iF HE WAS SUFFERING WITH STRESS AND DEPRESSION HE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AT WORK.

This man attacked a child, no teacher should ever do that, however much of a little sh*t the child is being, he should have walked out and got back up to have the child escorted to the head teacher.

Not fractured his skull, he shouted 'die, die, die' fgs!!

hOW CAN ANYONE AGREE WITH A TEACHER BEATING A CHILD IN THE HEAD AND ALMOST KILLING HIM?!?!
the child was gouding (sp?) the teacher. i have seen teachers being bullied and they can not do a thing about it because they can't touch the child to remove it from the class, otherwise they get sued. I also think teachers can be very weak. I've seen children being given warning after warning after warning and nothing happens to the child, no punishment for misbehaving, just warnings. What the hell does that do? The children know they can get away with it.

The teacher also has a child recently diagnosed with asperger's and a wife who has severe depression. A lot of GP's after signing you off work etc recommend going back and getting stuck in, he would not have gone back to work against his GP's advice, he was told he could go back and the school I would assume knew he was off for stress.

At the end of the day what he did was wrong, of course it was, but I don't think you could ever expect someone with so many problems at the time to cope with anything like that. I think its a shame that pupils can be so cruel, but I've seen it be done even in schools high up in the league tables etc.

Its easy to get wound up and the poor guy just couldn't take it. He admitted openly he thought he had killed him and felt a sense of peace when he stopped hurting the boy, he sounds like he really has had an incredibly tough time and I don't think any of us who don't know the ins and outs can judge any different to what the court ruled.

While I don't want the man out of a job I too cannot condone violence against a student in his care.

Fine, he was being goaded. The student is probably a git with half a brain cell but he is a TEENAGER and teenagers push boundaries. Teachers know what to expect these days, teaching isn't all rainbows and daisies. Most teenagers couldn't give a sh*te about school.

If he was struggling with whatever problems he should have taken time off work or even asked for a transferr to somewhere else (if that's possible, not sure how teaching works).

There is never an excuse for this sort of abuse.

I don't agree with the student either. Kids have no respect for anyone, not even themselves. If he'd done this out on the street too right he would have got a kick in - but what makes that any better??

The kid will not be cowed by this and the teacher's reputation is ruined. A sad case all round.

Would just like to add that i dont think hitting anyone with a dumbell is ok, the kid probably deserved a good whack for his vile behaviour but to fracture someones skull especially someone in your care is wrong and to do it infront of other students- some who had nothing to do with it, is just plain wrong.

Thats my opinion

Well put, there's far too much violence these days and everyone seems to have an "excuse" for it. I agree very sad.

He taught a friend of mine (it is a local school... a VERY good school). She said he was one of the most laid back teachers that had a good raport with all the kids and that it must have taken a hell of a lot of pushing to get him to snap like that.

If found innocent there is obviously a lot of information that hasn't been in the press for us all to see

OK, it was a bit harsh to hit the kid over the head with a dumbell three times, however until something is done teenagers are going to get completely out of control. Until someone brings them down a peg or two and ruins their 'street cred', they're going to be making life hell for other people. It all stems from a media-obsessed culture, too much social networking, left-wing imbosiles and dysfunctional families.

Teenagers are constantly learning about their 'human rights' and exploiting every single loophole in them to the point when they can go and do as they god damn please, unchallenged and unchecked. They'll push it as far as they can to see how far they really can go and have a laugh at other people's expense.

Whilst in no way do I condone his actions I can't help but feel sorry for the teacher. He was obviously not well & in retrospect should not have been at work.
I was reading about him in the papers this morning & he has shown nothing but remorse for his actions & didn't even apply for bail whilst on remand (something that he probably would have got). I just really hope that everyone involved in this is able to move on from this.

I actually know quite a few people who were taught by this man.He had been a very good teacher but struggled with controling a class as he was too soft. Students knew this and he had been picked on for this for years. Obviously with so much going on in his life he snapped I dont think many people could have coped :( . The kids were totally out of control and knew what they were doing they were trying to make him crack and were even filming it !!!!!


Obviously I dont condone what he did, kids should be safe at school. I blame the staff around him for not giving him enough support in such a hard time, in many ways he is a victim as is the boy he hit.

I agree, I expect the school knew he was off for stress related problems and I would have thought that they could have helped him a bit more when he returned, be it giving him older students who were less likely to mess him around or just making sure he knew he could go to them for support and leave a lesson if it did get that bad...its a shame, poor chap will be well and truly lost now :(
