(CNS): The Department of Education Services (DES) has confirmed that a staff member was removed Monday, less than a week after the start of the new term, from the Prospect Primary School in relation to an allegation of misconduct.

CNS understands that the individual was a teacher who was not new to the school. Officials provided few details but claimed to have taken swift action in response to the incident.

According to a press release, the DES referred the matter to the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) for investigation in the immediate wake of the report of misconduct involving a young student. Officials said this was the usual protocol when addressing child protection allegations involving staff.

DES Acting Director Elroy Bryan said the member of staff implicated in the alleged incident was removed from the school pending the outcome of the investigations to ensure the welfare of the students.

“We recognise and appreciate the concerns of parents, guardians, and the community and share their dedication to ensuring the safety and well-being of our students,” he said.

“We will continue to prioritise the welfare of students and maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards any misconduct. Our educators are responsible for nurturing and educating our children, and we expect them to uphold the highest standards of professionalism and care,” he added.

    How about removing Juliana as Education Minister as quickly as the assistant teacher was removed?

    A lunatic religious exorcist principal and now this. Parents if you have the money, save the future of this country by sending your children to private school, because the public schools do nothing but produce future criminals and religious lunatics, no real learning occurs.

    It’s good to know due process is being followed by CMR.

    Identified, image used, hung out to dry before any investigation is carried out.

    Regardless of the outcome, it really sucks.

      CMR – where you’re guilty until you’re prove-, nah, even if you’re proven innocent, she’ll just leave the post up to drive more controversy.

      See the other day where some badminded person reported a delivery driver who sat in HIS car eating HIS lunch about stealing food, but turned out the person had just got their food but reported him for eating theirs. A delivery driver isn’t going to pay a lawyer to take you to court.

      She is often reckless with her platform just to drive clicks, and foofools like us keep going back to it. Unfortunately (not that I don’t like unna but) CNS is the only other viable competitor.

        I cannot wait until she messes with somebody with the means to take her to court and shut her up for good.

        At the very least CMR is interfering with the investigation. She should be charged criminally but it seems everyone is scared to deal with her…everyone except me! Make her try that foolishness with me and she will learn who she can bully and scandal.

          I just don’t understand WHY people are scared of her? Because she has a big mouth? Because she is a bully? In all honesty, she’s just trashy low class wanna-be American.

            Why has the comments for this article turned in a “CMR/CMR host bashing contest”?

            While you may disagree with the CMR host to quickly post people’s photo and name before any charges are laid, the sad truth is because of the size of this island, a lot of people already know who it is and she is probably of the opinion that it is already in the public domain and she is free to post it.
            She just adds the “allegedly” to it and she is within her legal rights to say whatever she wants, it is her opinion and sometimes more than an opinion supported with videos, pictures and personal testimony.

            It is her platform and sometimes she has interesting segments and I just tune out from the other segments that I don’t want to listen to.

            You don’t have to listen to her, follow her page or read her articles.

            I don’t think people are afraid of her, the sad truth is the majority of people actually tune in to listen to her for the gossip!! Including the politicians, government workers and others.

            What has she done that you consider her a bully?
            She calls out whatever BS she sees and sometimes people are upset because they have been featured but that doesn’t make her a bully.

            If you ask a lot of people, they feel like she is their voice, she is a big advocate for a sex-offender registry, big advocate for protecting children and increasing sentencing laws for child molesters, rapists etc, she assists solving petty crimes just to mention a few.

            I am not sure why you think she is a “wanna-be American” because I think she lived in America for quite some time and I believe she was even married to an American but didn’t seem to have any interest in being an American citizen and she always claims she is “proud to be Caymanian to the the bone.”

            I also think you calling her “trashy and low class” says more about you than it does her. That just makes you look emotional and petty.

            I don’t always agree with things she says but she also does a lot of good for people on the island and I feel she may not be everyone’s cup of tea but are any of us?

            Frankly, she does not give a darn about your or my opinion so you are just wasting your energy hating and talking smack about her on this platform.

              Funny how you talk about wasting energy and you just wrote the biggest comment on this post. Ha haaaaaaa. And BULLY she is, that’s my opinion just like yours is that she “does a lot of good”. Yeah right, with her gossip rag, naming people before she should, writing how people have died when they haven’t (FACT CHECKED MUCH?), and I could go on. I, for one, am glad to read that others feel the same ways as I do, and I am pretty sure she LOVES this kind of attention, albeit just a comment on a post. She can talk as much smack as anyone, the difference is the crap she writes about on CMR when it isn’t true in the first place.

              • Anon. says:

                You are entitled to your opinion, which I have acknowledged, all I am saying is if you are so upset with her why are you still reading/listening to her “gossip rag”.

                Do you dispute that she hasn’t done good things for people? If so, I think a lot of people will disagree with you because she doesn’t publicize all that she does.

                I don’t agree with everything she says or does but I am not emotional and ranting about it like you.

                Sometimes she gets it wrong and I acknowledge the point that in some cases she can cause harm with her inaccuracies but calm down before you have a stroke.

                You comment implies that you are highly upset which took more energy out of you to write your post than I did to write my “big comment”. Am easy like Sunday morning.

                Like I said she doesn’t care about my or your opinion, she is living her best life and I am not going to allow her to upset me or rent space in my head to the point that she has clearly upset you.

                Be blessed my dear.

              I would definitely call an adult who used their online platform with thousands of followers, to publicly berate, insult, sexualize and swear at a troubled underaged girl, a bully.

              But that’s just me I guess

          She has been criminally charged on several occasions, and been the subject of civil suits. The criminal prosecutions have been a lamentable failure and she skates through the civil ones with minimal apparent damage.

      Best way to get her back? Don’t read her garbage and don’t visit the companies that choose to advertise with her such as Burger King.

      • Anonymous says:

        Unfortunately, the ‘news’ she carries is sometimes useful and timely.

        As for advertisers, I wouldn’t know who to avoid without looking at the hellscape that is CMR. That said, Popeyes, Burger King and their ilk aren’t my preferred choices anyhow!

        Those wings she advertising for them are so horrible, sorry not sorry because it’s almost false advertising and I know that’s not right to do.

      Careful! She is responsible for the formation of the current Government! Let’s not forget that come next election. I do note the Premier has reduced his reliance on her for PR. Too late though, we won’t forget how she bullied the newly elected to join him and how she campaigned for him in Newlands.
