You may wish to try one of the International Schools in Shenzhen -- there are several.  Dave's is a good place to start looking, as is teacher's board, as is this site.  If you don't want to be a "white monkey" as they call it here, then I would probably avoid any LTC for sure.  Do avoid, however, the two Korean schools in Shenzhen, both have been cauldrons of trouble these past years.  Also, you may wish to check shenzhen expat for job listings, as well as abroadchina.  All the best to you.

FIrst you will need to do some research of the places you are applying to. The best way to do this is to search their school website or check the internet for comments about that particular school. If people put down bad things about that place it doesn't mean that the school is bad just because of someone's opinion it just means you have to watch out and be extra careful about what those people wrote down. The best places to teach I agree would be international schools. I'm not sure about Shenzhen but there is a magazine in bigger cities such as BJ that you can find the top international schools in the area and they have a listing of what they offer and provide. So check the internet for comments about the school and if you can find a magazine not sure if they have one for that city check it to see where all the schools rank in that city....

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
