Students of the College of Baccalaureates, in Nazarene Etla, Oaxaca, denounced a computer science teacher for sexual harassment, which had to be protected and removed from the campus by the municipal police.
On Thursday, students placed a reporting linemaker against José “N” and then confronted him while teaching.
Following the complaint, the teacher was locked in a room until the arrival of elements of the Ministry of Public Security of Oaxaca (SSPO), who removed him from the campus and transferred to the Public Ministry of Etla.
According to the Quadratín Oaxaca medium at least 14 students indicated that they were harassed or conditioned by this teacher in exchange for good grades.
Students commented that they filed a complaint at the campus management, but that school authorities only filed a 3-month unpaid penalty.
On social media, videos circulated of the moment the teacher was taken off campus among the student’s claims.
