Re: Schools Unable To Employ Staff

They'll hire locals for the year or until this blows over. Or, depending on the country and the quality of the school, TEFLers.

Re: So, if the border isn't open...

For me, Plan B would be to look for a job in my home country since that's the only definite in terms of travel/accessibility at the moment. I don't envy anyone their decisions though. I consider myself to be a fairly ethical person, but at the end of the day I have to look out for myself and my fami...

Re: So, if the border isn't open...

TheHuman is right. Anyone who is blindly trusting their school right now is being naive. I would agree that many schools WANT to bring employees in as usual, keep pay the same, etc., but if enrollment drops precipitously or borders remain closed longer than expected they're going to have no choice b...

Re: Does an Ivy League Master's hold any weight as an IT?

You're not the first person who has said good things about Washington, fine dude. I'll check it out!

Thank you, PsyGuy for clarifying that UT is on the same level as the Ivy and near Ivy schools and that Cornell and Brown are for kids who just couldn't do any better. I'll keep that in mind!

Re: Does an Ivy League Master's hold any weight as an IT?

Are you saying UPenn and Cornell aren't global Ivies? That seems....wrong? My students fight tooth and nail to get into those, as well as Brown, Dartmouth, etc.

Re: Does an Ivy League Master's hold any weight as an IT?

Thanks for the response, fine dude. I already have significant international experience teaching math and CS at the AP and community college level (I already have a M.S. in Math) and have no plans of ever going into leadership. This is purely to satisfy my own intellectual interests and I'm lucky en...

Does an Ivy League Master's hold any weight as an IT?

I'm looking to go back to school for a variety of reasons and I am considering programs (non-education but in my subject area of CS) at 2 of the Ivies and a few more highly ranked state schools. My question is this - Would having, say Cornell or UPenn, be considered a benefit in the international sc...

Re: How competitive would I be?

I would say incredibly competitive, especially if you're actually good at teaching chemistry and calc. Those are hard subjects to find qualified teachers for.

Re: List of closed schools

My school in Karachi is doing the same as Mike's. Moved to distance learning a month ago and teachers were allowed to go back home for the rest of the school year/summer break. It has been working relatively well so far.

Re: China closed

Wow. I suspect we're about to see a LOT of schools closing in the next year.
