In a statement, Robertson contends that his behaviour was influenced by “drug and alcohol induced stupidity” and that Richmond School Board officials allowed him to seek work in another district and told him “keep your nose clean.”|
He resigned from his job and carried on with his teaching career in Vancouver, service he calls “exemplary.”
“The indiscretions in Richmond, to the best of my knowledge, had been dealt with by the (school board), RCMP, and Victoria,” he writes.
Robertson has been teaching at Huijia since 2011.
In announcing Robertson’s resignation, the school noted he had passed a background investigation when he was hired and has no criminal record.
A teacher background survey completed in 2017 found no issues, the school said.
Teacher discipline decisions are posted on the Teachers Regulation Branch website and international regulatory bodies for teachers are notified, according to the B.C. Ministry of Education.
No inquiries about Robertson have been received from China, the ministry said.
Robertson was employed by the Vancouver School Board from 1976 to 2006, when he was investigated for another misconduct allegation. He resigned before he could be dismissed, according to court documents.
The B.C. Teacher Regulation Branch finally stripped Robertson of his teaching credentials last year after one of his victims complained that no action had been taken against him.
“His liaisons were not secret. He used his popularity and position to attract girls, going so far as to have sex with one in his school office,” the hearing panel wrote in its decision. “His conduct was unethical and dishonest by any standard.”
