TTPS investigating abuse of teachers during online classes


    Police are investigating several reports of verbal abuse of secondary school teachers during online classes.

    According to the TTPS, instances of abuse have been picked up by the Cyber and Social Media Unit.

    It says such conduct should cease immediately and it will be working to investigate and prosecuting such behaviour.

    The TTPS is also urging teachers to take all available measures to protect themselves and their students during their online sessions.

    This includes recording their sessions to identify disruptive and abusive behaviour and muting or removing abusive persons from the platform.

    Additionally, teachers are being told to accurately register students for each class.
