English school condemned for limiting teachers to blond, blue eyes.....
According to people related to the school, several kindergartens in Kofu have asked it to send English instructors so their children can get accustomed to "foreigners," attaching such conditions as "blond hair" and "blue eyes."
The school "was aware that it was an old discriminatory idea, but couldn't resist customers' needs,"
one related person said, noting that the school now regrets it.Kyodou February 11
I am ashamed, and I doubt if there was really customer's need. Wasn't it just a preference of the school staff?
Why not employ a brilliant English teacher like Az?
Let's remember Kouf as an uneducated hick county.
Arudou, associate professor at Hokkaido Information University, who is working on human rights for foreign residents in Japan, also filed written requests with the school, kindergartens and the Kofu Regional Legal Affairs to promote human rights.
By the way, I don't like Debito's style, but this time, I must admit he has done a good job.
