English Teachers In For Repairs?

Education Minister Atsuko Toyama is to propose a five-year retraining plan for the nation's 60,000 public junior and senior high school English teachers. Under the plan, teachers would undergo a two-week retraining program, and ALTs would be given teacher's status. The government currently offers English retraining in Japan to 2,000 teachers and overseas retraining to 150 teachers each year.
