A science teacher at Whangarei's Pompallier Catholic College has been suspended.
Failing to bugger boys as part of his employment contract?
Mentioning in class all the great murdering fascist leaders in history received the same education as them?
Nope, not what immediately springs to mind.
Nigel Studdart (above) heinous crime in the eyes of employer was to support a student protest at their headmasters overt gay-bashing.
The courageous pupils and lone (ex?) teacher at Pompallie deserve our admiration for wanting to mount a pink-ribbon campaign against entrenched bigotry at their school.
They all clearly have a moral code not yet corrupted by their parents belief in a “good Catholic education”.
Yet, more evidence of the need to secularise all N.Z Schools.
