Aside: Teachers

Friday 14 October 2011, 8.16am HKT

Astonishing really. All these teachers around us, with various degrees and letters behind their names — some with multiple bachelor and master’s degrees and postgrad qualies — and what happens? They teach kids. Of all things, teach. I find it quite astonishing. Srsly.

    I would go back to it in a heartbeat, but the system is so broken, I just can’t tolerate it. The kids were the best part. And that teacher’s education was my second BA.


    • I know what you mean. I did a ‘school attachment’ for 4 weeks as a (kind of) trainee teacher during my first degree. Yes, the kids really were the best part. But again, the education system that I saw (and frankly, anywhere else in the world) was so broken, with so much pointless factionalism, that I never wanted to touch it again. Who loses out? The next generation.
