Common causes for suspension or revocation of teachers’ licenses
Posted on Thursday, September 19th, 2013
Professional practitioners, like teachers, are guided by ethical standards to prevent them from abusing, mistreating, or taking advantage of the people they interact with; however if these ethical rules are violated, penalties are imposed to them, sometimes resulting in the suspension or revocation of a license.
Teachers’ licenses may be subjected to suspension or revocation for many reasons. Among these, some common ones include:
- Abusing or harassing students
- Accepting bribes in any form
- Having an inappropriate relationship with a student
- Illegally acquiring properties owned by the school also endanger their license.
