Re: Roger Martin - trial

There wouldn't be all the historical cases there are today if there had been a whistleblowing policy and inappropriate behaviour properly dealt with. If you had not been moved on with a good reference by Newsome, would you have had a long career in teaching? Would you still retain your status as a ...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

I found this site via a search for information about the accusations against the unfortunate Roger Martin. I have held back from involving myself in the discussion until now, despite being deeply saddened at the progress of Roger Martin’s case, and deeply angered both by much that has been said abou...
