Tarred With the Same Brush?

The Daily Telegraph had this to say about the arrest of the suspected paedophile Christopher Neil:

According to Rosalind Prober of Beyond Boarders, a Canadian Organisation that combats child sex tourism, many offenders use teaching as a cover for their activities.

"The children are sitting ducks. This is their teacher. This is someone you trust and tells you what to do," she said.

"You very quickly get trapped. There is such a level of control and power by a teacher. It’s multiplied when it comes to a foreign teacher."

She published a conversation conducted on the internet by two Western teachers in the region.

"I am having a wonderful time with them sexually. Some of them are very interesting. There is never a dull moment," wrote one of them. "Last night, four boys spent the night and I like all four of them."

What a great advert for TEFL.

If this results in more stringent checks on potential EFL teachers, than it can only be a force for good. The less pervs and weirdoes we have to work with, the better.

I totally agree Sandy. I've a feeling you've exposed some similar scandal quite recently on your blog.
I personally would string the b*gger up by the balls if he is indeed found guilty.
Looks like "certificates of good conduct" should be mandatory for TEFL.
In China they would probably shoot him. China apparently execute more people than the rest of the word combined.
