Nova Teachers - Date Who You Like

The Osaka Bar Association on Tuesday urged Osaka-based Nova Co foreign language school to lift a ban on foreign teachers dating students and to nullify past dismissals of teachers for breaking the rule. The management of Nova, however, said it "does not plan to remove the ban as it has been set in order to protect both the teachers and students from trouble as they do not know each other's cultures and customs." One case cited was that of an Australian English teacher who was dismissed in April 2001 for dating a student. (Kyodo News)
