The teacher unions oppose Charter Schools ont eh basis that registration of teachers isn’t mandatory. They claim that because of compulsory registration that children are better protected.
Presumably this teacher caught filming upskirt videos was registered. What’s the bet the Teacher Unions will back him to the hilt:
A Canterbury teacher has been arrested for allegedly filming an upskirt video at a Riccarton shopping mall.
The 56-year-old appeared in the Christchurch District Court today charged with making an intimate visual recording.
He was granted interim name suppression and remanded on bail until December 6, to enable him to contact a lawyer.
Police allege the man behaved in an offensive manner, intentionally made an intimate visual recording of another person at the Westfield Riccarton mall and was in possession of the recording.
Police said the alleged offending happened in the food court area about mid-afternoon on Saturday.
Both a camera and his home computer had been confiscated by police for further analysis.
A man who works at the mall, but did not wish to be identified, said the victim, a woman who looked in her 20s, appeared unaware of what was apparently happening.
The man said the suspect appeared to be trying to dispose of the camera when approached by mall security.
The school’s board of trustees chairman said the board was aware of the charges.
