Letter: Double jeopardy for teacher
The Bolton News
Thursday 09 Jun 2011
Chairman Aaron King stated: “All teachers are role models and we have heard that you are a good teacher. That such offences have been committed by you could well have an effect upon pupils’ perception of the risks associated with drugs and undermine other teaching in a school to the contrary.”
So Mr Taylor was a good teacher, his cannabis offences had no direct effect on his teaching, yet he is being punished for a second time (double jeopardy).
In any case, any affect on pupils would disappear after two years.
Any teacher consuming alcohol nightly to excess and which had no effect on his teaching would be left alone.
There is something very wrong there.
