    A teacher at my school expressed that 'all brexit voters are idiots'
    Not only was this completely inappropriate in the context of the lesson I was wondering if it was in breach of any UK laws? She didn’t justify the opinion or open it up for discussion.
    Just a point of interest I don’t plan on suing my school. XD

    It's not against the law. It may be a breach of some of the rules the school has for teacher conduct. It's certainly not appropriate or correct behaviour for a teacher. They shouldn't be judging or alienating members of their classroom regardless of their beliefs.
