A former Dundee primary school deputy headmistress faces being struck off the teaching register.
Linda Ross, 58, of Strangs Ley, Forfar, was dismissed from her post as deputy head teacher of Dundee’s Longhaugh Primary School in October, 2008.
That came after education bosses at Dundee City Council argued that content on the www.lindaross.co.uk website run by her husband Vic brought the profession and local authority into disrepute.
Council officers also claimed that it breached the General Teaching Council for Scotland’s code of conduct.
Mr Ross, 66, set up the site that allegedly contained links to clothing that the council deemed “inappropriate”.
The website was initially established in 2007 to help teachers who faced problems in the classroom, including violent attacks.
Once the website content came to light, the council suspended Mrs Ross before sacking her on October 29, 2008.
She unsuccessfully appealed the decision, before she took the local authority to an employment tribunal claiming unfair dismissal last month.
The tribunal is due to reconvene for a further sitting in January.
Yesterday, the GTC said that Mrs Ross is to appear before its disciplinary subcommittee on February 24.
Mrs Ross was initially suspended from a senior post at Dundee’s Sidlaw View Primary School in 2007 after she and her husband claimed that teachers were being threatened by parents and pupils at the school.
A disciplinary process by the council followed, during which time an inquiry into the allegations found them to be “exaggerated”.
After her suspension, she was then placed at Longhaugh as depute head but the Sidlaw View controversy had barely died down when she was suspended again in June 2008 over the website.
Relations between her and the education department broke down entirely and she was fired for gross misconduct five months later.
