Will there ever be a day when all teachers here have teacher's licences? It's hard to imagine isn't it. So many transient teachers - teachers who want to try it out for a year, then go back to their homeland. Even more who don't have degrees (or real degrees). And what with the government trying to 'encourage' schools to teach more English. If they persist with all this testing, they will never have enough teachers. Surely the day will come when they realise this and just go back to 'the way it was before'...
"The Brazilians aren't as good as they used to be, or as they are now."
^But how many decent teachers will have left the country by then?
It is such a depressing, amateurish, corrupt, self serving machine that governs these licensing procedures. WHAT a waste of time, money and good will.
