The fact is that, no matter what new procedures are introduced, an allegation levied at a teacher will destroy them, their life and their career. Anonymity, is the least concern - a press announcement and an absent teacher does not require the deductive reasoning of Sherlock Holmes to reach a conclusion of 'Who Dunnit' !
There are many suicides ... false allegations do kill ! Is it murder ? In my book it is; to deliberately subject any human being to stress with no regard for them or their feelings, knowing that they will be broken and destroyed by the process; suicide, in these circumstances, by definition, must be murder. (According to William Blackstone's analysis and legal definitions - "Reckless indifference to an unjustifiably high risk to human life and a conscious disregard of an unreasonable risk of death or serious bodily injury is murder.")
With reference to the prose, "The Ambulance In The Valley", the focus continues to be the provision of an improved ambulance service to deal with the injured. But where is the fence ?
Until there is UK wide social reform, the only protection available to a teacher has to be CCTV surveillance. There has been heated debate in the past on this topic but what else is there ? I would go further and suggest that teachers should be equipped with body worn cameras. If I could rewind two years then I would not hesitate to wear one ... it can save your life !
Help me to help others ... if you know someone who has authority / position in a senior government / education related role ... send them a link to my video ... the fight for justice must succeed
