    The teacher should be investigated about the veracity of his/her accusation. The boy is an achiever and exposing him to public shaming and cyberbullying is such a painful experience for him to think of co
    mitting suicide. Teen stage is a very delicate stage and teachers should be the first person to exemplify righteousness and compassion rather than be vindictive .
