PhDs applying for high school teaching jobs as tutoring ban impact continues

The revelation that most of the newly-hired teachers at a high school in China hold PhD degrees has triggered a national debate about the intensely competitive job market and the national obsession with higher academic qualifications.
 

Among the seven candidates for the final round of interviews for the position of biology teacher at the school, four have PhD degrees, said Gou Xiaoxue, a master's degree graduate from Beijing Normal University who was interviewed for the position last month.
 

"The competition is tough," Gou said. "I heard that for the chemistry teacher position, all the candidates are PhD holders."
 

The school, whose name was not revealed, hired four people to teach biology, three of whom have PhD degrees, according to Gou.
 

She added that some former teachers at private tutoring institutions laid off amid the authorities' crackdown on the industry in recent months, which has also increased the number of applicants and competition for teaching roles.
 

The report soon became a top searched news item on Weibo, with 130 million views. More than 14,000 comments were left on the original story post.
 

"I don't think the higher academic degree a person has, the better he teaches," one person wrote. "The important thing is whether these candidates are good at teaching students."
 

"It's hard to believe that they apply for the job because of a love for teaching. I think they are attracted by the salary offered by the school," another user commented.
 

"It's common for top schools in big cities to require job applicants to have higher degrees. I am in Xian [of Shaanxi province] and public primary schools here only hire graduates with bachelor's degrees or above from prestigious universities," another person said.
 

中学教师面试一半是博士

最近,北京师范大学生物学的硕士研究生晓雪接受央视采访时讲了自己刚刚经历过一次教室岗面试,感慨良多!
 

她应聘的深圳最好的四所中学之一,她本来以为自己是北师大的硕士,学历挺高的,但进到面试现场时傻眼了。
 

因为这个生物教师岗位一共七个人入围,其中有四个是博士,三个是硕士。
 

晓雪还听说,化学老师岗位进入面试的人员清一色是博士!
 

另外,除了应届毕业生,今年还有教培机构的很多从业人员也来考体制内的教师岗位!
 

晓雪本来自以为自己是天之骄子,应聘中学老师是大材小用的,结果却面临学历更强的对手,最终人家学校招了三个博士,晓雪落选了!
