For many years I have resisted pressure to publish stories about teachers who abuse children.
I felt that the topic was already well covered in the mainstream media.
I also did not want the creepy people who trawl the internet for child abuse stories to be attracted to my website.
But this latest story (see below) has changed my mind.
I think you get what you pay for with teachers.
If the community chooses to provide teachers with horrible working conditions and low pay, if the entrance standards to the profession are driven down to the ground - this is the sort of teacher that you will eventually get - disgusting teachers.
I challenge the Queensland College of Teachers to track teaching graduates over several years and identify the signs (low intelligence? mental health problems? racial background? police record?) that indicate that a wannabe teacher may turn out to be a disgusting teacher.
Pay teachers a decent salary, give them decent working conditions and you will attract decent, intelligent people to the profession.
I do not want to be associated with fellow professionals who behave like this.
A first-year Queensland special education teacher conducted an eighteen-month s-xual relationship with an intellectually impaired student.
The student was aged less than 16.
The female teacher was in her early 20s.
She had s-x with the child in the back seat of her car, in her unit and in parks.
She had s-x with him before classes in a park right opposite their high school.
She also introduced the child to alcohol and cannabis.
The school principal was told of the relationship but it was not investigated further.
