More news on English language school NOVA. None of it good, I'm afraid. Japan Times articles...
Is it all over for Nova?
Advice for teachers
But perhaps most interesting was a personal letter sent to Trans-Pacific Radio from a NOVA teacher who very recently arrived in Japan. She was brought over less than a month ago, and now faces a financially uncertain future (without steady monthly payments and a guaranteed flight back home).
This brought to light the reality that NOVA is still actively recruiting teachers abroad. They can't pay them on time, they're closing 200 schools, and they're still recruiting. Although I haven't been able to find any postings on Craigslist worldwide, there are a few recently added promotions on SEEK, an Australian job website; this did not go unnoticed in New Zealand as well.
Anyone back in the states currently being interviewed by NOVA? What are they saying?
