In the wake of the dissolution of NOVA on October 26th, G. Communication Co has been doing their best to clean up the mess of Nozomu Sahashi. On November 12th, NOVA schools in Nagoya began reopening (link). The next day, G. Communication Co announced they would be hiring back former teachers, or those who felt compelled to stay (link).
I recently had the opportunity to speak with a few former NOVA teachers in the Kagoshima area. Although the majority of schools remain closed, the branch in Kagoshima is set to reopen very soon; the employees who stayed in Japan included those with families, those receiving financial support from home, and some who just decided to risk everything and work private lessons in the interim.
