How many more pervert teachers in our schools? Education department admits 'handful' of staff convicted of viewing child porn have escaped ban

More paedophiles have been cleared to work in classrooms by the Department for Education, it emerged yesterday.

Teachers convicted or cautioned for viewing child porn have been given permission to continue with their careers by senior officials.

It means thousands of children could be coming into contact with individuals with criminal records for the offence.

A DfE source confirmed the potential threat in schools the day after married father-of-four Geoffrey Bettley was revealed to have escaped a ban despite downloading almost 200 sickening images.
