History teacher dismissed for sexual relationship with teenage students
A history teacher was fired from her school in Birmingham, UK after officials learned she had entered into a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student.
According to the Daily Mail, 31-year-old history teacher Gemma Beckett was fired this week for having sexual relations with the 18-year-old student at John Henry Newman Catholic College.
A malpractice panel heard that Beckett met the student back in 2016 when she enrolled as a 13th grade student at the school.
Beckett and the teenage girl whose mother had just died began a “mutual romantic relationship” later that year.

According to The Sun, Beckett did not attend the misconduct hearing, but instead admitted the allegations against her in a signed response.
Beckett admitted that her behavior was “unacceptable” and “could discredit the profession”.
An investigation was opened in 2019 when the school was made aware of their relationship.

According to the Inappropriate Sexual Relationship Report, history teacher Beckett “has not been within reasonable professional boundaries and / or has been in an inappropriate relationship with Student A since approximately December 2016”.
Sarah Buxcey, acting on behalf of the Education Secretary, has banished Beckett from the classroom. However, she is free to appeal and may be reinstated in five years.
“Your dishonest behavior was effectively an act of omission / distraction, and the sexual misconduct was in an adult, albeit one who was a student (or had recently been a student). Those factors only softened the seriousness to a level where it didn’t need to be classified as “serious”, “Buxcey said in a statement.
The ban follows the conviction of teacher Kandice Barber, who was on trial for sneaking an underage student into a field where they had a tryst.

Unlike Barber, history teacher Beckett was not accused of any crimes related to her sexual relationship with the 18-year-old student.
According to The Telegraph, Barber, of Wendover, Buckinghamshire, was found guilty and said he could be jailed for five years after trying again to induce or encourage sexual activity in a child. She was acquitted on two other counts.
Barber’s husband raged that the verdict was “a joke” as announced.
Barber is due to be tried on February 15 in Aylesbury Crown Court.
Barber was convicted in September for sending the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, topless pictures of himself on Snapchat between September and October 2018
