South Korean teachers to rally after colleague's death

September 04, 2023

The South Korean teachers union is not involved in organising the demonstrations on Monday, said the group leading the protests, Everyone Together As One. In July, an elementary school teacher was found dead at school after reportedly expressing anxiety over complaints from a parent over a dispute among students. One hundred public school teachers committed suicide in South Korea during the past six years as of June. The education ministry has vowed to prevent incidents of teachers' being punished for legitimate educational activity, and improve communication between teachers and parents. "We will support teachers so that they can focus on education, free of concerns over getting indiscriminate complaints of child abuse."
