A British teacher has reportedly been suspended for two years after accusing his young female students of dressing like “Eastern European prostitutes and Kardashian clones.”
Design and technology teacher Alexander Price, 43, made the crude dig in an anonymous blog about school life — in which he also accused his male pupils of having “snorted coke,” according to a misconduct hearing reported by WalesOnline.
He said the “literacy was so poor” the kids couldn’t read instructions on their fake tan, and referred to “overweight girls being shoehorned into gowns and paraded through the town like cattle,” the report said.
After being exposed, Price claimed he wrote his blog, “The Provoked Pedagogue,” as a “cathartic” exercise while trying to make it “colorful and entertaining,” the report said.
The teacher at Denbigh High School in Wales admitted writing the blogs, but denied they amounted to unacceptable professional conduct, the outlet said.
However, a panel ruled against him, saying that the posts were “inappropriate, offensive, or derogatory” to pupils, parents and colleagues.
The blog posts “were critical, they were disrespectful, they were likely to cause offense to any pupil or parent who came across the article,” the panel’s chair, Steve Powell, said.
He was struck off for two years, meaning he is forbidden from teaching in that period but can reapply to teach again at the end of it.
His union rep, Colin Adkins, said the ruling was “chilling in that it has inhibited freedom of speech,” the outlet said.
