I don't want you, but I hate to lose you (Frank, George, Ella and many others)

There was an amazing story in today's The National that a whanau member alerted me to.

 Schools face hurdles hiring Emiratis

In a nutshell it seems that the local universities have been churning out Emirati teachers that ADEC won't employ because they fail their teacher requirements, among them an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6 or better.

Lordy lord. That seems utterly bizarre and I bet that's not the whole story. But who would know? Rhetorical question number 1.

The solution? Why - form a committee of course.

Meanwhile those poor Emirati teachers have not been able to find jobs in the classroom.

Will anyone's head roll? That's rhetorical question number 2.
