Now which part of this information is difficult to understand?
Admin should finally admit that the fault lies not IN their foreign teachers (stars), but in their own actions.
Really, GuyinTaiwan! And Tainan's EV scenarios are serious doodoo when compared to other EV's. Students could have built better.
The problem is the head man doesn't get involved when problems arise. He waits and waits, till the problem festers and then he acts.
He could have replaced a certain person when she lost 5 teachers at the end of the first semester, but no.
Remember, contracts are 1 year and she drove away 5 teachers by the end of the first semester then turned around and blamed it on a particular teacher. I met him and listened to his tirade. He didn't seem to be that much of a trouble maker. When the manager loses 5 out of 6 employees, the head man gets rid of the manager, DUH!
The end of the first semester was the time for the head man and the manager to confront the problem face to face, straight on by looking nowhere else but in the mirror! Head man should have dumped her as soon as he found out, but no, he dithered because of town politics. It would have upset mutual friends.
So what does head man do? He waits till the end of the second semester and dumps the recruiter!
He made it known just after the December 1st meeting that all the problems were caused by the recruiter!
Well the second shoe finally fell when he hired a new recruiter from Taipei who hired 4 new teachers who had no government-issued teaching certificates! Public schools require government-issued teacher certificates. Language schools require TESOL certificates. And never the Twain shall meet.
She thought she'd pull a slick one and mixed apples and oranges. The GOV said "Who are you trying to kid?"
So the head man has now ended up worse off with the new recruiter than he was with the old recruiter!
Is it mirror-looking time again, Mr. Head man?
I've worked now for two EV's. What's the quintessential difference between the two?
This Head man just doesn't care. As long as he can find someone to blame, he really doesn't care what happens at EV. He really doesn't and I can say that I know him fairly well.
