The Instructors Weren’t Certified in Early Childhood Education, and the Parents Had to Press for the Facts

This is too, messed up, and it’s still because the government’s not setting up the rules and regulations up completely, problems in the systems, because the Department of Education doesn’t tighten up the requirements, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Based off of early childhood education laws, the various facilities of childcare needed to post the qualifications, the degrees attained, the certifications of the educators openly, but, a lot of the preschool aren’t following this rule, causing over eighty-percent of uncertainties in the answering of the parents’ inquiries, “are the early childhood educators for my child actually, qualified?  Are they certified?”.

As one parent was told of the law’s requirement of the facilities of childcare posting the experiences, the education levels of the early childhood educators, they are all surprised, that there’s not a systems of checks for this, that the schools wouldn’t tell the parents if the instructors are licensed, that they’re worried that if their young is in the class of an unlicensed educator.

Another parent said, that there’s a high turnover rate of instructors in preschool, that her child from the preschool levels to the final year of kindergarten, switched a total of two, three educators, and that there’s no way that she could ask the person in charge of the preschool, if the instructors are fully qualified, and has the certifications.

And the National Parents Organization C.E.O. Peng told, that the private preschools don’t pay for the certified early childhood educators, and not offered the equal benefits and the promotions to the workers, causing the professionals to seek out work elsewhere, and now, there’s this lacking in human resources, in the schools, that this is awful for the parents.

To this, the Department of Education stated, that due to limited human resources, if the parents responded to the local governments, the local governments will do all they can to understand the situation.  Currently, there were only the advisories given to the school on this.

And so, this is how the Department of Education showed complete lack of care and concern, for this problem, not knowing, that early childhood education is one of the most vital time of a child’s life, and, as the quality of education in the early childhood years gets sacrificed, the country is going to sink with it.

Setting the Teaching Centers for the Grade Levels Separately, to Lessen the Strains on the School Teachers

Due to the outbreaks, starting, back up again!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

I’d worked as a recruit for math counselor for over dozens of years, and found the highest quality of math instructors, to work as a teaching team; they’d gotten into the training programs, seminars, counseling, and often conducted the teaching models, and helped resolved the issues of the math instructors; and this group of experts had been, on staff since the start, and yet, the education departments locally, didn’t know how to, utilize this group’s, expertise.

Starting next week due to the pandemic starting back up again, the online teaching means will once again, be used, the teachers not only felt annoyed, there’s even more helplessness, and pain in their, facial expressions; there were the parents who’d lost it, and screamed, “the halting of the schooling sessions came on and off, on and off, don’t the parents need to work away from the homes?”, or, “you think every family has a computer at home?”, and the teachers became, the scapegoats of the government’s policies, because other than halting the in-class sessions, the government can’t come up, with a, better idea.

The parents’ worries are numerous, as are the school instructors’ too, what worries most is the quality of teaching and learning, for instance, the parents asked me to differentiate between schedule and time?  My kids listened to the teacher explain it for a long time, and still can’t quite tell the difference.  I’d told the mother, “don’t go into teaching your child about the difference, just tell your young, the “schedules of trains” is set, unchanged, that’s schedule’ and mom doing laundry is on the lengthiness of the minutes and hours of the wash, that’s time”, then, she’d, understood.

Teaching is an art, why not, have the local cities, counties set up a center for educators, with the various subject instructors, the senior teaching staff members to demonstrate the lessons first, that way, the teachers can model after them, and the students are directly benefitting from this.  Surely, there would, need to be, the incentives offered to the instructors for sure.

And, as I’d thought up of this, I suppose, it’s, too late to get to the systems of instructions, to make the deadline for the halting of the school sessions next week, but, starting up planning the lessons, it’s, not too late still.

And so, this is on how theories are hard to understand, but, using an example, to explain the theories, that would make the lessons more easily understood, and, as instructors, you need to not just teach the theoretical stuff (b/c it’s too dry, too boring, sometimes, too hard to understand), but if you can find the instances to help your students apply what you’re teaching them in class to their own lives, then, the lessons became, alive, and it would make learning and teaching, a whole lot, easier for sure.

Long Hours at School, Too Much Homework, How Can the Students Have Enough Sleep

So, the rules are set, now, it takes some time, to see how it will work out, or if it, won’t!  Reforms of education, delaying the hours of school starting for high school here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A comparison of the school starting time in various countries: in Germany, Mexico, the time of school is from eight in the morn to two in the afternoon, an average class time of six hours; in Japan, Canada, the hours are from nine to three, six hours of class.  For U.S., England and Australia, the average classroom time is six and a half; Russian school starts at 8:30 in the morn, lets out at 3:30 in the afternoons, seven hours of school; France, being the exception of Europe, classes are from eight in the morn to four in the afternoon, a total of eight hours of course instruction.

What about Taiwan?  The students here must arrive in school at 7:30 in the morn for the study period, a lot of the students are taking their options of eighth period, and, the time of them getting out of school is at five in the afternoon, an average of 9.5 hours of school per day, we are the top of the world in the longest school time.  Long hours in school, at home, homework takes forever too, and, this takes away from the time of sleep for the students.  Two years ago the Children’s Welfare League posted its survey results, the high school age students sleep approximately 6.9 hours per night in Taiwan, and China.

the “pros” of school starting later…from online

In 2020, the citizens mentioned on the platform of legislation start up by the citizens online that the school time for middle and high school students should change from 7:30 to 9:30 in the mornings.  Delaying the start of school can help the teens get more sleep, and, separates the time of adults going to work, to prevent the traffic jams; this struck up debates and discussions, and, shortly thereafter, there were more than 10,000 in the local communities who’d signed the petitions.  Back then, the Department of Education stated that it was going to get the opinions from all around.  Then, it went silent, for the entire year of 2021.

Recently, the Chenggong High School announced its doing away with the mandatory early morning study period, the gathering for the whole school in the morn, this is to be implemented on February 11th, as school start, as the news got out, this became, a news of the hour.  Since last semester when Chenggoing High School slashed the warnings of students coming late to school, in the recent school policy meetings (with teachers, parents and students in participation to discuss the matter), the votes for slashing the early morning period of study and gathering in the morning of the whole school was, passed.

The Department of Education is responding too late, it’d finally announced yesterday on the fifteenth, that starting in the fall semester this year the high schools from around the country is not to mandate the students to arrive in school for first period, meaning, that no testing will be held during this first period of class, and finally, the Department of Education had, heard the requests of the students here.

And so, this still showed, how inactive the Department of Education is, in changing its policies of starting of school time, and it’s still up to the citizens, to start CRYING, WHINING about it, for something, TO be, done, and, yet, would the kids really, actually (I mean, for REAL here!!!), take these extra hours of them not going to school early, to catch their ZZZs, or, are they going to, stay up later, knowing, that they don’t have to head off to school early in the morn the following day?

Occupational Hazards

The collaboration of theory AND application here, combining theory AND application, as you became, a lecturer of a film class, teaching a room full of, students, it takes a ton of integration on your part, translated…

For the second semester, I’d had a course at the undergrad level, “Directorship”, because it’s a brand new course, so it took me a whole lot of time, of thought, of mind, on how to prepare the lessons.  It’s quite obscure, that as a professional filmmaker, it’d become hard, for me, to teach others, how to be a filmmaker.

on the set…

photo from online, the application side

On it, more than two decades ago, before I entered into the film department as a college student, it seemed, that I’d not learned anything on directing from the lectures, or from my professors either.  On the assigned film projects, either that every member of the group took turns as directing the films we were making, or that someone raised her/his hands to be the director.  “Director”, is seemingly a high and mighty position, but it’s actually, a trial-by-error basis, slowly discovering how to do the job, learn-as-we-go sort of thing.  Everything started, after I walked out of school, and, started, following the filming crews to the filming sessions, working as set assistant director, what I’d observed how those, “bigshot” directors do it, then I’d, learned the skills, and put it to my own.

“Following the crew in filming is like being in love, working under the different directors is like being in love with different people, it alters your world.” I’d often told the students who are about to work on a set.

There’s this feeling of apprenticeship to the job of director, which masters you follow, is which sort of skills you’re bound to pick up on.  And so, if you can, before becoming a formal director on a set, you have the opportunities to intern under different directors to learn, then, it will make your field of vision, much, much wider.

“What the professor tells you now, how I do things, it’s all my personal experiences, and from my own, perspective.  Don’t take it as the golden rule!”, I’d always reminded my students of this to a point in my lectures.

“Professor, you’d always told us this, is it because you don’t want to take responsibilities for what you’re saying to us?”, my students jokingly stated to me.

Creativity is subjective, like what’s beautiful, and what’s not, but, don’t block your own creative flow, because of the limits you set for yourselves.  I think, that, because of a heart of responsibility to my students, that’s why, I’d, worked so hard, to make my students understand this value.

The “skills” of directors, I can’t describe in theory in class, most of what’s understood, gained as knowledge and wisdom, is from the practicalities of field work.  But I know, that there’s the varied “personalities” for the various occupations.

different than this…

on “paper”…photo from online

I’m a director who loved collecting things, at home, in my office, in every corner, there were, the tracks of “stories” which I drew my inspirations of filming from.  But my wife is totally opposite, she’d an analyst who focused on hardcore data, the statistics, the efficiencies of how things are done, the unneeded, the unnecessary, she’d, gotten rid of in a moment.  The two of us, one very rational, one very, sentimental, becoming married, living together, and naturally, as you may imagine, there were, many conflicts we’d had with one another, what I wanted to keep, she wanted to throw out, what I could care less about, she’d, believed it to be, important.  All of these frictions caused many tears to fall, also, added more fun to our lives.  For instance, she’d taught me how to estimate the budgets before I plan out a shoot; to not set my sights too high, otherwise, I would be the one, crying at the very end……………while she’d learned from me, how to slow down her paces, to not care about the gains, and just, enjoy the process of doing things, that there is meaning to be gained, no matter how bad the results.

Yeah, this is, the occupational hazards, of every, single occupation.

And now, the occupational hazard I’d, “acquired” as a lecturer is, “be careful what I say to my students”, worried that every word out of me, those carelessly blurted aloud ones, can damage a student…………it’s no wonder, the curriculum of my “Director’s Cut” keeps on, getting, stuck……………………

So, this is on transferring the application into the theoretical, it’s not that easy, even IF you are a professional, you’d done this a long, long time, but, to teach what you do to a class of students, it’s, a different story, and you’re still, trying to learn how to be a lecturer of a film class, even though, you’d worked as a documentary film director since you got out of your own university years.

When the Right to Life is NOT a Given

Welcome to, the REALITY of things!!!  Call this, evolution, in, A-C-T-I-O-N if you will…

When the right to life is NOT a given, because, not all of us, make it, through our lives, from start to a hundred-ish!  Because due to the lacking of resources (food, water, roof over our heads, and now, the vaccines too!), not all of us, will, “make it”…

When the right to life is NOT a given, we engage in this, bad sort of competition, like those animals on the plains, fighting, to stay alive, to procreate, so we can, pass our god damn GENES down to the next generations.  And that, is driven by our, animalistic, survival instincts.

When the right to life is NOT a given, we’d had to, fight over what we can get our hands on, and, it’s currently, happening right here, right now, the people needed to, compete with time, and with each other, to sign up for that needed third vaccine here, because, the government FAILED in its, functions.

When the right to life is NOT a given, do we, take life like it’s, too precious to lose?  Of course not, because, humans ARE, stupid (feel free to take an offense!), because we humans are, selfish, and that’s why, eventually, we will, come to an end, somewhere, down this, “line”, don’t know when or how, but, we will all be, eliminated, and, get replaced by a brand new breed of, higher functioning, higher-thinking, beings in the future…

The Woman Kept Hostage for Sixteen Hours After the Breakup with the Boyfriend Demanding One Last Sexual Intercourse with Her Used Her Wits to Save Herself

One last FUCK, before we part, that, is how you all want it, isn’t it???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The thirty-year-old man, Jeng, and his girlfriend are on the verge of breaking up, he was upset that all those years of love became wasted, he’d pulled his girlfriend into a motel on the sixth of this month, abused her, didn’t CARE that she was having her period, demanded her for “breakup sex”; the woman had the plans of escape, asked him to go out to buy her tampons, and as he was away, she’d, called the police, she was finally freed, after ten hours of being kidnapped by Jeng.  As Jeng was arrested, he’d denied the allegations, but the woman showed her injuries to the police, the district attorneys charged him with obstruction of sexual freedoms and other charges, asked the courts to have Jeng in custody, which the courts signed off on yesterday.

The police found, that Jeng had been dating his girlfriend for years, recently, they’d started fighting often, Jeng refused to break up; at eight in the morn on the sixth, Jeng drove to his girlfriend’s place and waited, wanted to get her to fall back in love with him.

As he saw her coming downstairs, readying to leave, and ignored him, he’d pulled her by force into his car, then, drove all the way, to a motel in Fengshan District.  The woman thought that Jeng only wanted to “confront” her about the breakup, and they’d, started talking, when Jeng lost it, and started physically smacking her down.

The woman was having her menstrual cycle on the day, Jeng still forced to have “breakup sex” with him, the woman worried that she may get beaten violently, and can only agree, she was raped twice; and afterwards, Jeng would NOT allow her to leave the room, restricted her, kept her hostage for ten hours on end.

The woman feared for her own life, not angered Jeng, waited until he’d let his guards down, claimed to him that she forgot to bring her tampons, asked him to get a pack for her at the super convenience shops, Jeng didn’t question her, and left, as he was gone, the woman immediately called for help from the motel staff, the police arrived, the woman called out for help; as soon as Jeng returned, he was arrested.

Jeng admitted to slapping his girlfriend across the face, but denied rape, claimed it was consensual, but the woman showed her injuries, and stressed that she was forced to have sex with him.

The district attorney’s didn’t believe Jeng’s words, charged him with obstruction of sexual freedom, obstruction of freedom, and other charges, and after the district attorneys questioned him, they’d asked the courts to have Jeng in custody, which the courts had signed off on.

And so, this, is right AFTER that law was signed into effect, of the preventing abuse from these horrid lovers, and, this still just showed, of how no matter what the laws stated, there will be those who knowingly breaks it, and it don’t matter how advanced this country believes it is on the matter of rights to protect woman, it’s still, lightyears behind.  These laws only works on paper, but not when it gets put to the test!

The Anti-Stalking Laws Will be Enforced Six Months from Now Tsai: a Lot of Women Live Under the Threats of Domestic Violence Regularly

Yeah, uh, guess how many MORE are gonna DIE, before the law’s been, set into motion again?  This should’ve been effective IMMEDIATELY, but, unfortunately, I do NOT control this shit, so…off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The news of the legislator, Kao being physically abused by her boyfriend shocked the nation.  The president, Tsai yesterday, signed the “Stalking harassment prevention law”, and announced that the law will be fully enforced six months from now.  She said, with this newly written law, in the future, the police can intervene earlier, when the acts of illegally stalking someone, harassing someone occurred, to prevent the injuries or the deaths.

As Tsai signed, the head of legislature, Su, the head of internal affairs, Hsu, the recruit of the DDP, Ke, the legislators from the party, Kwan, Fan all were there at the press conference, to bear witness; as the president signed, she’d, handed the pen that she’d signed with to Hsu as a gift.

Tsai said, the stalking act is the vital step to prevent the violence against the genders, that in the evaluation of the entire global community, this made us ahead of the rest in gender equality, but now, there are still, a lot of women who are, faced with the violence, and the threats of domestic violence regularly.

Tsai told, that two days ago, was the twenty-fifth anniversary of the “Wan-Ru Peng incident”, back then, the female manager of the Women’s Department of the DDP, in order to get the women to be more involved with the “Quarter Act”, she’d gone to promote the cause in Kaohsiung and was murdered, and it’d called up the awareness of the public to pay more attention to women’s safety in society, and there were the laws that set up in relation to this matter, “but on this path, there are always, more to be done, I shall keep working hard, to make the country’s people live on with more ease.”

Hsu told, that he’d directed the Department of Police Affairs to speed up the police education training programs, and, are putting in more forces on the police units right now.

Wow, sounds o grand, doesn’t it?  But, it’s all just, boasting, I mean, who’s to say, that after this god damn law gets passed, that it would work, really, in preventing violence against women, and, note this, men can also be victims of abuse too, so, what about them???  Yeah, this is still, just, idealistic, but nowhere NEAR realistic, just like all of the proposed acts, the currently government has right now.

The Belief of the Elementary School Principal in Education, “Slow is Fast”

His beliefs about education: steady and slow, wins, that race!  A dedicated, educator, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The school principal of Jingwha Elementary, Tseng had been working for forty years to date in the realms of education, in the past, he’d pushed forth the teaching methods of the science subjects as closely related to life, as the 2019 education reforms were implemented, he’d hosted the seminars monthly, to help the instructors deal and cope with the changes in the new curricula, and given them advise on how to teach the classes, and, held firm to the beliefs of “in and out, living and learning”, to educate the students.  Tseng told, that this may be, ambiguous, but, the well-rounded beliefs of education leis that “simplicity will be everlasting, step by step, making the learning flow along more smoothly.”

Tseng told, that he’d been pushing forth the reforms of education of 2019, and now it’s finally, implemented, and the biggest differences of the former curricula and the current is in the “directions of the lessons”, for science, for instance, during the original lesson plans, the plants would be taken apart into parts for the students to learn about.

The Concepts of “Life in Life Out” in Teaching the Students

But the new curricula had the students to learn about the generalized concepts first, for the students to make observations about the plants, to get them to become curious, then to explain to them which part of the plants are which, the instructors’ roles in guiding the discoveries is vital, it’s closer to reality, instead of taking the plant apart, and learning the various parts of the plants from before.

“The concepts I want to train the students to learn is life in, life out”, Tseng said, that through caring about a certain thing, to discuss with the students on the processes, to hypothesize, to deduct, then to, discuss, to the final, end results, the conclusions, instead of ignoring the process, and getting, straight to the end, the answers.  And, after the discoveries, then, what’s learned in the classrooms can be more easily applied to every day life, the knowledge that the students can take, out of, the classroom setting.

the photo of this, dedicating, educator…

off of UDN.com

Tseng who’d planned the science education curricula, and worked as the science club sponsoring instructor, with a rich experience in teaching the subject, even as he became the principal, he’d still set up the open lectures every school year, to teach the school children about science, and he’d hosted the education seminars to help the instructors find ideas to teaching, under the 2019 academic reforms.

Education Shouldn’t be Focused Solely on the End Result, and Ignoring the Processes of Learning

Tseng stated, that in the past, the students were passive, in absorbing everything the instructor fed to them, and now, the students are getting active, asking questions in the classroom settings, it would give the teacher more motivation to teach, but it’s also, a challenge, the students and teachers learning together, exchanging their thoughts, this, is the meaning of the new reforms of education.

Tseng smiled and told, that he has a belief about teaching, and running a school, which is, “simple is, longer lasting, slow and steady, wins the races.”, it sounds ambiguous, but the truth is, education shouldn’t be focused on the end results, and ignoring the processes in the middle, that it should be on the step-by-step discovery processes, after the concepts are learned, then, learning becomes, smoother flowing.

And so, this, is the school principal’s beliefs about education, and he’d, put his theories into, practice, in advocating the new education reforms, and, he’d made the lessons in science more applicable to the students’ every day life, which is, combining the theories with the application, which is what learning is, all about.

The Social Workers’ Understanding of Multiple Cultures is WAY More Important than Their Bilingual Abilities to Speak & Understand English

Written by a part-time social work associate professor, on how UNREALISTIC the policy of social workers being certified in the English language truly, is, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

On the trends of globalization, and internationalization trend, to up the competitive edge internationally, the government is reinforcing the means of dual-language education, and the testing department, in correspondence with the policies, is planning on setting up the requirements to have the English language standardize tests into the requirements, as this news came, the social work realm started ranting, everybody thought this was an unreasonable rule, that it’s, incomprehensible why the government was, mandating this.  In the realms of social worker, being culturally educated is way more important than being able to speak English fluently, the testing department shouldn’t set the standardized qualifying rules for social workers to be fluent in English, to pass the English standardized tests.

Taiwan is a multicultural community, with the foreign spouses closing in to 540,000 and those who speak Chinese close to 580,000, and this data still excludes all the foreign workers, along with the children from the foreign spouses, but, it’d been proven, that there were the problems of cross-generation upbringing, and the employment issues from the natives and the migrant families, and the rates of domestic violence, child welfare and protection are a slight bit higher in ratio too.  The population of women who are in the special conditions is higher than the other groups’, especially in recent years, the single parent families, and the cases of families on the lower end of the economic spectrum rising up fast; while the structures of social work had been providing the welfare programs to the general public, that instead, these help programs should be tailored to the varied needs of each individual and individual families specifically, and so, there’s, this necessity of the multicultural awareness and understanding.

Taiwan is now, impacted by the reduction of birthrate, the aging population, and in the implementing of the long-term care program, the trained professional social workers are, absolutely, necessary, and, yet, there’s, a very strict qualification for the certification of becoming a social worker, with the forty-five professional credits in the studies, more than four hundred hours of internship in the facilities.  And now, for the sake of “globalization” the government had added the English language qualifications exams, ignoring the local voices, can it, really, resolve the issues, it’s, quite, doubtful.

The social problems that the social workers come face to face with, in order to understand the issues with each and every case, the primary way is to get to know the values, the life experiences of the cases who are soliciting the assistance, the cultural backgrounds of the various individuals, then, they are able to, provide, the best needed, assistance to them, and so, getting these social workers trained on the multiple cultural awareness is what’s most important in the now.  Adding in the English language qualification exams, this will only drive the test takers to the cram schools, and, even if the test takers pass the exams, will they be helpful enough to the cases?  I truly suggest, that instead, “adding the language courses for the natives and the newly migrants”, to enforce the communication means of the social workers with their cases, to bring the language to everyday living, to pull the social workers closer to the cases they’re assigned to, that, is what’s, more, practical.

is way more important than…

And this still just showed, how UNREALISTIC the policies those lawmakers came up with, that are being signed into legislation are, unrealistic, and they’re making the social worker majors, to add on, another fifty, sixty, even seventy more hours of English courses so they can pass their English certification exams, and the writer is absolutely RIGHT, on the fact, that the government should SLASH this rule of English language evaluations, and maybe, focus on the languages of the foreign care workers, the migrant workers’ home language, that way, these social workers will be able to help assist these cases even better!

The Parents & the School Instructors Not on the Same Page on Using the Surveys to Stop Bullying

How do you think conducting a SURVEY can end bullying in school, huh???  I…dunno!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Department of Education amended the wording of the Anti-Bullying Laws in July for the schools from “student to student” to “Principal, teachers and students to students”, and mandated the schools needed to conduct surveys regularly for the students.  The Head of Department of Education held a press conference on the matter, stated that the definition of bullying isn’t clear cut enough, the students may misinterpret discipline into bullying, and the schools get turned into the prison system, and the teachers are, teaching within the jail cells of wording correctly.  But the parent groups believed, that the law will help improve the situation of the victims’ fearing to speak out, that it can, help prevent bullying in school.

The department pointed out, this legislation will mandate that all middle schools, fifth, sixth grade classes in the elementary do a survey of life on campus every April of each year, and follow up on the cases to give the needed counseling measures.  And the related statistics will be sent to the managing units of education and the Department of Education to review over.

Half of the survey is on the bullying of students by peers, and the other half is on the teachers bullying the students.  The questions included, “the teacher had told other students to pick on me”  “The teacher had taken a mean tone with me, or the teachers mocked me”, “I was publicly humiliated by the instructor in front of everyone”.  And all of these questions are quite vague, it’d affected the ruling of the teachers in the classrooms, and it can, make the instructors live in fear.

The C.E.O. of the Parenting League, Peng advocated this amendment, she’d stated, that there’s an unequal distribution of power between the students and teachers, the questionnaire can be used as a voice for the students, as the children come face to face with trouble, we can, offer our help to them immediately.  And even if the students are exaggerating in their claims, the teams of investigators can differentiate between discipline and bullying, to not hurt the instructors’ right to work.  She’d also suggested to the Department of Education to set up the rules, to file the questionnaires into the computer, and using the data on a grander scale, to prevent bullying in school.

And so, you can see, how this can be, problematic, right?  I mean, these are teenagers, and you know these teens have the tendencies to take everything too serious, like how they would interpret things too personally, even IF it wasn’t directed against them as people, and so, under this system, I imagine, that a TON of teachers would get called into the Department of Education, for reviews of their teaching qualifications, and yet, this, is what the government is currently doing, because they want these children to have a voice, to have more right, to decide how they’re being taught.  They believe this is a step toward democracy, but it’s actually N-O-T!  The teachers’ jobs are hard enough, and now, they risk getting reviewed by the board of whatever, for getting LOUD when the classroom get too loud, uh, yeah, this is when democracy turned into, demoCRAZY!!!
