Punished for being professional?

So I heard that our school intends to stop the 2nd graders’ English class from the next semester. I couldn’t agree with this more.

I mean, what do you expect from these 2nd graders, who happens to be the beginners of almost everything, to learn a foreign language in a 40 minutes-a-week base? Then I heard that the administration intends to assign other subjects for us to teach to "fill in the gap", which accounts for 3 sessions.

Talk about being FAIR!! I wonder if THEY HAVE EVER CONSIDER BEING FAIR when they shovel 24 sessions a week to me in all these years?

Some veteran teacher said, "那怎麼辦嘛? 你們這樣的師資就是這麼的高的不可替代性啊!"

What? Am I being punished for being professional? What kind of logic is that? Where else in the world can you run a corporate like this? Where else in the world can you ABUSE the professionals without facing any consequences like this?

Yes, only here in the elementary campus, where professionals are less valued than connections and backgrounds.

I don’t want to be cynical but it looks like the campus culture has a lot to improve here.

在國小教英文是勞力密集的行業.有人可以輕鬆看影片的渡過,也有人每堂課40分鐘每10分鐘換一個新活動.辦的英語戲劇營,辦個國際校際交流,在媒體上曝光展現學校的好形象,無形中變成學校的資產是無可厚非.但是漠視目前英語程度雙峰的現象,忽略補救教學的重要性(當然,這寫在新聞稿裏就不那麼的有話題性).台灣的國民教育精神在這方面並沒有隨著時代而進步.

而引進非師院體系的英語專業人材進校園在這樣的校園文化裏也將鼓勵這樣的專業人材再度"跳出"校園,而非"留下".
