UK: Teacher suspended for punishing kids who wouldn't pray to Allah

Make that "Allegedly disciplined the duo" according to the Telegraph.

Alison Phillips, head of RE at Cheshire's respected Alsager High School, allegedly disciplined the Year 7 duo claiming they were disrespectful for refusing to kneel down and pray.

After giving the two boys detention the school was believed to have received several complaints from parents about the long-standing teacher.

Today, a school spokesman said she was suspended over the allegations - but also for "ongoing inquiries centred around other practical issues".

The teacher is "liasing with her union."

Here we go. Time to file a grievance.
