Nước phát triển có khác

hàng ngàn giáo viên ở hàn quốc biểu tình từ tháng 7 vì phụ huynh học sinh đòi hỏi nhiều quá, giáo viên giờ không làm việc được...

Tens of thousands of teachers across South Korea have protested (biểu tinhg) in the streets since July amid worsening complaints (phàn nàn) over student misbehavior (hành vi sai trái) and harassment (quấy rối) by parents.

On Saturday, a large protest was held near the National Assembly (quốc hội) in Seoul, estimated by the local police at 100,000 people. On Monday, tens of thousands of teachers nationwide took a coordinated leave of absence (phối hợp nghỉ phép) and held rallies nationwide, according to organizers — an unusual tactic (chiến thuật) used to sidestep the law (lách luật) that makes it illegal for them to strike (đánh đập) in South Korea.

On Monday, when teachers also mourned the suicide (tự sát) of a teacher who claimed to have suffered at the hands of abusive (lạm dụng) parents, some elementary schools canceled classes, according to the Education Ministry — a rare occurrence.

In a country known for its fiercely competitive (cạnh tranh gay gắt) schools and the weight that society places on education, students and parents are not the only parties under immense stress. Teachers say that they often face pressure from parents who make excessive or impossible demands of them, including favoritism (sự thiên vị) for their children.

...One of teachers’ central demands includes revising an ambiguous clause (sửa đổi một điều khoản mơ hồ) in the country’s Child Welfare Act meant to prohibit child abuse (bạo hành trẻ em). Teachers say that the ambiguity allows parents to file — or threaten to file — child abuse charges against teachers who take reasonable disciplinary action against student misbehavior. Even if a teacher is falsely accused, they could be suspended from their job and left alone to defend themselves in court, teachers and education experts say.
