A former principal who ignored allegations that his ex-lover was sexually abusing a mentally disabled student at his elementary school had his licence revoked by the Ontario College of Teachers Wednesday.
Jacques Perron was found guilty of professional misconduct earlier this year after the college found he ignored several reports that an employee, allegedly a close friend and a former lover, had abused the student on several occasions at his French-language Catholic school in Kenora, Ont.
On Wednesday, a three-member disciplinary committee opted to take away Perron’s accreditation and bar him from reapplying to the college for at least five years. The lawyer for the college, which oversees teachers in the province, argued that Perron’s wilful ignorance of the abuse makes him an accomplice and revocation is the only appropriate action in the case.
