British Teacher Banned After Abusing Muslim Staff Members


A teacher in Britain was fired after being convicted of abuse toward Muslim staff members. Authorities said she was banned for life from teaching after calling staff members “f—ing Muslims.”

Anupe Hanch was found guilty of improper professional behavior at work. The 49-year-old former teacher in Essex also was found to have engaged in bullying behavior toward pupils and other teachers.

The National College for Teaching and Leadership panel took two weeks to review evidence against Hanch before imposing a lifelong ban against her teaching. The panel’s report, published Friday, was based on 10 witness accounts about Hanch’s behavior.
