ETJ at Linked In - On the Fallout after Nova and GEOS
I think the trend for a bit over ten years has been towards the non-Japanese small school owner. This trend was one of the causes of the Nova/Geos problems and was also accelerated by these problems. It has also been a big reason for the growth of ETJ.
Personally, I think the shift to these small schools is a very positive and constructive trend for English language teaching in Japan.
