Lecturers from all through the globe have condemned Murdoch College’s treatment of a whistleblower who spoke out about worldwide pupil exploitation, saying they're “appalled” at what they see as an “extraordinary” attempt to intimidate him and others into silence, writes Christopher Knaus for The Guardian.
The Australian school is suing Affiliate Professor Gerd Schröder-Turk for criticising its treatment of worldwide school college students all through an episode of the ABC’s 4 Corners programme. Schröder-Turk alleges the faculty retaliated in opposition to him inside days of the programme airing, and he is now attempting to work together Western Australia’s whistleblower protections.
However the school has launched a cross-claim inside the federal courtroom alleging Schröder-Turk’s suggestions damaged its earnings and worldwide pupil enrolments. It's reportedly suing him for tens of thousands and thousands in damages. The school’s actions have prompted withering criticism from a gaggle of 23 lecturers in Australia, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, Switzerland and the USA.
