Teachers demand the right NOT to report children to anti-terror units even if they fear they are at risk of coming under the influence of extremists


Leaders at the National Union of Teachers (NUT) say the government should abolish counter-terror rules in schools, which they say have had a ‘chilling’ effect on debate. Under the governments’ Prevent duty, schools are obliged to alert the authorities if they spot signs that a pupil is at risk of coming under the influence of extremism.

    Keep standing up for the jihadists, twits. They’ll thank you by killing you last. Or maybe they’ll be so impressed, they’ll keep you around as a house anglo, to keep teaching their kids.

    All citizens are to report any seditious behaviour to Big Brother, under penalty of Room 101.

    This from people who call the police when an 8 year-old chews his sandwich into the shape of a gun?

      That was in the USA. This NUT organization is in Britain.

        same thought process, different continent.

        All of these NUTS should be shelled. Or maybe using them for bayonet practice would be more useful.

    It sounds like most younger Toronto teachers, like a few school trustees and just about everybody at OISE.

      You got that right.

  • Can you spell Dhimmi class?

    Considering the kinds of things that get reported to the Thought Police in the UK, such as a boy wanting to join the military to kill terrorists, and a kid noticing that people of other races look different, this may be a good idea.

    Like: Does a baby girl come to school with Islamic supremacist (i.e., ultra-hateful) garb? This is a sure sign that their parents or guardians are extremists/militants that threaten the security and safety of non-Muslims. Failure to repel this has a chilling effect on liberty. These baby Islamist thugs are supposed to always win every argument, on pain of death (randomly enforced by way of playing Muslim-roulette).

    The union’s acronym is somehow appropriate.
