Principal faces bribery allegations from staff

Teachers from the Srah Banteay Hun Sen high school in Kampong Thom province’s Baray district accused their principal yesterday of receiving bribes from students in exchange for allowing them to skip classes. Sea Bun Long, a representative for the teachers at the high school, said yesterday that the school principal received about US$150 per year from individual students so that they could skip classes but still take exams. Sao Phy, principal of Srah Banteay Hun Sen high school, denied the teachers’ claims and said they were confused because classrooms at the school could not accommodate its expanding population.
