I’ve only just picked up the last Pink News (18 Dec) and it carries a fascinating story on page 4 with the title ‘Convicted Teacher Weeps at hearing’. According to the piece a headteacher who has been convicted of outraging public decency at a Birmingham ‘beauty spot’ was allowed to continue as a Headteacher but reprimanded by the General Teaching Council. He continues to assert he is innocent of the crime and the governors at the school stood by him. Would the governors have stood by a convicted man who pleased guilty? Should public sex in this sort of situation (where he was arrested by a plain clothes policeman) really lead to such devastation of someones life? The paper can be viewed here.
