Response to Part 2
It's hard to argue with any of his observations. Our universities and colleges give out crap education that's for sure.
Unfortunately the only solution is to bring in more expats because too many of the local faculty unfortunately spend too much time drinking at the club or attending to family matters rather than focus on their teaching.
Naturally the only expats who bother to apply for the positions open these days are from Nigeria, India, Sri Lanka or Bangladesh. That says something about the salaries that are offered to the expats.
But if the universities offered competitive salaries to bring in truly qualified people from overseas then the local faculty would raise a big stink and eventually defeat the initiative.
So is there any way out.
