A cooking teacher from Wellant MBO Amsterdam has been poisoned by a student. In retaliation for a mobile phone ban, the student added detergent into the teacher’s cup of tea. 

The teacher only knew of the student’s act when her tongue began tingling. She had to immediately seek medical attention, RTL Nieuws reports.

According to reports from the school, the student poisoned the teacher impulsively after the teacher told the student not to use their mobile phone.

A spokesperson from Wellant MBO has responded to the matter, saying that the school is ‘very shocked.’

“The student is very sorry. As school management, we were immediately informed and investigated the case. We are taking measures against the pupil,” the spokesperson said. 

The student, a minor, is now being transferred to a different school (and hopefully won’t be taking any cooking classes anytime soon).

The teacher, on the other hand? The school won’t say much, except that she is at home and is being treated.
