Who teaches teachers?

Teachers have arrogated themselves to the power to educate the boys. But that's the task of the parents. Focus on what you have to do, boys.


The teachers have proved to be a combative and organized guild. One of the toughest. With the government of Mauricio Macri, clearly. Not with the Peronistgovernments. Elections are elections. They are free to pursue policies that they believe are necessary for their struggle.

There is no doubt that they should be one of the two best paid professions. Nor can anyone deny that they have been relegated for a hundred years. I think the last time they won properly was in Sarmiento's time. They remembered the fight late...

But it doesn't matter. I don't want to go in there. I'm not interested, although it has exciting edges. For example: You ask for sick leave for years because you charge badly or you charge badly because you ask for sick leave for years? Do you do it for an understudy to give classes or do the understudy have to teach because the headlines don't go? Exciting edges, for a debate that will not be today. But we should give it to ourselves as a society.

Because these people instruct our children

But from where? From what programs of study? Worse still: from what perspective of labor and global integration are the plans planned? I ask why teachers and teachers are sitting at the table that decides these issues.

These people instruct our children, they are supposed to be for the future, but they themselves are not trained. In new teaching and methods. That is, where do you instruct them?

And the thing starts to get dirty.

Because they don't train to instruct, but they get into education. It's not the same thing. They shouldn't educate anyone. I know: there are kids that parents don't care about educating. And teachers take that role. Mistake.

I don't want you to raise my kids. That's what I'm for. Instruct them. Prepare them for knowledge of the future. And nothing else. It's a lot, if you think about it. Almost as much as I do. It's a huge responsibility. But they don't take it. They teach them the rivers of Europe and to make mathematical calculations that are done with a calculator. That one time in your life you're gonna use it. They instruct them in useless things in the 21st century; they are all on Google.

Yeah, that's right. They want to educate me.

And the worst thing is, they don't ask me. In Santa Cruz, there's a kilombo father with the teachers. The other day, one went out to say that kids would rather teach them how to fight than learn... Oh, yeah. Clear. He said that.

Who are the teachers to claim my children's education? Who gave them that power? According to who? Teach them to fight???? We're all crazy. So, then, you have a UBA where you practice politics. They're not going to learn. They're going to do politics. I don't see that in any advanced country. And for a reason it will be.

I studied law at UBA in 1981 and 1982. I still remember my impression of the first day. Seeing that the university was not entered through the doors of the main hall, between the columns. No, I don't. He entered through a little side door, facing a small hall. All full of flags of political groupings. Papers and banners stuck on the walls. Guys who had been “studying” for 12 years. It's still like that. And since it's public and free, these are paid by us not to go to school, but to do politics. Why don't you go to the basic units?

Thank you, teachers.

Let my children be raised by me. In the fight or not. As far as ME and Mom seem to us. They're paid little. But they don't get paid for that. Focus on preparing them for the world of the future. Something they forgot to do a long time ago.

Coincido plenamente . Estoy escribiendo acerca de la educación? en Argentina. Es paupérrima. Enseñar es VOCACIONAL y el maestro debe acompañar a la familia pero su función principal es instruir y hacer pensar a los estudiantes. No están mal pagos, están mal acostumbrados a protestar en vez de ir a clase. Si enseñan por dinero deberían buscar otro trabajo, Yo comencé a enseñar a los 16 años cuando las horas eran de 40 minutos e iba en bondi de escuela en escuela. Por favor! Mis abuelos, maestros también , estarían avergonzados del staff de hoy. Sin generalizar , la gran mayoría no está preparada para estar frente a una clase. Me da tristeza. Excelente nota!
