2nd Quest teacher admits to sex with student
Another teacher who was involved in the defunct Quest outdoor program at a Vancouver high school has admitted to having a sexual relationship with a student, according to the B.C. College of Teachers.
Dean Hull, 61, was a teacher in the outdoor education program with Tom Ellison, the Quest teacher convicted in 2006 of five counts of sexual misconduct involving female students in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Ellison was sentenced to two years less a day under house arrest.
An undated statement recently published on the website of the B.C. College of Teachers said Hull signed an agreement with the college admitting professional misconduct.
Hull acknowledged in the agreement that he had sex with a Grade 11 student back in the 1980s when he was a teacher at Prince of Wales Secondary School in Vancouver.
Hull engaged in a relationship with a student that progressed to sexual intercourse and a common-law relationship that lasted for 10 years, the statement said.
The college said Hull's teaching permit, which had already expired, would not be reissued.
Police have said the investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by the teachers in the Quest program is closed and that Hull's admission will not lead to any charges.
The Vancouver School Board has previously stated that a third Quest teacher, Stan Callegari, was also under investigation for professional misconduct.
