School closures: Headmaster absconds with funds

School closures
Students, teachers and parents at the American Bridge School campuses in Kandal and Preah Vihear provinces will file a complaint to authorities after the schools’ director and three others allegedly fled with their money.

“The school opened more than a month ago. When staff and students returned after their vacation yesterday, the director had taken their money and escaped,” said Kok Chhoun, chief of Preah Vihear town’s Kampong Branak commune. “We’re searching for him now – we know his name is Ban Deth.”

Students had paid $250 a year to study, but the director had not paid any salaries after the first month of classes, Chhoun added.

Chea Mon, a teaching manager at the campus in Kandal province, said the closures affected hundreds of students and staff.

Four other campuses in Kandal province had been temporarily closed while police worked on the case, Mon added.
