Pete retweeted this earlier. The only reason I bring it up is that the chap in the photo used to be a friend of my wife and her brother. They're not in contact with him any more.
One former pupil, Kieran Owens, said: “I recall seeing fellow classmates, for the slightest transgression, being flung across the room, punched or having themselves pulled up out of their seats by the hair of their sideburns.”
Mark Collins, who attended the school between 1980 and 1989, said: “It sounds such a cliche to have a Nazi as a teacher. He was a very unpleasant person. I wasn’t particularly good at French. My abiding memory is of standing at the front of the class and removing every item of clothing that I couldn’t name.”
An anonymous former student said he was also forced to strip off in front of his class because he did not know the French word for certain items of clothing.
Another testified: “He’d grab my hair and rub my nose in my copybook roaring, ‘can you not see your stupid mistakes?’ He then repeated the hair-grabbing and nose-rubbing on the blackboard. All in front of my peers.”
One drew attention to how Feutren was often feted in school publications as a “legend” and a great teacher. The anonymous pupil responded: “Feutren, by the way, was by no means the only teacher who inflicted casual, arbitrary cruelties and insults on pupils at the time, but he was the most insidious of them, in reality a million cold-blooded miles from the person previously described in breathless encomiums by former colleagues.
“What is not often remarked upon, when dealing with dramatic individual cases, is how the toleration of unacceptable behaviour in one person rapidly infects the entire culture of an organisation.”
This was fairly standard with some teachers in my secondary school, fwiw. You didn't need to be an actual nazi to be violent with kidsI recall seeing fellow classmates, for the slightest transgression, being flung across the room, punched or having themselves pulled up out of their seats by the hair of their sideburns
Louis Feutren taught French at St Conleth’s College in Ballsbridge for almost 30 years, during which he physically assaulted pupilswww.irishtimes.com
This is also in the DFW movie with Jason Segel - "Just be a good guy"caitlin moran put it in a similar way; you can distil it all down to just 'don't be a dick'. you don't have to worry about being racist or transphobic or whatever, if how you behave is just being decent to people.
