STAND-OFF IN PUPIL EXPULSION POWER STRUGGLE

Hopes that a deal would prevent a strike by teachers at a school in Nottinghamshire over an unruly 10-year-old pupil were fading last night, reports The Guardian (p6).

The National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers, on behalf of the seven teachers at Manton Junior, said the only solution was for the boy to be taught in isolation for the whole academic year.

But the chair of the governors Eileen Bennett, who has sided with the boy, said this would be unacceptable to his mother.

Mrs Bennett accuses the NASUWT of using him in its national campaign to increase the power of teachers to discipline unruly children.

The boy is staying at home this week while a deal is thrashed out.
