Foreign University Teacher Doesn't Get Contract Renewed-for Good Reason?

Foreign Professors in Korea: Watch what you say on Social Media

An interesting article from the Korea Herald about a foreign teacher at Ewha Womans University who didn't get her contract renewed and took it to the next level. She lost, and I think for quite good reason.

The moral of this story? Watch what you do on social media. Anecdotally, one of my coworkers at my previous uni also didn't get his contract renewed and the rumor mill had it that it was because of bad stuff he posted on social media about his students. Be careful!
