Reports of Violence by UNRWA Teaching Staff Emerge in AlHusainiya Camp

Residents of AlHusainiya Camp denounced teachers’ recourse to violence at a UNRWA-run school, saying their children were beaten at the school using sticks.

A pupil’s father said his son was beaten by his tutor because he did not wrap his books and copybooks.

“I am the father of a pupil enrolled at one of your schools. I barely earn 40,000 Syrian Pounds monthly. I have to wait for an entire month to pass by in order to be able to afford money to cover my son’s educational fees and purchase furniture. Had I been paid more than 40,000 Syrian Pounds, I would not have brought my son to your school,” said the father as he addressed UNRWA staff.

“You have to bear in mind that we do not earn as much money as you do. There are students who have lost their mothers or/and fathers in the war. You have to take into consideration our children’s tragic situation before you take hold of the stick and hit them mercilessly”, he added. 

Sometime earlier, residents of AlHusainiya Camp railed against the exacerbated educational services in the area and appealed to UNRWA and school headmasters to take urgent action.
