Korea to expel teachers

I just read in the paper that Korean authorities are rounding up English teachers in private schools who do not have legitimate teaching credentials. I do not know what other misdemeanours these teachers are guilty of, but in my experience having a language teaching certificate is usually irrelevant to most language teaching situations. Of far more importance is being a native speaker, being literate in your language, having interesting things to say and being enthusiastic and positive with the students.

Does anyone know what is happening in Korea?
