The teacher’s story
According to the version told by the teacher, the attack would have occurred on 23 September last, during the third hour of class. The professor had caught the student disturbing the law and economics lesson with her behavior. When the teacher gave her the note, the student promised him vendetta. Revenge that she would come shortly after, according to the teacher: two people, in fact, after breaking into the institute, attacked the professor, threatening – moreover – further retaliation if he sanctioned the student again. «All with an enormous sense of helplessness and in the silence of the school staff too. And not only that: those who hit me also hit me intimated not to allow me to repeat in the future to sanction the girl again in order not to incur the risk of suffering further punishment “, says the professor at Corriere del Mezzogiorno. The psychophysical conditions of the teacher, who returned to Puglia after 16 years of teaching in Northern Italy, after the aggression suffered “are not yet such as to resume activity at school”.
