Teacher, Police officer suspended for encouraging kids to fight in class
Female teacher and school police sergeant have been suspended for allegedly arranging a fight between two schoolboys
Police Sergeant Olquidea Medina Feliz and teacher Ana Elia Mateo Abad were suspended the day after the video was uploaded on social media, where it caught the attention of the school authorities.
The fight occurred during a class and was captured in the city of Boca Chica, in the southern Dominican Republic province of Santo Domingo.
The footage displays a classroom full of screaming children who gather in a circle to watch as two boys in the middle get ready to fight each other.
The children are seen repeatedly hitting and kicking each other.
A woman in a police uniform appears, but instead of stopping the violence she appears to push other pupils of the class back to stop them getting in the way.
Another woman, presumably the teacher, can then be seen doing the same thing trying to calm the excited spectators so that the boys can continue their scrap.
The two female members of staff have been reprimanded for not intervening in the fight.
The case remains under investigation by the Dominican Ministry of Education.
