A crude story on oil-rich Kazakhstan is unfair

1st June 2012 at 01:00

I was sad to see the word "lured" in the article on Kazakhstan. As a Kazakh citizen, I was lucky to communicate with the teachers who have come to the country with full devotion to teaching. Coming to a foreign country is not just about the money. You must be a person of special character and love your profession. Those teachers who are in our country are special, charismatic and devoted. There are lots of aspects to the political situation in Kazakhstan, but why should it have been an issue for the article? Or is it a way to "lure" readers to TES?
