My understanding is that Kaplan has people teaching who have never actually taken an actual LSAT. No doubt some Kaplan instructors are very good, but given a choice between Kaplan and PS/TM, I would still say the safest bet would be to choose one of the latter.

That definitely isnt true at my testing center. In NYC i think you can take an LSAT proctored by Kaplan and if you score high enough then you can teach... but in CT you definitely have to have taken the LSAT.

that isn't true. you have to get above the 90th percentile in the test you're teaching. i can't speak to the quality of any of the programs as I didn't study for any of the tests (although I recently bought the powerscore books to study for the June LSAT).

Alright. I guess I stand corrected.
