Garner v General Teaching Council for Scotland

Teaching – Professional competence. Court of Session: Refusing a teacher's appeal against a decision of the General Teaching Council for Scotland's Disciplinary Panel, finding that she had fallen short of the standards expected of a registered teacher, was unfit to teach, and that her name should be removed from the Register of Teachers, the court rejected all the appellant's grounds of appeal, including contentions that the panel failed to explain the reasoning behind their findings, failed to deal with the evidence properly, giving a decision which did not rest on a reasonable foundation, and failed to record the evidence properly, demonstrating bias or apparent bias and/or a failure to discharge their duty to consider all the evidence.
