Teachers abroad: " relieved of a lot of the administration that is normal in the UK system "

Here is an interesting piece about teachers fleeing the bureaucracy and indiscipline of English schools and working abroad.

Key quote:

"The vast majority of schools abroad hire teachers to teach," says Albert Hundspeth, who's been head teacher at British schools in Prague and Cyprus. "You are relieved of a lot of the administration that is normal in the UK system, and plenty of British schools abroad don't do the SATs tests." On the discipline front, because the schools are fee-paying there's a higher chance that the students will be well-motivated."

Imagine it. Teachers being hired to teach.
