A school with a conscience

The Yeong Gwang Girls High School in South Korea has taken the pledge to help end slavery in the world. Elizabeth Pruitt, who teaches English at the school, read about CNN's Freedom Project and brought the issue to her students.

Pruitt told iReport's Daphne Sashin in May that the issue of modern-day slavery was particularly relevant "for these students, since they are all young women, and so many of the victims of modern-day slavery are women and children."

Have you taken a stand to end slavery? Join the dozens of other CNN iReporters who have taken the pledge.

    These girls are doing a great thing and I commend them for their efforts to end modern-day slavery!

    Being that these girls are South Koreans they are very close to modern-day slavery as the people up in North Korea are slaves to the repressive North Korean government!

    I am an English teacher in South Korea and we always have to deal with North Korea's troublemaking!

    Millions of Koreans are slaves up in North Korea!

    The South Korean people wish for the liberation of the people of North Korea but the North Korean government is too powerful and there is no reason to believe they will be free in the near future!

    Of course, things are balanced out by some great characterisation work and developing relationships and the movie does well to mix the drama and development in amongst the spectacle but it still feels as if perhaps it could have added a little bit more to reinforce the scale of things and to impress on a simplistically entertaining level.
