Posters For Waygooks - Robots

Two big issues in the Korean blogosphere of late have been these new English teaching robots and HIV testing requirments for E2 Visa holders.  I think there might be a connection here...


These robots will never work.  A robot cannot hold the attention of or maintain control over a class of 30-40 students.  As for AIDS testing... Koreans are pretty backwards when it comes to sex education and understanding the risks of transmission from HIV/AIDS.  Rather than educating parents, the government is just giving in to parents who insist on native English speakers being tested.

If a native English speaker who was HIV positive was actually a risk simply because they were sharing a classroom with a child, then shouldn't all Korean teachers be tested as well?  If just teaching a child poses a risk of transmission, then Koreans are a threat too.  Parents and Korea in general seems to believe that HIV/AIDS is a foreigner only problem.  That is dangerous thinking and needs to change.

Similar attitude in Japan. Sigh. Every Gaijin I know uses condoms and never pays for it. The locals don't and pay for it in Thailand...
