The biggest teachers` trade union advises teachers to go on Italian strike - perform only duties from the contract and skip all others. That means extracurricular classes and trips longer than daily working hours will be out of question. PiS enjoys those suggestions coz they feared another major strike in most schools, like before. Now the government won`t have to deal with angry teachers, only students will suffer. That`s unacceptable so I am fully against. Morons.

Did I already mention European days in Polish schools?

German days are held in kindergartens, elementary schools and high schools.

Kindergartens

So, the schools are going to be closed for two weeks from Monday. Secondary schools from tomorrow. We aren`t too happy about it in our school coz we are losing an opportunity to work with final year students before their school leaving exams in May. I could do one full chapter from our Revision Book. Now it will be lost.

Students won`t go on foreign exchange in April. All trips have been cancelled.

That unexpected break will also cost teachers some money - they won`t do and be paid overtime. I have had about 10 overtime classes per week.

I only worry this fortnight will be prolonged coz I don`t think the virus will have disappeared completely by the end of the break.

PS. It was exactly last Wednesday when I told my students that schools would be closed in Poland and now it was the question of not "if" but "when". I didn`t predict, though, it would happen as soon as today. I was thinking about late May, June.

Shyt.

I imagine it will be prolonged, to be honest. I already sent a message to all the parents, telling them that I'll be sending work to be done at home during this time, and that they should hand it all in when the schools reopen.

A good move. I can only hope that my senior students won`t waste this time. :)

the indefinite school suspension has not been thought through - a couple of towns unilaterally announced their own suspensions without any indication of what happens next. The negative consequences might well outweigh the effects of the virus - certainly no analysis was made of that.

And it definitely contributed to the panic buying - if the govt can suspend travel and school with a few hours notice and close private business like cinemas and gyms then of course they might close stores so you would be stupid not to do any shopping for essentials. But that created more crowds and more transmissions.

No, kids enjoy it. At least sth new and different than routine activities... :):)

Disgusting propaganda.

Would it be better to have German Hate days in Polish schools?

Things like days devoted to finding out about other specific countries is very old in Polish education at all levels.... what's wrong with that?

It's up to the parents to complain - not old exiles sitting thousands of miles away.

My kids enjoyed those activities - are some different food, sang some songs. It might be propaganda but certainly not disgusting

Not really. They have the same in the US - reciting the pledge, lessons about the constitution etc. But it makes sense - they had to make Americans out of all nationalities and kinds of immigrants. Certainly never got upset about it.

This and dressing up as a Frenchman are not the same as getting the Hitler Jugend to grass on their jewish neighbors.

Yes, exactly! Milo, can you imagine it is not only European Day propaganda but much more? Those propagandists in kindergarten are mad! Zero consideration.

E.g., they organise battery collection! Disgusting, as you said. And kids even get prizes and diplomas for that!!! Incredible.

Probably Milo meant those foreign costumes. He believes Polish kids should only wear Polish costumes. You know, Krakowiak or Warszawiak. Zero Goralenvolk!!!!

Yes! Pure Bareja1 Real Bareja is long gone but we have followers. Milo, for example. hahaha

Krakowiak

I forgot to add the picture but now I can, after maf offered a good idea:

Kindergarten kids in Krakowiak costumes. Milo, do you like them? Zero abusive propaganda.

I agree with you. Just look what those kindergarten staff do to kids. They force them to celebrate Grandma/Grandpa Day! Revolting, isn`t it?

The Day comes in January. Actually, two Days - 21st and 22nd.

Nice to see a european school filled with only white kids. Too bad rest of europe hasnt followed suit. And as a result you have dindus pointing guns at french teachers, ninjas mobbing swedish teenagers, etc. The european teachers hate it especially the french. Theyre sick of feeling unsafe at school.and constantly dealing with turd worlders antics instead of teaching white kids who actually want to learn. Naturally the french government told them to be quiet. But its the same all.over w europe wherever theres a lot of non european students.

Shocking! As all teachers of course know, themes, topics, events are truly a godsend!

It is slowly changing. Even textbooks for pre-school kids adapt to new circumstances.

This has to be satire.... so much bad information....

"Kalim" doesn't much look like he's from Congo and Abdul is not usually a first name...

How are 'wojna' and 'walka' supposed to be different?

And how many orthodox Jews would marry (presumably non-orthodox Polish women?) Orthodox Jews are notoriously clannish (outdone in the industrial world maybe only by Jains...)

This excerpt is really dumb and I feel sorry for any kid who's misled by it...

No, it was just their first attempt. Be more tolerant.

How are 'wojna' and 'walka' supposed to be different?

Similar terms but still different. Like war and fighting. So, you can have a war and it usually involves fighting, but there might also be fighting without war. Simple.

And how many orthodox Jews would marry (presumably non-orthodox Polish women?)

Yes.

This excerpt is really dumb and I feel sorry for any kid who's misled by it...

Oh, come on, give them some time. Other countries have been developing such books for centuries, while Poland has just started.

A good book.

Abdul is not usually a first name...

It often starts a name, and in some places stands alone as a given name. Means "servant of". Naming forms differ throughout the Arabic-speaking world.

Clearly the point of this book isn't to educate but to brainwash and spread multi kulti propoganda.

Yes, that`s what the nationalist site I linked to says: PiS sponsors such books to accommodate immigrants. Funny.

Wow, the government prolonged time off schools till Easter. Isn`t it wonderful? Now I will be able to spend more time with you. I can`t wait. I will give you lessons for free! Because I am a compulsive teacher - it is my whole life. I need to teach sb every day - I do it with my kids but they are not enough for me. You will replace my regular students. I hope you don`t mind. Can you imagine those long long evenings with me chatting on interesting facts about Poland and Poles? Polesess, too, of course.
