Certains enseignants préfèrent démissionner

Cet article de Richard Garner du Independant révèle que de plus en plus d'enseignants innocents démissionnent après avoir fait l'objet de fausses accusations.

Le climat de terreur est tel que même des enseignants qui n'ont jamais été la cible d'allégations préfèrent changer de carrière pour éviter que cela leur arrive.

Extraits de l'article:

Innocent teachers and school staff are quitting their jobs after false allegations against them by pupils because they cannot cope with the stigma, according to a report out today.

Some teachers are even considering quitting the profession, despite not having had any allegations levelled against them, through fear that it might happen.

More than one in five school and college staff (22 per cent) surveyed had been the target of a false allegation by a pupil while one in seven had been subjected to a false accusations by a pupil’s parent or family friend. Often the allegations by the pupil were made because they “didn’t like being told off by school or college staff”.

The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), which conducted the poll, said the number of false allegations made by pupils was rising.

One teacher in the South-east, said: “My late husband was falsely accused by a child he had taught. Even though the Crown Prosecution Service held there was no case to answer, he was a broken man.

“He returned to work briefly, but had lost his nerve. The false accusation  wrecked our family life. My husband died of a sudden heart attack in his fifties.”

The most authoritative study of the situation, commissioned by the Department for Education in 2011, also concluded that the number of false allegations reported to local authorities was “on a rising trend”,  although it argued this could be because more were being reported.

(...) “Even if the allegation is shown to be false, it leaves a lasting scar,” said David Guiterman, ATL  branch secretary in Cornwall. “In a local case, a member decided to resign even though the allegation was shown to be false. He did not want to carry on lecturing.”

“The increasing occurrence of allegations is one reason why I will be leaving the profession sooner than I would like,” said a primary teacher in Kent.
