British teachers wish to prosecute students

United Kingdom,Education,Immigration/Law/Rights, Mon, 09 Apr 2012 IANS

London, April 9 (IANS) British teachers have called for prosecuting students who falsely accuse them of assaults following concern over a rising number of malicious allegations.


The teachers' trade unions want pupils be routinely reported to the police after making unfounded claims simply to get their own back on teachers, The Telegraph reported.


According to teachers' trade union The NASUWT, lying schoolchildren "must understand there is a consequence" to making allegations that are "unjust and malicious".


The comments came in the wake of new figures showing the vast majority of claims made against teachers were unsubstantiated.


Data from the NASUWT shows that fewer than one in 20 allegations of unlawful behaviour made against teachers last year - including assault, sexual abuse and serious threats - resulted in court action.
