    Glad to see but I’m afraid his damage has already been done.

    So now those free prison lunches are sounding pretty good.

    He’s the one who embezzled all the NSET salaries? Hang him high!

    I will miss this guy. He obviously made some mistakes but he also took necessary action which made a real difference in the lives of many Korean students by getting serious about beginning to change the culture of bullying in the Korean school system.

    I personally witnessed some of the changes that these policies had on both the teachers’ attitudes and the students’ behavior towards on another. I hope his replacement continues with his plan to rid the Korean school system of bullying and abuse.
