:mad: OH to be a TEACHER

Don't give me this Health and Safety crap,,I am sorry to say that it boils down to them being a lazy bunch of slackers who seize every opportunity for a day off,,,but what really hurts is the amount of holidays that they have as standard..They want to take a long hard look at themselves.....

Right on..

And due to the fact most of 'em have never been outside the 'school' environment, the only people they have to compare themselves to is the kids they teach..... No wonder they think they work long hours!!


A good ol' dose of the real world would benefit most of 'em!!  :wink:

Actually....

They only do teaching because its a vocation and they`re not in it for money or long holidays. If they were to move to a job in the private sector they could easily earn much more money, and they work very long hours as it is, sometimes up to 75 hours a week.

I know this cos a teacher told me, so it must be true.:mad:

You are quite correct there, they do have less 'work' days but I do know they work a lot at home and also before and after 'school hours'.

However, the thing that I find annoying is that they bleat on and on about how badly they're treated and payed.. Wise up.. there's some proper shitty jobs out there, they've no idea how easy they have it!!

you should try it !!!

my wife is a teacher, in the past she has had class sizes of over 35, with god knows how many different languages/faiths to deal with, kids with severe learning difficulties, kids with emotional problems and some down right obnoxious little bastards.....she has been physically assaulted several times (one requireing hospital treatment) by pupils and pissed up druggy parents who frankly should have been neutered at birth!!

She has had to deal with some very heart-wrenching situations, including dealing with kids who have been sexually abused by their father and/or step-fathers, and at times was more of a mother to them than their own. 

 So fuck off generalising about certain groups of people, yes they have good terms and conditions, but unless you have tried it, (which I never could I know for a fact!).you can't really know... school's want to remain open so the workload doesn't back-up, but it is the namby-pamby Health and Safety state that restricts the Headteachers making these decisions, cos they know if little Johnny falls and breaks something, they are going to get sued!!  :mad:

(unless that 'very successful business' was not quite as successful as they had told everyone....)  :wink:

closed doors

there are a record number.of schools shut there's no doubt about it ..must be very tough for working parents of younger kids having to make alternative arrangements ...even just a few years ago all these schools wouldn't have been closed....it's a different world these days...nobody can possibly be allowed to be cold ...perish the thought(pardon the pun:biggrin:) they might just put a coat & scarf on indoors if the heating's on the blink...& anyone slips or hurts themselves nowadays they look for someone else to blame...

 the teachers themselves don't decide to shut the places it's 'elf & safety stuff that dictates it all ..a lot of schools do ask the staff to attend without kids or with only certain exam years in attendance...
