Garnet publishing play pass the parcel and leave Garnet Education holding the poisoned chalice

The publisher is owned by a Lebanese conglomerate, the Tahseen Khayat Group. Obviously they can publish whatever rubbish they want, but that doesn’t mean schools teaching English as a foreign language need to use their materials. Unfortunately however there is no overall governing body for these EFL schools.

Although British attitudes to Israel are ambiguous to say the least, I’m not sure there is any specifically British fault here. I’d like to think that the majority of Garnet staff aren’t even aware of what’s in most of their books.

I’d like to think that.

Pakistanis. Cowed Britain is terrified of fire wielding mobs so they do this. Soon enough though everyone in Britain will have to take ESL should they so choose which they likely wont. At least they can keep warm by burning all the libraries.
