It's terrible to watch a former great empire imploding. A nation, once the leader of the English-speaking world, now is the embarrassment of the English-speaking world.
| The sex pests aged 4 getting kicked out of school |
CHILDREN as young as FOUR are being kicked out of school for sexual misconduct, shocking figures reveal today.
They are among nearly 15,000 youngsters expelled or suspended for sex offences — including assaults on teachers — in the past five years.
Alarmingly, more than 1,100 were primary school kids, some in reception class.
Schools in Dorset, Yorkshire, Wiltshire and the West Midlands have all barred boys aged just four.
In East Sussex, two five-year-old boys were sent home after separate incidents of sex assaults on other pupils.
A five-year-old GIRL in Birmingham was also barred over sexual misbehaviour.
And in Westminster, London, a Year 2 boy — aged six or seven — was expelled for a sex attack on a child.
The Sun uncovered the toll after 148 of the 174 local education authorities in England and Wales answered a Freedom of Information request.
They revealed 14,754 children had been barred for sexual misconduct between September 2006 and July 2011 — with 1,123 at primary school.
Offences included sexual abuse, assault, harassment, and lewd behaviour.
Kent topped the list with 705 children expelled or suspended. Birmingham was second with 582, followed by Essex with 451.
Offences in Co Durham included indecent exposure and possessing sexual material. And Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, revealed a boy of ten was suspended for inappropriately touching four pupils.
Also in Wales, a 13-year-old boy in Denbighshire was suspended for pulling down another boy’s trousers.
In Westminster a boy in Year 9 was expelled for a sex assault on a female member of staff and a girl kicked out of the same school for a sex attack on another pupil.
Miranda Suit, of child protection charity SaferMedia, blamed the “pervasive menace” of internet porn.
She said: “These actions, such as inappropriate touching, are fast becoming ‘normal’ for children exposed to explicit content online.”
Nick Seaton, of the Campaign for Real Education, said the figures were down to sex education being taught to pupils at too young an age.
