Welcome to Expacked (Issue #78)

July 1, 2010

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.

Boryeong Mudfest 2010

Just a quick reminder that the 13th Annual Boryeong Mudfest is only a couple of weeks away.  It starts on the 17th of July and continues through to July 25th.  This is a must see event and its one that is extremely popular with native English teachers from around the country.  Have a look at the video above and Click Here to find out more about this event.

Here are the teaching related stories this week:

Feel free to comment on any of these stories and continue to share Expacked with your friends.  Enjoy the read and, of course, have a good laugh at this week’s jokes.

Cheers,

Ken
