Overworked teachers may be better off on dole

Letter to the Editor

After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:  “Let  me see if I’ve got this right. You want me to go into that room with all those kids,  correct their disruptive behaviour, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages and instill in them a love for learning.

You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self-esteem and personal pride.

You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a check book, and apply for a job.

You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behaviour, and ensure that they all pass their final exams.

You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicap and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Arabic or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card

You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for “New Start at CENTRELINK.”

You want me to do all this, and then you tell me……

I CAN’T wear a necklace with a little cross, mention God, or say “Merry Christmas” because someone might take offense? ”

Well, you know what you can do with your job……..

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Keith, I am totally with you there. I taught for 40 years and loved it but am so glad I am now retired.There is no way I would teach their left wing agenda or encourage children to change their gender. In my day we were not allowed to side with one party or another in front of the children. We taught 5th and 6th grades about Parliament, Upper and Lower House etc but not in great detail.Guess I wouldn’t have a job today!
