Lincs teachers may strike after expelled boy allowed back in school...

Lincolnshire teachers are threatening to strike over the teenager who has been allowed continue lessons after apparently setting up a website where classmates could threaten a teacher.

As I posted earlier today, the Head Teacher at Gleed Boys School permanently excluded the 14-year-old boy, but the school's governors over-turned the decision.

Now, the Spalding Guardian are posting on the story. It seems the boy was excluded at Easter after Head Geoff Cowley discovered that he put a page headed 'Kill Her' on a website which invited other pupils to make comments about the female teacher.

The pupil returned to school after the Governors overturned the Head's ruling. The teacher is said to be back on sick leave with stress after briefly returning to work.

The Guardian reports that teaching unions are balloting their members over whether they will teach or supervise the boy or take industrial action.
