Our thanks to Sean for this. Kato Harris was cleared of raping a pupil, yet the papers keep naming him and publishing photograph of him. Excerpts:
A geography teacher cleared of raping a pupil has warned that men should steer clear of the profession, after a false allegation shattered his dream career.
Kato Harris, a former head of department at an all-girls school in London, was accused of attacking a 14-year-old three times in a classroom during lunch breaks in autumn 2013, but was found not guilty after a trial last year.
The 38-year-old said before his ordeal began, “life was like a wonderful dream”, and with a successful career and a child also on the way he was “looking forward to a great future”…
He told the newspaper [Mail on Sunday] : “I would certainly advocate that no man qualify as a teacher. It is just not worth it. What is the lesson here? There is nothing to protect the male teacher.”…
“I had to give up my dream job because of a crime I didn’t commit,” he said.
“I am unemployed, living in a bedsit and will soon be on housing benefit. I am toxic.”
Mr Harris, who said he is now considering a job in a crematorium, added: “If I knew on the day I qualified what I know now, I would never have become a teacher.
“I will never work with children again. I will never put myself in that position of vulnerability.”
So what does Justine Greening, the (lesbian) Education Secretary and Minister for Women & Equalities, have to say about this case, and others like it? Or for that matter, the education gender gap which has been with us for 30 years, following the replacement of ‘O’ levels by GCSEs in order to advantage girls over boys? Or the relentless feminisation of the education system, which has been as damaging to that system as the feminisation of the NHS has been to that? Precisely nothing, because none of these things are regarded as problems by feminists. And yet male voters keep voting in their thousands at every general election for women like Greening, Harriet Harman, Yvette Balls etc. Turkeys voting for Xmas, all of them.
