In an article that said roughly half of SMOE public school teachers weren't renewing their contracts:
Lee Young-chan, an education Ministry official in charge of native teachers said it was not necessary to renew every contract. ``They are neither regular teachers nor lecturers who can conduct classes independently. They are `assistant teachers,' hence their teaching experience doesn't matter much,'' he said. ``Rather, it's better for students to have more new teachers so that they can meet various kinds of foreigners,'' he added.
I think it will be blog policy to post this once a month just so readers know exactly where you stand when the goddamn Ministry of Education official in charge of native teachers says you're fucking worthless.
