Judicial review: Secretary of state should have intervened in school's dismissal procedure

This report relates to 1 case(s)

    R v Secretary of State for Education, ex parte Prior [1994] ICR 877 HC (0 other reports)

The dismissal of a teacher in a grant-maintained school was invalid and of no legal effect because the dismissal procedure adopted by the governing body of the school was outside its powers. Therefore the High Court in R v Secretary of State for Education ex parte Prior quashes the Secretary of State's decision not to use his statutory powers of intervention in respect of those procedures.
