77. Unfortunately, they are not made up scenarios.

 

Except in as much as the scenario is a composite of many.

And anyhoo, it is also an unfortunate fact of life, that for many reasons, victims of abuse either return to their abusers at the first opportunity, or enter into new relationships with people who are just as abusive as their previous partners.

And all that said, I'll chew on dingleberries, before allowing that that is a valid reason for summary dismissal. However, I would allow that it is potential reason for a thorough INDEPENDENT evaluation of both parties. A victim who has a victim's mindset is highly unlikely to make a good teacher, and is all to likely to be victimised by their students as well as future partners. They should be gently encouraged, AND given every possible assistance to find employment elsewhere.

On the other side of the coin, an abuser who can (or will) not be disabused of the idea that they have a right to OWN another human being has absolutely NO PLACE IN A FREE SOCIETY. Give them a good solid taste of what it's like to have every last detail of their life dictated by others, and if they can't learn, let them die as they would have others live. NOT FREE.
