Should private tutors be registered?
The private tuition industry is one of the fastest growing in the world. However in many countries it remains unregulated. By far the majority of tutors appear to be qualified, decent people but there is a gravely dark side to the industry; there have been several incidents in the UK alone where paedophiles have set up as tutors, with no other aim but to abuse the children bought to them by unsuspecting parents. I believe the industry should be regulated. What do you think?
Over here in Australia tutors must have a working with children check to teach privately. This is performed by the police (http://www.activeunlimited.com/wwcc). This is quite a good system although as you can see the requirements vary from state to state which is a bit of a mess.
An easy way for parents to check teachers is to make sure they get a tutor with a PGCE in education (and ask to see it), although this obviously reduces the number of tutors that will be available.
