(blackmediaSCOOP) I don’t even know where to start with this mess! A teacher who told a special needs pupil she put a voodoo curse on him and that she could drown him has been banned from teaching for four years. ONLY 4 YEARS?!
49 year old Roslyn Holloway pulled out some of a child’s hair and wrapped it around a voodoo doll before telling her horrified students that if she dropped the doll in water the student would drown!
The teacher also yanked out clumps of a child’s hair when he wouldn’t stop talking and told another she would never kiss him because he was a ‘big hairy frog’ a General Teaching Council panel heard.
Just days after the voodoo incident, she threatened to pull out some of another student’s hair if he did not stop talking and followed through with the threat when he would not be quiet, before threatening to put a voodoo curse on him.
The teacher was formally charged for battery following the incidents but allegedly kept the charges a secret from her employers. Holloway has now moved from Shropshire to Yell, Shetland, after being dismissed from Lord Silkin Trust School.
Do you think 4 years probation is enough time?
