A male teacher, Alexander Price, 43, has been sacked after comparing schoolgirls to ‘prostitutes’ and ‘Kardashian clones’ on his secret gossip blog.
Price who teaches at Denbigh High School in north Wales had a blog that he operated anonymously called ‘The Provoked Pedagogue’ where he documented his thoughts like a diary.
In one article titled ‘The Problem With Prom’, Price called the event ‘a shallow, vacuous affair, about nothing more than who has spent the most on looking nice’.
He said the girls would spend ‘nine out of 12 months’ planning for prom when they should be learning.
Price, who teaches Design and technology, then shockingly said girls who went to prom ended up looking like a cross between ‘Eastern European prostitutes and trans-human Kardashian clones’.
He added: ‘The prom means more to them than GCSE results, the pressure builds and builds and when they should be studying they are on ASOS. ‘Young girls in school fresh-faced or pimpled are plastered in make-up because they feel pressure from all angles, often including the school.
‘Parents getting paid alone to pay for hair extensions and lip pumping, botox for some and dermal peels for others – make-up so thick that when it cracks it rivals tectonic plates.
‘Then there’s the fake tan: ludicrous shades and colours that defy even the unlimited variations provided by the human gene.’
Parents got to find out he was the owner of the blog and reported him to the school authorities who formed a panel to investigate the allegations.
The panel ruled the posts were ‘inappropriate’ and ‘offensive’ and found he had committed unacceptable professional conduct.
Panel chair Steve Powell said the comments ‘were disrespectful’ and were likely to cause offence to any pupil or parent who came across them.
The school has now sacked the teacher .
Powell added: ‘It was particularly concerning that a focus on these comments and the article as a whole was on families from poor backgrounds in an unnecessary and unwarranted way.’
Price, in reaction to the panel’s decision, admitted writing the blogs but denied they amounted to unacceptable professional conduct.
He said the panel had not taken the blogs in the proper context.
