London, Oct 8 :
A British teacher has been banned from teaching for five years for sending her bare-breasted pictures to a 16-year-old student.
Linda Harvey, 43, a high school teacher, contacted the student on Facebook after he left Park High School in Lancashire.
They exchanged phone numbers and sent each other personal messages and pictures.
Later, Linda was asked to report to the school for sending a picture of herself naked from the neck down.
A conduct panel found her actions to be “conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute,” Daily Mail reported.
She was forced to quit her 10-year-old career at the school.
The panel recommended that she be banned from teaching and not be allowed to appeal the ban before September 2019.
