As many as 48 PE teachers may have been unlawfully sold by the Department of Education, new figures reveal. Mrs Janine Scott of Leicester told an inquiry "My husband Keith went to school one Wednesday last October in a clean track suit, and simply didn't come back. Then I got a letter from the Local Authority saying he had been sold, and I would receive details of his whereabouts within a week. I never did."
2 RE teachers have also been sold, although this was "a clerical error" according to a DofE report. Parts of one of the mis-sold RE teachers, including his soul, has now been restored to his family.
Post Olympics the selling of PE teachers is likely to be controversial. Some have been bought by industry for manual labour, and G4S is understood to have bought at least 12, and then lost them. "We still have seven of their whistles," a G4 spokesman said. "If family members step forward to identify them, it would help in the teachers' recovery.
A spokesman for the Association of Sports and Physical Education told one reporter: "I don't care if you are a journalist. I don't care if you're Stephen Hawking. Get changed and start running round that field, while we've still got it."
