Doesn’t character matter?

teacher who tried to hire a gang leader to assault her principal has been cleared to teach again:

. . . She was also charged with falsifying records and other misconduct.

The Teachers Council has imposed a series of conditions on her returning to teaching and has censured her.

The council said she had had serious health issues and both her parents had recently died. It says there is nothing to suggest her teaching ability is under question.

There could well be a lot more to the story that the report shows.

I hope there is and that is shows that character is taken into account when questioning teaching ability.
