Fuck the Daily Mail and its 'Hate a Teacher' shit.

I haven't bought the filthy rag - just seen it on the newsstands. The last three or four days, the headline has been on the theme of evil teachers trying to destroy YOUR children's futures. They can go to fucking shite.

Isn't it the evil unions who they are bashing? Those wicked institutions who support communism and hate the noble British ideals?

FleurDuMal - 20 May 2020 13:40:16 (#2 of 327)

The same evil unions who are acting on the wishes of their members?

Fascists have always despised education.

Bourgeois twats have gone well past the stage of fetishising isolation. They are bored. They want to be served and entertained (as we all do, but they are more soaked in privilege and being generally spoiled).

The "jouranlists" are the tip of the spear in this squalid discourse. There's only so many times they can write the same article about their baking and home schooling efforts.

Teachers should listen to the wise ministers and get back to school. Being locked in the same room with a group of children, breathing the same air for a few hours must be perfectly safe...

Err, isn't that how unions started, well before the education act by asking questions?

Any teacher who is not HERO enough to return to school will be shown the Daily Mail white feather.

FleurDuMal - 20 May 2020 13:45:47 (#7 of 327)

Yes, it is. The point is, however, that the unions are acting on behalf of their members, not against them, as the Daily Vile seems to be trying to suggest.

It is disgusting they are using the NHS Heroes thing to brand other workers as villains.

Arjuna - 20 May 2020 13:53:30 (#10 of 327)

The unions speak for teachers the Daily Mail does not speak for NHS workers.

We can't really afford to pay teachers their GOLD PLATED PENSIONS , so they'd be really helping if a few of them could die from C19

You're right, I can't afford to retire on my GPP.

NEU membership has gone up about 10k within days thanks to the DM.

FleurDuMal - 20 May 2020 14:09:51 (#13 of 327)

Has it really? Good!

Let's hope DM readership has gone down, in the same period.

I use it all the time in class - all the tabloids and we dissect the stories.

Kids get it straight away.

Had a friend literally tell me "not being funny right but if they signed up to be teachers they must be aware they're gonna catch whatever virus' kids have".

After I picked up my jaw I pointed out while partly true surely she didn't expect that to include deadly viruses.

It's the catchment as well - ours come from all over the country so we never become immune to anything.

A couple of years ago - there were about 10 of us off with chest infections - two of us got pneumonia. I was off for 6 weeks, the last two with shingles.

When I was a new teacher, I had a child show me a rash she had between her fingers - foolishly, I ran my fingers over it and then told her to see the Dr.

She was off for quite a while with scabies. I escaped - miraculously.

We've just had an email saying that the earliest we'll reopen is 15 June, and then only for certain students.

That was a decision made by Senior Management, not the evil unions.

Graun is saying MPs are backtracking on 1st.

SaffronSunrise - 20 May 2020 14:18:14 (#19 of 327)

PPE for teachers?

They say no - small children are disturbed by masks.
