A teacher in Germany has been dismissed after sending indecent messages of a sexual nature to one of his 16 year old pupils.
Sexual interest made known over social network
The 40 year old teacher wrote a number of messages to one of his 16 year old pupils over a social network. The contact between the two lasted for several months and ended when the teacher made his sexual interest known to the girl.
The schoolgirl informed the school council of the sexual advances and the local authority then banned the teacher from teaching and dismissed him from his civil service position.
The teacher brought an action against the authorities claiming that his dismissal and the teaching ban were disproportionate to his actions.
He admitted that he had made a mistake, but argued that, as no sexual contact had taken place, the appropriate disciplinary action would have been to move him to a different school.
Proportionate dismissal of a teacher
The administrative court of Aachen rejected the teacher’s claim.
The court took the view that verbal sexual advances are sufficient to justify the dismissal of teacher and a future teaching ban.
