Turkey: A Teacher’s Right?
In Turkey, students are not allowed to record and distribute video of their teachers, even if they are being beaten and abused by them. One Turkish student learned this the hard way. A ninth grade student was recently expelled from school after he recorded his English teacher in class. The teacher was allegedly beating and swearing at her students. In retaliation the student posted the recording on the Internet. But in the end, the English teacher was found not guilty. As reported in the Turkish Daily News, “The teacher isn't found guilty for bashing and beating the students. However, the students are found guilty when they record the teacher on video to uncover her manners”
