Change your tone
As an organisation connected with the recruitment of teachers for the Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools (NIS) in Kazakhstan, I am writing to express my disappointment at the tone of the article in last week's issue ("Well, oil be ... Kazakhs turn to the British for overhaul tips", 1 June).
Since working with the NIS, Teachers International Consultancy has found the leaders, staff and recruitment team in Kazakhstan to be nothing but open, honest and exemplary in their development of the educational programme they are undertaking.
The British and expatriate teachers who are already working there have renewed their one-year contracts because of the excellent experience and support that they have received from the Kazakh people and authorities.
