LDP's policymaker says noisy teachers protesting license renewals should lose them - MSN-Mainichi Daily News

There is no other profession in the country that has continuing education requirements, not doctors, nurses, engineers, lawyers, nobody. Yet the government wants to make life for teachers even more difficult, muzzle them even further, and inforce the policy line by threatening people's careers.

My fiancée is working as a teacher in junior-high here in Japan, where it's normal for the teachers to stay late until 10 in the evening (or midnight, if you're a new teacher) and be back at work at 7 in the morning. Both her physical and mental health have considerably deteriorated, mostly as she has no time to do the things she used to love to do. A new test on top of everything else is not what the teachers in this country need.

I work one day a week like that, and I know what it's like. Can't even imagine how hard that must be every day. And for all her hard work, she will get the opportunity to prove she's worth her salt every ten years.
