I'm sorry but I'm just curious to learn which government owned school thought it would be a good idea to use EU funds to fly a Turkish citizen to teach english in Poland for up to 3000zl for 4 days worth of work per month.
It's a Comenius project, so it's designed around exchange trips. It will have cost nothing for the school to take part, and I know from personal experience that it's nearly impossible to get native English teachers to take part in these projects.
This country is flooding with language schools and highly qualified english teachers struggling to make a decent living who would be more than willing to perform their duties for a fraction of what you're claiming to have been offered. It just doesn't add up.
He's working 12 hours a week - so it's likely that he's working at least 3 days a week.
But what is worth pointing out that this is a Comenius project, so the economics are designed to support someone who is actually moving country to share their experiences and knowledge. Either way, Poland isn't paying for the project, the EU is - which means non-Polish taxpayers in practice.
Is it just me? Am I missing something? Am I being unfair here?
You are missing something - it's what Comenius is. The idea is that after he completes the project, he'll go back to Turkey with new ideas and approaches (as well as contacts in Poland) that can be used in the future to build up relationships between his school and the school in Chelm. There are thousands of teachers doing this every year - it's really nothing extraordinary.
My own school has applied for funding to take 25 children to Greece as part of Comenius, for instance. We're still waiting on the answer, but if the project gets accepted, then there will be around 200 children and their teachers from all over Europe all going to one Greek school - that's what Cominus really is.
