Edinburgh college professor Gavin Bradford was deemed “unfit to teach” by Scotland’s General Teaching Council after allegedly asking a female student to shove a pie down his pants. With further investigation, the Council discovered that the 37-year-old performing arts lecturer at Coatbridge College had a history of inappropriate behavior with female students. While working at a college in Ontario, he was said to have asked more than 20 female college students to smear themselves in ketchup and eggs and pour sour milk into their underwear. He allegedly asked girls (some as young as 12) to participate in these food fetish acts late night, via webcam.
That is absolutely disgusting. I’m relieved to hear that he has lost his right to teach. While performance art occasionally includes the smearing of food on the body by one’s self a la Karen Finley, there is absolutely no justification for this kind of lewd violation in the classroom or after hours. I guess that’s why Bradford didn’t show up to his hearing. [BBC]
