Chemistry teacher struck off for plans to commit terrorism

The Telegraph is reporting that a chemistry teacher who plotted to commit mass murder with ISIS in Syria has been banned from Britain’s classrooms for life. 

Jamshed Javeed, 31, was among a group of young Muslim men from Manchester who became radicalised and determined to join the terrorist group in the civil war-ravaged state.

Javeed, who befriended former Guantanamo suspect Moazzam Begg in maximum security Belmarsh Prison, quit his job teaching secondary school children to fight Jihad.

But the Bolton teacher was stopped from travelling by his wife, who hid the clothes he had prepared, along with his passport.

He was jailed for six years last March and has now been banned from the teaching profession following a hearing in Coventry…

National College for Teaching and Leadership Chair Tony Woodward said: …

“The panel has had particular regard to the fact that teachers are role models, and can have significant influence over children and young people.

“In light of this, the panel considers that should Mr Javeed be allowed to teach in the future, he would present an unacceptable risk of harm to pupils.

“It would also fundamentally undermine public confidence in the profession for a person convicted of such a serious offence to be allowed to teach, and would wholly fail to declare and uphold proper standards for teachers.”…
