PARENT’S of a ten year old boy have accused his teacher of physically assaulting their son at his school in Camp de Turia (Valencia). They allege in a letter to the Ministry of Education that the boy was assaulted and then dragged several meters by the teacher. They have also alleged that he was subjected to a sustained campaign of physical and mental bullying by his fellow pupils at the small village school. When he had complained to teaching staff they had ignored him or even punished him before this latest incident prompted the parents to finally complain. At this time the school refutes the claims and there is an internal investigation underway by the regional education authorities.
