The Police have far more good bloggers than any other profession. Along with many other things, I do not know why this is so.
Anyway, thanks to PC Bloggs (who writes at http://pcbloggs.blogspot.com/) for pointing out the article below:
I'm sure that there will be more to this story than meets the eye (just like Shanni Naylor a few months back, who turned out not to have been quite the angel that the Press initially portrayed her as)
However if no violent incident took place; then by involving the police, the school has certainly managed to make themselves appear ridiculous. This was the same borough where a few months ago a ten year old was brought to the courts after being reported by the Headmaster for 'using racist language in the playground'
The danger with all this is that the public will start to think of teachers as pc obsessed lunatics, not to be taken seriously. We seem to be ignoring the serious stuff and obsessing about the trivia.
Here's the classroom assistant Aisha Asmi who's been sacked for being utterly incomprehensible.
When she was interviewed (by a man) for the job, she 'forgot' to wear this highly important veil. How delighted I am that my taxes will be paying for her to take the school to an Employment Tribunal.
