John Simkin Posted May 20, 2005 Share Posted May 20, 2005 Chris Keates, general secretary of the National Association for Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers, has called for members of the far right British National Party to be legally barred from working in schools. Although I hate everything the BNP stands for, I find this suggestion very worrying. First of all, it will not have the desired impact of keeping fascists out of the classroom. They will just leave the BNP before any legislation is introduced. If they get away with banning the BNP they will then go after extremist groups on the left. The problem is that the three main parties are sitting on each other’s laps in the centre, anything outside the mainstream will be seen as extreme.
