The far left communist controlled teaching union, the NASUWT says that teachers who have sex with their pupils should not be treated as sex offenders. The NASUWT General Secretary Chris Keates said that it is wrong to criminalise teachers.
The NASUWT argument is that if it is ok for an ordinary citizen to have a physical relationship with a pupil then it should be ok for teachers but what they fail to address is the fact that teachers are in a very special and privileged position with certain unique responsibilities. Responsibilities which preclude them from sleeping with their pupils. An act which would be a total betrayal of the trust placed in them by parents and society and an abrogation of the duty of care they are legally required to uphold.
The article at the NASUWT web site says: "Commenting on the anomaly in the law which relates to teachers and others who work with children and young people, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest UK-wide teachers' union, said:
"From the time the Sexual Offences legislation was first drafted in 2001 the NASUWT consistently raised the significant anomaly within its provisions.
"A teacher having a consensual relationship with a pupil over the age of 16 on the roll of the school in which they teach is liable under the Act to prosecution and being placed on the sex offenders register.
"However, if the same teacher has a consensual relationship with a young person of the same age who attends another school they would not be prosecuted or classed as sex offenders."
It is my personal opinion that in either instance they should be hung and when this sorry state of affairs finally runs full circle and this vile despicable leftist system comes to an end with change always inevitable. When normality and decency returns to our currently morally bankrupt society, then, that is exactly what they will get....
