    This is a really sad story. It is one that should be told to the whole world.

    There is little or nothing that a foreigner can do inside of Korea to fight the system – not if they want to keep their job. But how about adding the sorts of abuses that foreign teachers suffer in Korea to the list of human rights violations on the Wikipedia site.

    Wikipedia mentions things human trafficking, prostitution, discrimination against minorities on their list, but there is yet no mention of the poor treatment of foreign teachers.
