    To be frank, it sounds like a shit place to work and you’re best off out of the place. I can understand the bitterness but as others have already stated, its far better to just move on and put it behind you. I speak from experience.

    Any legal action is going to take a long time and you’ll be still be mentally tied to the place. If I thought for one second, they’d learn a lesson and treat their future teachers any better, then I’d said go for it. Just vote with your feet and get a new job.

    I am assuming that you are on a one year contract, renewed each March/April? if that is the case then you’re not obliged to give them notice, neither are they. However, despite how crap they’ve been it’s professional courtesy to let them know, it’s up to you if you want to burn your bridges. It’s a fixed term contract, so once the contract comes to an end that’s it. It cuts both ways for the employee and employer, the 90 day notice period clause, is if either party wants to end the contract early. Just don’t bother to sign a new contract, when they offer you one for next year. Even if they’ve really pissed you off, just smile and say thanks I’ve had a better offer.

    Start the ball rolling now and begin applying for jobs, sign a new contract and you won’t have to worry about unemployment pay etc.

    Good luck with the new job, a few in Ubon at the moment I believe.

    My prized possession leaving a school was copies of the student evaluations. I've handed over my documents at interviews and they always paid the most attention to these. Get copies if you can.

    Teaching them is no fun, either. Gee, maybe there's a nexus.
