The school is grand. And pronouns are the reason the world has gone mad? Seriously?

As I said, regardless of the initial decision, Burke can have no complaints about being where he is.

I think his stance was absolutely ridiculous.

Yeah this. The unraveling of this case has shown this fella to have significant issues. It is far from over too.

What did this lad actually do? Havent been following it at all tbh.

A pupil wanted to use different pronouns. Teacher said no as it was against his religion as a Christian. They suspended him and barred him from school. He turned up to work wanting to continue teaching so they did the completely proportionate non-hysterical thing and put him in prison.

Who'd want to be a teacher now

Incorrect about ten times over. Back to school for you.

He was sent to prison for contempt of court because he turned up at work, breaking a restraining order (!) that was placed on him for refusing to comply with the child's new pronouns.

This week it looks like he was going to be granted an injunction against disciplinary action from the school but it fell through because he wouldn't accept the restraining order.


If I've missed anything feel free to fill in the blanks.

Again, incorrect. It's a big fat F for you.

Willing to be corrected if any of that is wrong.

It's already been done. Failing reading as well as history.

He was put on paid leave because he harassed the principal at a school function and then chased her around the school.

She subsequently left and returned to Cork where she was from.
The new principal didn't take any sh1t from him

Anyway, I expect an appeal within 10 school days and the BOM will be in trouble due to proper procedure not being followed.

In what way was proper procedure not followed?

There a number of steps that should be followed when dealing with staff issues - the big issue for him is that he was in prison when he should have been available to engage with disciplinary process.

The Burkes tore the arse out of it

https://www.irishtimes.com/crime-law/courts/2023/01/17/enoch-burke-opposes-schools-nefarious-move-to-fine-him-over-contempt-orders/

Teacher Enoch Burke will only get an injunction preventing a school going ahead with a disciplinary hearing against him on Thursday if he agrees to stay away from the school in compliance with court orders, a High Court judge has ruled.
Mr Justice Conor Dignam has listed the matter before him on Wednesday morning to see if Mr Burke will comply.*
The judge ruled on Tuesday that Mr Burke had made out a strong case for injunctions likely to succeed at trial arising from aspects of the conduct of Wilsonís Hospital School in the disciplinary process to date.
However, while Mr Burke satisfied the first test for an injunction, in that he had made out a strong case, the balance of justice was tipped in favour of refusing the injunction by his stated intention to continue to breach the orders to stay away from the school, the judge said.

https://www.irishtimes.com/ireland/education/2023/01/22/concern-among-teachers-unions-over-handling-of-enoch-burkes-dismissal/

The handling of the Enoch Burke case has caused some concern with teacher unions over aspects of how the case was managed and the grounds on which he was dismissed.
