英近千名教师被控与学生发生性关系

2014-01-17    来源:mirror.co.uk    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

据英国《镜报》报道,官方数据显示,英国过去五年约有959名教职工被控与学生发生性关系,其中至少254人受到警方正式控告,目前尚不清楚有多少人被起诉或定罪,或因证据不足被驳回起诉。

Hundreds of teachers accused of having sexual relationships with pupils

More than 950 teachers and support staff have been suspended, disciplined, or dismissed following allegations during the past five years.

More than 950 teachers have been accused of having sexual relationships with pupils in the last five years, official figures reveal today.

A Freedom of Information request asked 200 local authorities how many staff were suspended, disciplined, or dismissed after being accused of having some form of sexual relationship with a student.

Some 959 teachers and support staff were listed by 137 councils who returned figures, and of those, at least 254 led to a police charge, according the FOI request for BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat programme.

However, it is not clear how many of these led to a prosecution or a conviction, or were dismissed because of a lack of evidence.

A further 42 councils said they did not hold the statistics or could not hand them over because of costs or data protection laws.

Many of the authorities that did not have the figures said it was because schools in their area had outsourced HR provisions to private firms. Councils also have no control over academy schools.

Since 2001 it has been illegal for an adult in a position of trust, like staff in schools and colleges, to have sex with an under 18-year-old they are responsible for even though the age of consent is 16.

Newsbeat heard from ‘Ella’, not her real name, who says her teacher began to offer her one-to-one lessons when she was 15.

“I had a crush on this guy so I was really flattered by the attention,” she said.

She says he kissed her in a classroom and they began to meet outside of school: “Very quickly it progressed from a kiss to him starting to want more.”

“He would put his hand down my top and then the next time that I would go back he would try and do it again.” Ella says her teacher forced her to have sex by telling her it was how adults proved they loved each other.

“I said to him I’m not ready, I do not want to, I’m not comfortable, and he just sort of ignored it,” she said. Although rumours spread around her school at the time, she was never properly questioned.

It was only when she reached her 20s that she found the confidence to go to police. During an investigation another victim came forward.

Her teacher was given a 12-year prison sentence after being found guilty of rape, indecent assault and another serious sexual assault.

Both the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) say any teacher that abuses their position of trust should face the full force of the law.

But both unions say they also have serious concerns about the impact of false accusations on teachers’ lives, careers and health while malicious claims are investigated.

Christine Blower, the general secretary of the NUT said: “There can be misunderstandings and malicious allegations are made, so it is critical that investigations are carried out quickly with due process.”  (mirror.co.uk)

相关介绍:

BBC一档新闻节目根据《信息自由法》规定,要求200个地方政府提供相关数据。 其中,137家机构提供了数据,42家机构称不掌握相关数据,或出于成本或信息保护的原因无法提供相关数据。

另外,有些学校的教师属于外聘人员,而专科学校不归地方政府管理,也导致了数据不够完善。

在英国,一般与16岁以下未成年人发生性关系属于犯罪。但自2001年起,由于学校教职工受到学生信赖,因此他们只要与18岁以下人士发生性关系就属于违法。

一名匿名女性受害者对BBC节目表示,她曾在15岁时收到一名男教师一对一补课的邀请。“我当时对那个男人很有好感,所以发现他也关注我的时候受宠若惊,”她回忆说。

该名男教师在随后的补课中从亲吻开始迅速演变成动手动脚,最后甚至还花言巧语诱骗女孩与其发生性关系。二人的不正当关系在学校成为人尽皆知的秘密,但却始终没有人正式过问此事,这名女受害者直到20多岁才鼓起勇气报案。

英国全国教师工会和教师与讲师协会要求严惩滥用教师权威的人,但也担心有人会对教师有所误解,甚至捏造罪名进行虚假指控。
