Hot Topic: Pulling a Midnight Run

Everyone's heard of them, some people know someone who's done it, and some have pulled a midnight runner themselves.

While it might seem horrible to leave in the middle of the night, some people have no choice. Maybe their boss hasn't paid them, puts hidden cameras in their apartment and refuses to apologise (happened to a friend of mine), or crosses the line somehow. Perhaps the teacher needs to leave because of an emergency or visa problem.

There are lots of reasons why teachers pull midnight runs. Some of them aren't that good though, such as simply not enjoying teaching or not liking where they live.

What do you think?
Is it ok to pull a midnight runner? Would you or have you ever done it?

Got an idea for a hot topic?
Email me with your hot topic, name, and website (if you have one) and I'll post it ASAP.
