anti-social students; no truth curriculum; no discipline or consequences
Guest Teacher (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 10, 2019
Working in the Philadelphia school system was like walking into a nightmare. The "good" schools were too sensitive to teach the truth to and the "bad" schools were apathetic to the truth. The truth meaning where your hamburger really comes from. Food keeps us alive, but not one sliver of truth, study, investigation, topic of discussion, book or mention of what really is going on with our treatment of that "food source", animals. It's kept hidden, just like our society does it; keeps it secret and far away so no one finds out the truth! And not just "food", but pharmaceuticals and experiments on animals, and the perpetuation of war and military experiments on land and sea animals. There is a holocust going on, right now, on animals; similar to what the Jewish people suffered in Germany.
My opinion is that most of what they are taught is useless to student needs. They need character building, etiquitte and conflict resolution practice. The curriculum still is mostly sexist, racist and speciesist. We substitute teachers did not get a raise for 5 years, so we could not keep up with rising prices and then, we were thrown out of the teachers union, which eliminated our pensions!
nice hours, pension when we were unionized, some potential for truth
anti-social students (disrespect): no room for truth; no consequences
