This must be a really, really, really bad case.
For once in their miserable lives the Teachers’ Council have finally deregistered a ratbag sicko teacher.
A 40-year-old teacher who had a physical relationship with a vulnerable teenage student has been deregistered.
The relationship began in 2011 and continued until 2013, when the student, who was undergoing counselling after her friend committed suicide, told her counsellor, the Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal said in a decision released today.
The student was in year 11 when the relationship began, meaning she was likely 15. She was in year 13 when it ended.
The student said she was scared of reporting the relationship, because of her part in initiating it and the effect it could have on the teacher.
She said their relationship involved hugging, cuddling and kissing which had progressed to fondling, digital penetration and oral sex.
The girl’s parents then discovered electronic communications between her and the teacher, which they considered to contain elements of “predatory intent, grooming, manipulation, threat and censure”, the tribunal decision said.
That is pretty gross a 40 year old shagging a 15 year old…almost as bad as cousin shagging.
