The safety and well-being of the child should be absolutely paramount and nothing else should come in the way of it.
You're missing the point. It is a rare situation, and the main reason a teenager wouldn't tell their parents is not because they'd face abuse but yeah because they'd got a bollocking and all that jazz. And a teacher has no place interfering in that, none whatsoever.
Cases where parents are/would be violent should and are dealt with differently but it is typical of the culture that the previous government set up that people think it's okay and also that they legislate for a rare circumstance and get it to apply across the board.
Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they’ll send you out to protect their gold in wars whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly until they can with a flick of the finger tear a million of you to pieces
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
