In my experience, KG and pre-KG (nursery) positions are usually filled by wives of local, or of expat guys who are on contracts, who often work for cheap
on a local salary, but find the discount off school fees
welcome. So it makes no sense to work in KG for a pittance if you are a qualified teacher who can work for a proper salary.

Not so true in teaching... inner city schools and supply agencies often employ teachers from other countries (usually english
speaking natives, ie Australian, South African) to fill the huge gaps left since noone else wants to work there.
