I read with sadness about the awful killing of teacher Anne Maguire at the hands of an angry student. Although it is a relief to read that this sort of senseless behaviour towards a teacher is very rare, I hope the perpetrator is made an example of.
I also wish to pay tribute to all teachers that have been subject to threats, acts of violence or bullying from their students. Many of us, myself very much included, would take a bullet for our students. It is very sad to hear about what some teachers have had to put up with.
British police have arrested a 15-year-old male pupil after a female teacher was stabbed to death at a Catholic school in a rare attack on educational staff.
Anne Maguire, a 61-year-old Spanish teacher, suffered multiple stab wounds in the Monday incident which was witnessed by other children at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds, northern England.
Prime Minister David Cameron was among those offering their condolences.
