https://community.tes.com/threads/an-epidemic-of-allegations.760421/ Think again. If you start teaching, any student can and will make allegations against you. This means that you will not know what the allegations are for months, will be suspended, could be interviewed by the police, will have a black mark against your name for your entire career, may have to state the nature of your 'crime' on every job application form you fill in until you retire, could have a breakdown as a result and will have to try and prove your innocence in almost impossible circumstances. If you return to school, you will have to carry on teaching your accuser, as if nothing had happened. They will get no reprimand or sanction of any kind. Think very carefully before becoming a teacher. Can you handle the stress and stigma of being accused by a child of something inappropriate, just because they didn't like you putting them into a detention for not doing homework?
