Teacher Sacked for Saying "Most Suicide Bombers are Muslims"
"Most suicide bombers are muslim". Is that a controversial thing to say? I'd have thought it was a statement of fact, yet a secondary school teacher has lost his job for uttering those words to a class of twelve year olds in Slough. He wasn't even given the chance to defend himself and was asked to leave because the "pupils were upset". More details HERE. Make sure you watch the accompaying video and make your own mind up as to whether it is actually the Deputy Head who should be sacked from his position rather than the teacher. If I were a school governor there, I would be less than impressed.
