Garcia: Decisive action will be taken against delinquent students


    Education Minister Anthony Garcia says he is not afraid to suspend or even expel students who behave badly.

    His statement follows an incident at a Barataria school, where students reportedly beat a teacher who attempted to confiscate scratch bombs.

    Mr Garcia says teachers must be protected, while students like that do not belong in the education system.
