WESTERN ISLES DENIES VENDETTA AGAINST FORMER TEACHER

The teacher who was sacked after calling his employer, Western Isles Council, 'the jackass of Scottish education' looks set to be further punished by having his pension cut.

The Herald (p5) reports that people close to Angus McCormack, until two weeks ago an assistant headteacher as the Nicloson Institute in Stornoway, yesterday revealed that he had been warned his pension will be cut and 'other payments' also witheld.

In a local newspaper article, Mr McCormack, a member of the executive council of the Educational Institute of Scotland, attacked the council's efforts to reform their school system.

Now friends of Mr McCormack claim there is a vendetta against him, an allegation which the council denies.

Western Isles Council confirmed that Mr McCormack's contract had been terminated for breaching policy on contact with media. A spokesman said he was unable to discuss private financial arrangements between the authority and a former employee.
