"JALT is not a Democracy"

It seems that the abrupt dismissals at The Language Teacher were a result of protests by the editors over planned cutbacks. JALT's financial situation is reportedly such that a plan was announced to reduce the number of issues or even replace it with an online newsletter. Perhaps in an effort to reverse declining membership, it also seems that only contributions from paid-up JALT members would be published. With a General Meeting coming up in Tokyo, details should be made public soon on the JALT web site, but as yet there has been no clarification. The above quote has been credited to JALT president Thom Simmons.
