教育

老师都是无名英雄

在每一个人的成长过程中,老师经常起着至关重要的作用。回想学生时代,总是会有那样的时刻,老师给了你人生关键的建议;总是会有那样的日子,老师帮助你挺过了灰暗的时光;总是会有那样的老师,让你一辈子心存感激!

然而,老师的作用往往被忽视。事实上,特别在这样一个信息时代,老师的职业显得更加重要。医生延续病人的生命,律师帮助社会实现公平,艺术家,科学家寻求社会的和谐进步,而老师却可以无私地指导我们从启蒙到成熟,到最终独立。

Teachers Are The Forgotten Heroes

By Anthony J. Mountjoy

Teachers are the ones who groom our future, who ensure our peace, who develop our competitive capacity. Everything else good in life, benefits from the job our teachers do so selflessly in our lives when we are most vulnerable and impressionable.

Think back to your own childhood and we both know there’s a special teacher that stands out during an important moment in your life. Someone who helped you through a difficult challenge with some well chosen advice.

They didn’t do it for you, but instead helped you realize an opportunity for you to apply your own tools to do what must be done. Acting as an affirming force good or bad so you can learn and eventually understand. A teacher doesn’t train, a teacher shows you the paths before us all and makes it clear it’s up to you whether you walk, run or avoid them entirely.

The average pay for a High School Principal in Canada is $98,326.00 per year.

So please, somebody explain to me, why teachers are paid an average of only $54,000.00 a year before taxes in Canada which after a standard 40% tax rate amounts to a living wage of around $30,000.00 a year take home. Someone please explain to me how it has become acceptable to throw teachers under the bus whenever parents trigger as though school is a product and the parent the customer. If a teacher gets stressed and freaks out at school, I don’t want them fired, I want those parents to offer a heartfelt thank you to the teacher for showing up to work in the first place.

Here’s what I think. I think its a privilege your kids have a teacher. The vast majority of children don’t. I think you as a parent should be kissing said teachers ass for bothering to allow your sh*tty little child to be in the same room as them. Education is NOT a right. Your child is NOT special. Not valuable, not useful. Your child is a selfish little turd and it is that teacher that has any chance at all of changing that.

So remember my words the next time you demoralize, yell, or lobby against that teacher that dared to speak the truth to you and your under-achieving kid. That it is your kid who suffers when the school fails to stand up to you and protect that teacher. Its YOUR kid who will be weak and under-prepared when competing against my kid, because your ego wouldn’t allow a good teacher to do her job.

If its more important to you that your child’s self esteem is solid but not her math scores, give your head a shake. Don’t saddle your daughter with the same yoke as yesterday.
