Teacher recruitment getting tougher

With the new regulations in place it is harder than ever to find good teachers. Those who are experienced and culturally aware are having to leave as they don't have degrees/diplomas in education and they have exhausted their temporary teaching permit numbers.

Unfortunately that means having to hire the inexperienced or basically any other white face despite their downfalls. Krusapa needs to assess foreign teachers individually regarding teacher licences and increase salaries extensively if they really want the educated and passionate in their schools.
