It was clear to me

It was clear to me

Dave is absolutely right (Get with the program, Ajarn Postbox 6th August) The writing has been on the wall for non-degreed teachers since at least 2006. Why on earth couldn't you guys see it coming? I certainly could.

I knew that even if I wanted to spend a forseeable chunk of my future at the mercy of unscrupulous employers, drifting from one 30K job to another, and teaching English to a nationality that isn't the slightest bit interested in a country where I have no rights whatsoever, I would have to go home and drop thousands and thousands of pounds on a university education. And probably have to sleep on my Auntie Doreen's sofa as well.

It all made perfect sense to me.
