Foreign hagwon instructor qualification improvement training by Dongnae education support officeThis seems like another sex crime prevention lecture for foreign teachers (after one was reported on in Asan in October).
[Busan] On the morning of the 3rd, the Dongnae Education Support office held training for around 200 area foreign hagwon instructors in Nammun Elementary School’s AV room to improve the responsibility of foreign instructors.
That day the training for foreign hagwon instructors, whose numbers are growing day by day for the vitalization of English education, was to help them understand our country’s education system and lifelong education system, to show the foreign teachers the dos and don’ts of hagwons, to [help them] understand immigration law and to provide education related to child and youth sexual protection laws.
Following cases of threats to the safety of hagwon students such as the employment of unqualified instructors and the increase in sex crimes by foreign instructors, precautionary measures were prepared through this foreign hagwon teacher training, which is also a good opportunity to induce sound management of hagwons and attempt to improve the qualifications of foreign hagwon instructors.
Anyone interested in how it was determined that there has been an increase in sex crimes by foreign instructors can email reporter Gang Jae-sun here to ask. The currently known stats can be found here.
