The student teacher did the right thing by attempting to dispel rumours by confronting the students. He did it very well too by asking the class if they have any questions. The dismissal based on ethics is BS and everyone knows it. What teacher is not allowed to say anything about themselves or share an experience?

If so, we may as well get robots to start teaching.
