Martin Coulter in the Evening Standard, “. . . A Muslim teaching assistant who objected to 11-year-olds being shown graphic footage of 9/11 was unfairly sacked, a court ruled. Suriyah Bi, 25, was dismissed from the Heartlands Academy, in Birmingham, in 2015 after raising concerns about a year seven class with special needs being shown YouTube clips of the atrocity. After the teacher played graphic footage – which came with a warning saying it was not suitable for under 18s – of people jumping to their deaths from the upper floors of the World Trade Centre, Ms Bi raised the issue with senior staff and was sacked the same day, the Guardian reported. The school initially offered Ms Bi £11,000 in compensation for loss of earnings but she rejected the offer which led to an employment tribunal. According to the Guardian, a safeguarding checklist written three days after her dismissal admits that the video should not have been shown in class.” click here
