School directors are a whacky lot eh?
Here's some policies that our school director has implemented just lately.
The school canteen staff may no longer handle money so instead of one huge queue at lunchtime the kids must join two. One to purchase tokens from a skeleton staff of 2 and the second to queue up as before.
Signing in for teachers in the morning is old hat. Now teachers must submit their fingerprint on a database and scan in each morning which will record the time they sign in. Kickbacks from the company providint the technology...oh yes!
A new perimiter fence is a huge priority because the old one was just not beautiful enough. Never mind that some classrooms have no fans, the science lab has no equiptment and that toilets are damaged to be rendered unusable. Let's build a new fcking fence..no..let's start building a fence and 1 month into term have it still unfinished without athe slightest hint of a workman in 3 weeks.
Airconditioners are no longer to be serviced/rapaired because they cost too much to run.
I know lets piss off all the teachers by cutting their April holiday short by 10 days...splendid idea!
Let's implement a two week timetable and make ALL classes 1hr 40 mins, we'll have the staff evaluate it at the end of the year. End of year comes and staff are in danger of giving negative feedback, so no evaluation form is circulated.
Chalk is no longer to be supplied to classrooms and instead the OHP is to be used at all times. No new whiteboards will be installed as pens cost too much. OHP's are to be installedinto bulky cabinets that take up half the classroom floorspace.
Anyone else have an autoratic director with whacky unworkable ideas that timid Thai staff wearily just go along with?
No and begin your search for a new job today, and post this to the MOE.
Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.
Too long like a rolling stone, Too long in exile
Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
...with maybe a copy of your post attached to your resignation letter (anonymous, of course).
...majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd...
You can buy land mines in Cambodia, real ones.
Frogs have a water tight ass!
i think there's a fair bit of exaggeration in the OP. how could the above be 'policy' ? and even if it were, would you announce it to your staff?Originally Posted by podge
I dont know Ray anything can happen here. Possible translation problems when I think about it again.
I mean even in my kids school they turn the air off from 12 to 1pm while they eat lunch. They think it saves energy.
But there are some hard core older admin types that just dont want to change and have been in long enough they are a few years away from a decent pension.
Brilliant contribution mate
Its Viperload! Welcome back troll.
Can you tell me where to apply?Originally Posted by podge
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
During a staff meeting, the native speeekers complained about the Air not working. The HOD said she would tell the Ass. Director about it, only to be told that the Director had told him the school would not be repairing any A/C units in our building because they cost too much to run....I'm serious!
Is this some new warden or what? Dude, if this is the start, just think what is in store for you in the weeks to come. Do I hear Saturday and Sunday classes---for free??????Here's some policies that our school director has implemented just lately
I dream at night of airconditioning
I teach alot without aircon, and I'm ok with it, but I know it bothers most people not to have it. So, I sort of feel for ya there. The OHP thing though...that's bonkers.
start going through light bulbs. Blow two a week. see what happens.
I went to a meeting in Bkk where they discussed the gov schools initiating this thumb print sign in....coinsides with a bigger picture internet project....and the schools transferring there old style admin to the pc sys so things can be checked on-line.
Miles and miles to go before I sleep...
