Parents want teacher reinstated over 'suicide' essay

THE parents association at a school where a teacher was suspended for asking pupils to imagine they were about to commit suicide has asked for him to be reinstated.

The teacher was suspended on Monday after some parents complained that children aged between 13 and 14 were told to imagine reasons for wanting to end their lives and describe their self-disgust.

But on Tuesday the parents association said that it wanted to see the teacher allowed back into class to continue teaching French to students at Montmoreau-Saint-Cybard secondary school in the Charente region.
