Lone v Secretary of State for Education

Education – Teacher. The Secretary of State for Education's decision to make a prohibition order against the appellant teacher to the effect that he would not be able to teach in any school, sixth form college or similar institution, was not wrong. The Queen's Bench Division held that the gravity of the consequences of the appellant's behaviour towards another teacher had been part of the balancing exercise. It could not outweigh the legitimate public interest in the appropriate case. Consequently, the appellant's appeal against the Secretary of State's decision would be dismissed.
