SK Government breaking up Korean Teachers Union
« on: June 27, 2014, 11:50:36 am »
First off, I don't have an official source.

My CT mentioned to be today that all of the teachers who are members of the Korean Teachers Union will be leaving early. She said they are leaving early to protest the government breaking up the union.

Have not found an official English article yet...

What could this mean? Thoughts?

Edit:
Maybe this is whats going on..., but it's not as recent as something happening today.
These might be the lead up.

"Teachers who are members of the progressive teachers’ group will take an early leave from school on Friday to participate in an anti-government demonstration near Seoul Station, central Seoul. The KTU will also announce a joint-statement denouncing the Park administration in early June."

What you put into Korea, is what you will get out of Korea; it will not spoon feed you.

Leaving early today? As in a strike?

Apparently. I guess our Principal is making a spur of the moment teachers meeting (required) to prevent teachers from leaving.

Kind of like in the last two weeks after exams. Principal announces no teacher should play a movie. The rule is adhered to for the first week. By Wednesday of next week a few rebels start showing movies by Thursday and Friday all the teachers are showing movies. If you make a rule and everyone disagrees with it you can't enforce it.
