Damning report slams Chris Spence for ‘egregious breach of trust’

Chris Spence was “deceptive and manipulative” when he deliberately engaged in “repeated and extensive plagiarism” that violated public trust and tarnished the reputation of the education profession, the Ontario College of Teachers has found.

The former education director of the Toronto District School Board was stripped of his teaching licence in December after a college discipline committee found him guilty of professional misconduct.

This week, the reasons for that decision — the harshest penalty available to the college and a first for a plagiarism case — were made public in a 50-page report posted on the College of Teachers website.

    Blacks and disempowered POC can’t plagiarize, only whites can plagiarize!

      Whiteout privilege!

    Doesn’t think he should lose his teacher’s license because he has taken responsibility for his mistakes. I don’t believe a narcissist like Spence has any idea what ‘taking responsibility’ means. He also thinks his plight can be a positive message to children about getting back up after you’ve been knocked down !!? What a creep.

  • This is the Toronto District School Board. I’m sure there is an “honour among thieves” joke in here somewhere and I’ve got to find it.

      The sacrificial lamb to take any heat off the rest of the Board. Expect a statement that they have cleaned house and are eager to get back to the misspending, distributing explicit brochures, and allowing just muslims to pray on school premises while separating out the menstruating girls during those prayers.

      • I don’t think Christ Spence will like being that sacrificial lamb.

        He who lives by the left and so on.
