This is a very serious issue for ALL of us with grade school children. Especially female children.
Recently, a very nasty reality was bubbled to the surface of TW life.
We lost a darling young woman to the tragedy of suicide. A suicide birthed from the horrors of a rape. A rape committed by a teacher.
Rape, scandal and infidelity have been prevelant in the Student/Teacher relations for generations in TW.
Most go unreported. Those reported are quickly marginalized.
Rules to keep your children safe when seeking 'after school education'
never leave a child alone with a teacher for any length of time.
teach your child to recognize uncomfortable situations and how to react.
seek foreign alternatives. Foreign teachers have never been involved in sexual abuse of children in Taiwan.
research the school and teacher(s) before entrusting your child to a potentially harmful environment.
