This is according to Second Vice President of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers’ Association (TTUTA), Lynsley Doodha.
He was referring to several videos that have been making the rounds recently on social media
In one of the videos, two school children fought with what appeared to be a police officer, who after trying to break up the fight, was also beaten by the girls.
In another video schoolgirls were seen fighting with MTS security guards when they intervened to try to break up the fight.
He revealed that there have always been these types of fights in school but with the advent of social media becoming more prevalent, these fights were now coming to the public’s attention.
It’s a sentiment that was echoed by President of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Association Devanand Sinanan in an interview with News Power Now yesterday.
The TTUTA President stated that teachers put their lives on the line every time they intervened in fights between students. He also said that violence in schools was a societal problem.
