Tainan, Dec. 29 (CNA) A total of 20 current and former employees at two Tainan elementary schools have received reprimands for failing to report the sexual misconduct of a colleague over a period spanning two decades, local authorities said Tuesday.

The sexual misconduct by Chang Po-sheng (張博勝), a recipient of the Tainan City-held Outstanding Teacher Award, began in 2000 but did not come to light until 2020 when he was indicted over a sexual harassment case dating back to 2017, according to the Tainan District Court.

A total of 31 students have been identified as Chang's victims, according to the court.

After conducting its own investigation into the cases, Tainan City Government's Bureau of Education said Tuesday that a total of 17 individuals still employed as educators, including a school principal and homeroom teachers, were aware of Chang's misconduct but failed to notify related authorities in a timely manner and have been punished.    [FULL  STORY]
