The following article was first presented at a forum on Teachers Touching Children at the University of Auckland a number of years ago. It includes substantial discussion of why and how no-touch policies developed in education and a collection of correspondence and references.
For families and employers of teachers it raises interesting questions as to what expectations you should have of teachers, what is appropriate touch and in what circumstances, and what is best for young children.
