Welcome to Expacked (Issue #78)
What a difference a week can make. Last week we were all excited and hopeful about our teams, now it seems that FIFA World Cup fever has left this country. Bugger.
We posted an article a few weeks ago about increased security measures the Government is putting in place at public schools. This is due to the abduction and rape of an 8 year old student from her school. The Government sees this as a growing problem and I have included another press release related to this below.
While it will take time to upgrade security in every school around the country, one small change has already taken place. It seems, from now on, that name tags must be worn by every teacher while within the school grounds.
I would be interested to hear, from our readers, what other security measures their schools and hagwons have implemented in response to the growing public fear.
