    @Jeff: Yeah I suppose but not all foreigners here are qualified. I mean some don't have university degrees. So what do you expect?

    I would expect that a language center would not hire unqualified teachers at all, rather than at such a low rate. Doing so is very unprofessional and will ensure that qualified teachers will never work for your company, as they do not want to be undercut by less qualified teachers.

    Some of the best ESL teachers do not have university degrees, and I've met very few qualified ESL teachers with a university degree that is actually relevant to what they do (such as an education degree or ESL degree). And anyone who DOES have a degree probably remembers, less than fondly, the brutal sodomy they received at the bookstore for overpriced textbooks required for their university classes, published by those bastards at Houghton Mifflin. But, hey, I'll bet the presence of a foreign publisher in means someone's already done all my lesson plans for me. Woo hoo! Maybe I can show up baked.

    BTW, I'm willing to bet the qualifications you are vaguely alluding to have far more to do with skin color and nationality than educational achievements.

    If you think our school hire foreign teachers depends on race/skin color, then you are the racist one! All the foreign teachers right now who are teaching for us now are highly educated and qualified. And they are from different countries/different races. They teach because they enjoy the experiences and they love working with kids.

    NO U

    Jeff said your rates are low. Your excuse was that not everyone is qualified, implying that you're paying the nominal rates to the unqualified teachers and optimal rates to the qualified ones. Now you're saying all your teachers are qualified. Either you were bullshitting Jeff, or my comment about race and nationality being qualifiers were not off-target.

    Observing the widespread racial prejudice and superficiality in the Chinese ESL industry and alluding to my acknowledgement of such unfortunate facts does not make me racist, but quite the opposite, as such was a profound discouragement to my participation in the industry.

    You just missed your "But we have black teachers!" opportunity. Tsk tsk.

    In Kitty's place, one might also wonder if you had any studies or statistics to reinforce your claims of the widespread racial prejudice and superficiality, because we wouldn't want to be an armchair sociologist about this kind of thing, right? Or were you perhaps 'observing' something in a way that looks suspiciously like 'commenting based on subjective experience' to everyone else?

    Look, this is not my company okay? I'm just passing the MSGs here for the headmaster. If you don't like the facts here, just leave it alone. Job is job, foreigners earn much more than Chinese teachers, so be happy with what schools give to you. Otherwise, get a decent job back in your country.
