The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Native English Teachers to Undergo Evaluation

with one comment

I’m not so sure about this.

I think any instructor (both native and Korean) should always be evaluated but not issuing a new E-2 visa in the future seems a little over the line for not receiving a favourable ‘evaluation’.  From my daily work, I know that there are a lot of shitty teachers out there that should be banished from this country altogether.  However, at the same time, I know that a lot of these Korean co-teachers and admin have chips on their shoulders as well who would go as far as giving a bad evaluation to an average (or even good) instructor.

It’s definitely a dangerous line to cross.  Also, an instructor who is bad at one school may be a decent instructor somewhere else (perhaps a hagwon) where the program is more or less challenging to teach.  It takes time to be a good instructor (regardless of initial background) and the term ‘good’ can be very subjective.

Having said that, the above is in regards to purely teaching performance.  If there’s documented evidence that the instructor continually comes in late, is absent from classes, or has done something illegal, then by all means, screw the second chance and ban them from getting a visa forever.

It’s a step in the right direction but I’m very curious about what exactly this evaluation entails.
