Blair's Government, famous for passing an anti-smacking law (subsequently watered down by Blair's "class enemy" the House of Lords - making it a dead-letter), has finally realised that school teachers restricted by his sickening PC legislation are victims of abuse from children in schools and are leaving the profession in droves.

"A third of teachers in the UK have faced physical aggression from pupils, a survey for the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) suggests.

And more than half have known of colleagues who had left teaching because of poor pupil behaviour.

This week, increased powers to enable teachers to restrain disruptive pupils came into force in England...

This week, teachers have been given extra powers to restrain violent pupils, with new laws coming into effect.

They explicitly state that teachers have the right to physically restrain and remove unruly pupils and impose detention."
