Well, if you look up ESL teaching in Indonesian there's a lot of talk about these new laws on all the forums. Here's a good one that discusses it: http://www.livinginindonesiaforum.org/s ... w-Teachers
And here's a blog entry that also discusses it.http://gjismyp.wordpress.com/2012/02/17 ... reactions/
The law isn't new, and was passed in 2009, but they're only trying to enforce it now. From what I've read, It sounds like the government is trying to take this legislation seriously, but they probably wont. So now my main concern is if I do accept a job there will I be accepting it illegally. If I did, that would be kind of risky.
I've noticed that there are still many job ads on eslcafe that are not obeying these new laws (EnglishFirst specifically), and there are some that are (FirstStreet specifically).
I think I will apply for some of the positions and see what they have to say.. I think that sounds like the smartest course of action.
