Teachers forced to strip
19 Oct

The Ministry of Education in Antigua and Barbuda has promised to investigate the "deeply" disturbing and troubling incident that led to fourteen educators at the All Saint Secondary School being strip searched by police.

Last week Thursday, the educators were still on the compound when lawmen responded to a report made by the school's music teacher that the four thousand, five hundred dollars which she left in her handbag at the staff room was stolen.

Lawmen strip searched the male and female educators and instructed them to squat and cough in an attempt to find money which was not recovered.

Thursday, Director of Education, Clare Browne revealed that he contacted the acting commissioner of police, Atlee Rodney who indicated he had no knowledge of the incident, but has promised to launch an investigation.
