Should BNP members be allowed to teach?

russtic : The NASUWT has asked that (BNP activist) Clive Jones be prevented from teaching. But I think that, as it is a legal political party, that should not be a problem.

Rigger : Teaching is riddled with Marxists, yet where are the cries to stop them teaching?

esperanza: They should be allowed to teach as long as their personal views do not compromise their teaching. Bet Lynch: Do you really think it is possible to leave your beliefs at the front door of a school? We can kid ourselves it is possible, but subconsciously and consciously we show our beliefs and our morals allthe time.
