A collection of short stories and journalistic commentaries depicting my simple life

TEACHING TODAY



HAVE I GOT THIS RIGHT?

“You want me to go into that room with all those children, correct their disruptive behaviour, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their t-shirt messages, and instil 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 cheque book, and apply for a job.”

“You want me to check their heads for lice, recognise signs of anti-social behaviour, and make sure they all pass their exams.”

“You also want me to provide them all with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish, Greek, Urdu or any other language, by letter, e-mail, telephone, newsletter, and report card.”

“You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a flip chart, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.”

“You want me to do all this and then tell me...”


“I CAN’T PRAY?”
