When returned this is what I saw:
|Snoozing on the job|
Situations like this really make me reflect on the state of education here. I will likely only have one more year here and there is still much to be done. I am nearly convinced that the problem is not so much resources as it is stewardship.
Whether you have a library or one book, the question becomes "What are you doing with your book?"
I can't begin to imagine what is going on in the life of this teacher. While I seek to understand I also believe there should be a standard that should be upheld. It can be a difficult balance to strike in a city where lawlessness is rampant and thieves often take advantage of the loud rains of the season. Many of my colleagues, among the middle class that can afford more security measures, sometimes lose sleeps over security concerns. How much more these teachers?
Again, while I seek to understand I also believe there should be a standard that should be upheld. I won't solve the stewardship issues in a blog post but sometimes getting closer to the solution involves making the right diagnoses along the way. . .
