"Amongst other things, the Department says South Africans must have a degree in order to teach in China."

When I saw she was 19 I knew there was going to be trouble with not having a degree.

Sad ordeal.

I don't understand why these recruiters aren't being jailed.

Not sure Simon, not an expert on the Chinese justice system. It could be that employing someone illegally is not a jail-able offense whereas violating immigration law is jail-able. Might also be that, unlike the company, she was unable to pay the fine and, therefore, she was detained. Just speculation.

Sad thing is if she had just done a little research, then none of it would have happened.

Did anyone find the mistake in the article?

Also, I saw her name and immediately recollected that niemand means "no one" in German, oh, oh, oh.

Yeah, 19 and no degree, I immediately thought what rioux thought as well.

Also...what nimadecaomei said.

Warm regards,
