MenTeach: One of the occupational hazards of working with children is the possibility of being falsely accused. It was one of three reasons why men don’t stay with or start teaching.
We like to provide resources about ways to prevent or protect against false allegations but what do you do if it does happen? We’ve had several men write us and we’ve seen some men’s career and life destroyed. Here is a website in the United Kingdom of an organization FACTS – Falsely Accused Carers & Teachers that has resources.
Despite the hazards of our job, we still believe teaching is an outstanding profession that makes a big difference in the lives of children.
