Deb-Gupta v The Board of Governors Beech Hill Infant School and Bedfordshire County Council  IT/48188/92 (0 other reports)
In Deb-Gupta v The Board of Governors Beech Hill Infant School and Bedfordshire County Council a Bedford industrial tribunal (Chair: J G Drysdale) rules that an Asian teacher who was unsuccessful in her application for promotion in a predominantly Asian school, despite having greater experience of multi-cultural education and in acting-up in senior positions than the successful white candidate, was unlawfully discriminated against. The tribunal found "grave defects" in the procedure used and dangers of subjectivity in the approach taken which might disadvantage Asian candidates.
