A recent spate of attacks on teachers, one of which left a teacher at the Vauxhall High School, East Kingston dead has caused outrage among the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) and members of the public.

In the most recent incident, on Tuesday, the Dean of Discipline at Cornwall College, Montego Bay St.James was assaulted by a parent.

This comes on the heels of an attack on the Principal of Cornwall College also by a parent in recent months.

JTA president, Owen Speid is now calling on the Government of Jamaica to increase measures to protect teachers.
