Thousands of South Korean teachers are rallying for new laws to protect them from abusive parents

  • Thousands of South Korean school teachers rallied in Seoul, demanding more legal protection from bullying by parents after the death of a teacher who suffered emotional distress from complaints by allegedly abusive parents.
  • The protesting teachers are calling for changes in current laws, which they claim make it difficult to control classrooms and leave them vulnerable to overbearing parents. South Korean lawmakers are discussing bills that would grant teachers immunity from child abuse claims, but experts fear this could weaken child protection measures.
  • More than 9,000 teachers have been reported for child abuse by parents in the past eight years, and the conservative government recently formed a task force to address this issue. However, the education and justice ministries criticized previous policies that prioritized children's rights, resulting in an increase in unwarranted child abuse reports.
