Roundup: Free job ads for school owners • Exam cheats • Hope for Japanese kids

Teaching-English-in-Japan-Education-Teaching-Jobs" Schools looking to hire teachers can now take advantage of free job ads on the jobs section: if they are customers of sister site The ads normally cost ¥35,000 per month. The jobs section has visits from thousands of teachers each week.

An exam cheat apparently used his mobile phone to post English and maths entrance exam questions to the internet asking for answers during the exams: and the questions were answered. Questions from entrance exams at Waseda, Kyoto, Doshisha and Rikkyo universities were posted.

Despite the clear evidence to the contrary (which prompted the president of Harvard University to visit Japan last March to find out what has become of Japan's contribution to American academia), Stephen Hesse is confident about the future for Japanese kids. Apparently, he knows some who went abroad and had good time. Hesse teaches in the Chuo University Law Faculty.
