Great news!

What utter rubbish.  The requirements for a native English speaker to become a teacher is a minimum of a Diploma of Education, which is less than an associates degree, This applies to the USA, UK, Australia.  You do however have to be licensed and that means that your education must be of a minimum standard required by the state (Australia State by State plus national ly accredited course, Nationally UK, or State in the USA).

Please get your facts straight.

China no longer needs western English teachers. There are already enough young Chinese who know
English well enough to teach. China does not need the liability of allowing "English teachers" in from the
west who are all too often in China to spy or spread mind numbing western religions.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

While good teachers could be from of any race or background, and they may or may not be properly certified or educated . . .

Most of the English teachers I have seen in China are educated as teachers with the ESL certificate, have experience and were raised in a country where English was the native language.

First, please show a modicum of your breeding and decorum to your opponents, when you call their comments rubbish. Do you want to set an uncouth role model here being a mod?

Second, a diploma is not really qualified to be a teacher. It is hard to find a teaching job with an associate degree in the US. Do any University hire a teacher with diploma of education? Do any secondary schools hire any person with an associate degree to teach in the City like Melbourne?

Please don't spin any story here. You demand facts, and I show you facts. Here are the qualifications for being a teacher of elementary school.

Education
In order to teach in an elementary school classroom, prospective teachers must first get accepted into an education program and complete a bachelor's degree.

Search the qualifications for being a teaching with key words in those English speaking countries via any searching engines, and them come back to tell us the truth.

These new rules won't be enforced, online university is a good option.
