Teacher who claims to be Jesus suspended

ANTALYA – Anadolu Agency

A teacher in the Mediterranean province of Antalya was suspended on April 22 after he told his student that he is Jesus.

School officials took the action after hearing that the Turkish citizen English language teacher told sixth-grade students that he is Jesus and knows the date of the Judgement Day, said Haluk Şimşek, a local official in the Serik district in Antalya.         

Halil Koca, a local official who has children attending the school, told Anadolu Agency that the subjects the teachers discussed were inappropriate for 11-year-olds.        

The teacher is setting a bad example, he added.
