At the end of July we reported on the case of Kato Harris, a highly regarded geography teacher. He was cleared by a jury in little more than 20 minutes, following his trial for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl at his school. Her wealthy parents regularly sent her to the United States for psychotherapy. Yet another CPS-inspired show trial. Our piece is here. Mr Harris was left with legal bills of nearly £200,000.
Media coverage of subsequent events has been light. On 4 September The Times ran a piece titled, ‘Top school delays return of teacher cleared of rape’. It started:
A leading private school has refused to allow Kato Harris, the teacher cleared of raping a teenage pupil, to start back at work this week.
Elizabeth Hewer, the head teacher at St George’s in Ascot, Berkshire, has written to families with girls at the £30,000-a-year school to advise them that Harris will not be returning at the start of the new term on Wednesday.
It is understood that child protection procedures in relation to his return have not been completed.
Despite his acquittal in court, several parents have raised concerns about Harris’s resumption of his role at the girls’ school.
Kato Harris was reportedly described as an ‘outstanding’ teacher by colleagues and pupils. He subsequently decided to abandon teaching as a career.
Feminists were responsible for men suspected of rape – not necessarily even charged (e.g. Sir Cliff Richard, Paul Gambaccini, Lord Bramall…) – not having anonymity.
Feminists at the CPS were responsible for this show trial, one of many under the evil eye of Alison Saunders.
Men have committed suicide with less provocation.
Should we be surprised that so many young men decide teaching is too toxic a profession for men these days? Surely not. The current proportion of female teachers in secondary schools is around 70%, and will surely rise further, while classroom assistants – not required in my school days in the 60s and early to mid 70s, when most teachers were men – are virtually all women. The state is the ultimate job creation scheme for women. Two-thirds of public sector workers are women.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
