Teachers defy order on excluded pupil

    Teachers have voted to refuse to teach a 15-year-old boy who was
    expelled from school, despite an independent appeal panel ordering
    them to take him back.

    The Nasuwt members, who work at Hurst Community College in
    Hampshire, argue that the pupil is unpredictable and they are
    concerned about their safety.

    The boy, who has an attention deficit disorder, was permanently
    excluded before Christmas. He admitted hitting a teaching assistant
    on the bottom with a ruler but denied threatening her with a
    sharpened file, insisting it was a joke.
