Teacher sacked after sharing marriage beliefs during staff training

May 25, 2023 by

from The Christian Institute:

A teacher has been dismissed from The Bishop of Llandaff Church in Wales School, in Cardiff, after sharing his beliefs on marriage at a staff training seminar.

During a question and answer session, Ben Dybowski asked if his beliefs – that marriage is between a man and a woman and that life begins at conception – were considered discriminatory.

Despite being told that it was a “safe space and encouraged to speak freely”, he was sacked the following day.

‘Attack on Christianity’

Mr Dybowski called his dismissal an attack on Christianity and “an affront to freedom of speech and freedom of thought”.

He said he never discussed his views with pupils and was always respectful of those with different opinions.

His case has been referred to the Education Workforce Council, which regulates teachers in Wales, but he fears that it may end his teaching career.
