Re: Can I force Majeure?

Yip, Wuhan Dave is talking absolute gollocks. Contracts are written by the employer first and foremost for the protection of the employer. I have never seen an international school contract that offers reciprocal rights that allow employees to declare “force majeure”, and I’ve seen and written a lot...

Re: Can I force Majeure?

This is a discussion board for "Educators" Sure you're in the right place, Dave? "Force Majeure" is a contractual clause that outlines the existence of certain conditions because of which an employer may be able to forego contractual obligations. Usually, the clause indicates examples of circumstanc...

Re: Has anyone suspected that a boss or colleague lied about

You do work yourself up into a lather, Grumbler. I wonder why. Who are you to set yourself up as the arbiter in determining a hierarchy of crimes on boards like this? When Dave poses as an expert on all things in international education and bullies and belittles others who disagree with him – and me...

Re: Best Job Fair to Land a Tier 1 School

Grum, Grum, Grum, the most important decision a school leader will take is in the hiring of personnel. If I choose to hire face-to-face because I believe that doing so helps me to get the best possible teachers in front of students, then that is my prerogative. Back in the day, before the advent of ...

Re: Has anyone suspected that a boss or colleague lied about

Grumbler, you do seem to get a frisson out of your self-selection as the adult in the room on this board. As it happens, your opinion of whether I write or what I write is of no moment to me. Now for the matter in hand. I have long taken exception to PsyGuy’s contemptuous, bullying ways, especially ...

Re: Best Job Fair to Land a Tier 1 School

Some of you seem to have very different ideas of fun to my own. Schlepping through airports, sitting on a long flight next to someone I’ve never met and never wanted to meet and being in a box in a hotel for 12 hours a day are all painful to me. I’d much rather be with my family than spend time at r...

"Especially at this fair (SG), which consists of a trivial number of offers and appointments being made.

Re: Most in-demand subjects for international schools?

Please pay no attention to the drivel that Dave has written in his list of supposed difficult to fill positions. You need to know that he has never sat on the administrator side of a table – neither in a school nor in a recruitment fair. Where he isn’t gratuitously offensive and ignorant (as in his ...

Re: Are there any ex-teachers on this board?

Dave, you do talk such cobblers. No Top Tier school would hire a teacher who's had ten successive 2-year contracts. The only reason I can imagine you'd write such fatuous tripe is that you're looking at your own track record and sending up a silent prayer that someone, somewhere will find your resum...
