UK: Number of teachers banned for sexual misconduct TREBLES over year

THE number of teachers banned for sexual misconduct has nearly TREBLED in the past year - with campaigners linking the rise to a "Jimmy Savile-effect".

A total of 30 teachers were sacked from the classroom in the first six months of this year alone for sexual offences and sleazy behaviour.

In the previous six months, 21 were banned from teaching by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) and just 11 in the six months before.

Among those who were fired this year for their behaviour include Michael Woodhouse, an art teacher from Staffordshire who had sex with a 16-year-old pupil at his house.

The 38-year-old also performed sex acts on her in his car and sent her notes saying "I love you".  (more...)
