AMMAN — Irbid’s Bani Obeid Education Directorate on Monday recommended that a student who allegedly attacked a principal and teacher be banned from public and private schools.

The 12th grade student at Zaha Iddin Hmoud School reportedly attacked the teacher in the classroom and punched him before the principal intervened and was assaulted as well.

Other teachers intervened and called the police, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Irbid police on Monday referred the student to the prosecutor general, according to Petra.

Bani Obeid Education Director Fawaz Tamimi said Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Mohammad Thneibat telephoned the principal and teacher and checked on their health condition.
