Update 9/19: Foreign Teachers Dudded in Japan

NOVA is on the decline. They already had to sell 170,000 new shares last month to cover expenses. I'm going to have to side with TPR's opinion on this one and come right out and say it: get out now. Find another job in Japan while you still can. 618 branch schools, with an average of two foreign teachers...? You do the math. Either way, it's enough to say a large group will be entering the job market en masse if this pattern continues.
