Rehab school slammed for unqualified teachers

Date Posted: 2008-09-12

Nearly 60 students attending Ryukyu Rehabilitation School will have to repeat classes to complete their education, thanks to the school’s use of unqualified teachers not certified to deal with the curriculum.

The Ministry of Health, labor and Welfare has advised the school 58 students must be reeducated in anatomy, rehabilitation, motor skills and recovery subjects taught by non-certified teachers. Most of the 58 had already graduated from the Ryukyu Rehabilitation School or transferred to other schools.

“I was too lenient with teachers,” the chairman of the school admits. “I should look carefully at the teachers,” he says, explaining “I had qualified teachers before, but some left my school to others.” He told Ministry officials he didn’t have enough teachers with medical doctor or university professor credentials, so he used those he could find.

Students were stunned by the news, and both surprised and dismayed by explanations they must return to the school and take classes again. School officials say they’re now lining up qualified instructors for the classes.
