…This is Silversurfer coming to you from the future, (2017) lol. Yes, I agree with you totally, in nearly all schools i have taught in Taiwan, whether kindy/cram or junior & high schools it’s the same outcome, the kids are totally wild and there’s nothing you are allowed to do to them in stopping them so. One co-teacher even told me, “You see, you as a foreigner are not allowed to touch them, (shake them a little to stop running around for example) only Taiwanese can.” I actually heard this twice over the years. They, (co-teachers) can smack the hell out of them, that is ok, and i have witnessed OFTEN! Dragged across the floor by one arm, (kindy) taken into the toilet area to be smacked the life out of them, (co-teacher knowing there is no camera in the toilet of course.) I saw daily one kid the co-teacher hated with a vengeance, poor boy, any little thing he did wrong was counted as a most serious trouble, he was beaten black & blue, he will grow up with problems for sure. I once told the director, found out she was close friend to that co-teacher, even got me into trouble telling on that co-teacher! All one-sided here, you just have to not complain, if you do, you are trouble, and trouble has to be dealt with quickly and efficiently in Taiwan view.
