Scottish teacher tells students they are worthless, claims sex with their mothers
(NY Daily News) AYRSHIRE, Scotland – A potty mouth Scottish teacher who routinely insulted students by telling them they were “f—ing worthless” and saying he’d had sex with their moms has been fired.
Michael Rankin regularly called pupils at Ardrossan Academy, in Ayrshire, “bastards,” “f—ing idiots” and “s— at football,” reports STV.
The 54-year-old technology educator dubbed one youngster “Shrek” and ordered others to be quiet by saying, “Shut up, you wee a–holes.”
He also told one child, “Every time I shag your mum, she makes me a sandwich — that’s why I’m fat.”
He was hauled this week before a General Teaching Council for Scotland panel over claims he’d used inappropriate language in front of children as young as 13 in 2012 and 2013.
The allegations proved to be true.
The panel also heard that Rankin, from Skelmorlie, told one student: “I need my glasses, I can’t see because of too much w—— — is that why you wear glasses?”
As the class watched a sex scene in the movie “Bend it like Beckham” in which a car bounces up and down, he told another pupil:
“That’s me and your mum in the back.”
And on another occasion, he told a youth: “You can give this present of a mirror to your mum but I already gave her a present last night.”
He also repeatedly called one student “fatty.”
Rankin was struck off the teaching register due to the “seriousness of the conduct,” the GTC ruling said.
