June 13, 2016: The Ministry of Education is confirming that the Rio Claro APS Vedic Primary School was re-opened today, Monday 13th June, 2016, following the closure of the school by the Vedic Education Board.
Students, teachers and staff members were denied access to the school compound since Tuesday 7th June 2016, when the school gate was locked and security officers were changed. The actions by the Board followed claims of misconduct by a teacher. The Board has demanded the Ministry of Education’s immediate intervention.
An official investigation has been launched into the matter. Meanwhile, the Honourable Anthony Garcia, Minister of Education will meet with members of the Vedic Education Board on Wednesday 15th June, 2016 to further address their concerns.
