    There was never more development or cranes in the air than when Rob Ford was running Toronto. He was a great mayor.

    There’s 4 major divisions in Belgium: general education, then technical education, and then ‘professional’ which is often bricklaying, woodworking, etc. And then there’s special ed.

    I was in the ‘professional’ part, which is often seen as the worst but it depends on school from school. No real violence towards me, just verbal, some teachers were threatened. It’s worst in Brussels, I know someone and he had a knife thrown in the blackboard when he didn’t want to quit early.

    My classes were mostly bored, got into fights with each other, ‘adhd’, rude, often poor backgrounds.

    Of course it’s nothing compared to American schools when there’s gangbangers etc sitting in class. I’m not naive in that way and I’m not trying to be a tough guy here. I quit btw but not because of students.

    He was a horrible mayor and a horrible person. He will be remembered as an abusive, obnoxious, crack smoking, alcoholic bully. The only thing he ever did for Toronto was get it some promotion on late night talk shows by being laughed at.

    @bobgeese Try getting about twenty 16 year olds who’re in the process of becoming chefs or working in restaurants, from a poor background, to discuss social issues or politics or morality on a monday morning.

    FWIW, my gf is a teacher and she complains that teachers are often expected to be surrogate parents to kids and instruct them on things besides the subjects they are teaching, like social skills, hygiene, diet, self-control, etc.

    Ok. So they should be happy with a 3% wage DECREASE over the last decade?

    Was the school year longer a decade ago?

    Get destroyed by FACTS and LOGIC, bro.

    For most teachers, they need the days off for lesson planning, buying materials for activities, behaviour plans, individual program plans, professional development sessions, marking tests and papers, planning field trips and activity days for the students and meetings with specialists, administration and parents. Things get even crazier when report card time comes around multiple times a year. Teaching is a brutal job and that is why most teachers quit within the first five years of starting out. Most teachers are not kicking back and relaxing on their days off. They are preparing for the days ahead. You also have to factor in all of the bullshit that students pull day after day which makes things even harder on a teacher.

    I'm sure most of the teachers roll their eyes at this stuff too, but it's pushed into the curriculum from above.

    Why the political powers push this stuff so hard onto the masses, well..

    I agree. But there's always a few weirdo teachers even in the best schools that will push this depravity.

    But in some areas you'd be fired immediately for disobeying the "Gender Warrior" program. I wouldn't last one week on a teaching job in a place like San Francisco.

    Even in the USA, they are firing teachers who don't use "proper pronouns."

    Hespect,

    But I’ll raise you managing a classroom with kids like this,

    Super disruptive, because he’s never been taught discipline (again, state law we could not discipline the kid) by his literal absentee crackhead mom, who does no laundry so the kid comes to school in his moms huge pink fluffy socks, which he acts out to draw attention from. Then when he acts out, thanks to that awesome state law, we can’t remove him from the classroom.

    Or should we talk about the kid (with no diagnosis, well except for failed parents) who would just roll around on the floor?


    I am sure you have stories as well. The question is do you want to do this when you see some asshole talk about “the problem in education is the teachers”?

    teaching is a really difficult job. a lot of people get into it thinking they might like it, or just that it's just a job to do. once they start doing it, it becomes an overwhelming experience real quick.

    your paycheck is small (really small depending on what state you are), no funding so you have to buy hundreds (maybe even thousands) of dollars a year in supplies (and the feds only give you like a $250 deduction for the year), parents can be a super nightmare, nightmare kids that are difficult to handle, a lot of hours of work you don't get paid for outside of the classroom for lesson planning, and now to make it worse, many states are systematically dismantling teacher unions (through the help of the last supreme court ruling) and will likely see reduced salaries and benefits in the years to come. then to boot, you are expected to do 1,000 different things other than be a teacher. you have to be a psychiatrist, therapist, parental figure, etc. - and now with school shootings apparently law enforcement. who the fuck wants to do that for $25k - $60k a year.

    so yea, there's a reason few people stay as teachers and why it has a high turnover rate. and since there's such a huge demand for teachers, people looking for work get into it but then immediately quit within the first 3 years of teaching. you have to really love teaching to be a teacher these days, and those types are in very short supply.

    Still overpaid for the most part.
    I have a friend who teaches at a public school in rural (dirt cheap) Ontario.
    He's under 40 years old and makes over 100 k.

    It's too much, even he says it's too much.
