People accused of assault (of any kind) to remain anonymous until proven guilty.

As a teacher myself, I have known many teachers who have been accused of assaulting a child (hitting, swearing at, etc) only for the child to eventually withdraw the accusation.  By this time, the name of the teacher has been tarnished. 


 

Why does this idea matter?

I have know good teachers to leave the profession due to false accusations.  Children are well aware of their rights and when they are not happy with a teacher (for whatever reason) have used the 'assault' card to 'get them back'.
