A year 12 student at Vaimauga College was left with bruises to her face after allegedly being assaulted by a teacher.
Today, a concerned resident wants action taken to the abuse of students by teachers.
“The families of that student you beat up at your school today will come after you all,” wrote Merita Timu in a public Facebook comment. “Not all parents are fools. It's your responsibility to teach, not to beat them.”
The comment attracted dozens of responses, including some from teachers at the school.
