No school for controversial principal on Monday
The school principal at the centre of controversy surrounding a bizarre incident, in which a male companion bit his penis, will not be at the controls when his institution reopens on Monday.
The principal went on sick leave shortly after the incident happened in April.
"He is still the principal, however, he will not be back at school for the start of the school term. I understand the concerns," the acting principal told THE WEEKEND STAR yesterday.
Some parents have expressed deep concerns about the possibility of the principal returning to the institution.
"The Education Minister says school administrators must screen the people who are employed in schools. I want to know if after such a public incident if dem a go allow him back here," a parent told our news team.
Police reports are that the principal was rescued after he was found along the roadway outside a popular restaurant and lounge located in Portmore, bleeding profusely from his private area.
In court, attorney-at-Law Ernest Smith, who represented the man accused of injuring the principal, said the principal "was a mentor," who "took my client out for drinks".
He said that instead of driving home his client, the principal tried to force himself upon his client, who refused his advances.
