Head accused of 'Islamophobia' wins £400,000 after being forced out by Muslim governors

A head teacher today won more than £400,000 damages for being forced out of her school after being branded a racist. ( WHAT RACE ? )

Erica Connor, 57, who was head of New Monument School, Woking, where 80 per cent of pupils are Muslim, claimed she had been the victim of a campaign of harassment by some of the school governors who accused her of Islamophobia.

Deputy Judge John Leighton Williams QC at the High Court said education officers had been more concerned about complaints to the Commission for Racial Equality than the health of their head teacher.

He said Surrey County Council was negligent in not stepping in to help Ms Connor before she was forced to retire through ill health in December 2006 following a breakdown.


MUSLIMS ARE NOT A RACE OF PEOPLE. This race card issue is getting old.
