Education

I pay you thousands and thousands of dollars per quarter for services here on campus. Yet you stingy jerks ask me to pay fifteen cents for printing!! Why?!? Was my thousands of dollars not good enough for multiple printers but it was good enough to add millions of staff parking spots!! Oh that reminds me, thanks a lot bozos for deciding to add a huge building to campus I am just going to love that big beautiful meditative view of grey blocks and the rocking construction noises during finals week. Thank you I really love it. Did you ever think abut maybe investing in any number ply toilet paper instead of that sand paper on a roll you got going on? On the subject of bathrooms, hygiene its your friend not your enemy I beg of you to please clean those filthy stalls. How about instead of...

Dear School Board, I’m sure that you are aware that many kids in Richmond go to public schools where they receive an education from under paid caring teacher but in crumbling buildings with rat infested walls. Two years ago, I went to William Fox Elementary school. Fox is a public school in the heart of Richmond. While Fox is one of the better off schools in the city, my fifth grade homeroom teacher let me know about the problems in other schools. She convinced me to attend a city council meeting where I heard teachers, parents and even some kids speak for what they thought was right. They told stories of ceiling tiles falling on people's heads, and teacher getting to school early to clean rat poop off of desks. The fact that kids have gotten injured from poorly maintained...

Hello, I am a homeschooling parent in Greenville, Ms. I follow all the rules fill out all the paperwork and do not have school during the summer months, so imagine my surprise when in early to mid June a Ms. Esters showed up at my house with 2 other workers to inform me that I was under investigation because a woman who had never been in my house and did not know me or my children called them to say that her sister my 6-year-old at the time was not in school. Now let me say again she lives in California, she does not know me and this was in June but calling her moms friend who works at CPS gave her leverage because Ms. Esters does not believe in " homeschool" her words to me.Now because I went to her supervisor who was never in the office she decided that it was her right to tell...

I do not like blackboard and I wish we did not use it. Also, I don't know what I am doing half of the time.

So what do you need to legally teach and/or tutor in China? To be as brief as possible, here are the mandatory requirements as SAFEA and your own embassy and local China consulate can confirm for you by email... {1} You must be at least 22 years of age {2} You must have a verifiable bachelor degree in any major from an accredited university. Yes, they will verify your degree. Degrees issued by these universities are NOT accepted: http://consumerfraudreporting.org/Education_Degree_Scams_Unaccreddited.php {3} You must have a certified police certificate issued by your state police or FBI proving that you do not have a criminal record. {4} You must have a legitimate Z visa in your passport that is issued by your direct employer and not a third party BEFORE you teach or tutor...

Every single day, an estimated 300 people around the world, who never taught a thing in their lives to a single student, are persuaded to "come teach English in China" and because they may be struggling economically in their lives, recovering from a broken relationship, or simply want a little adventure, say "Okay!" and then blindly follow the instructions of some unscrupulous China job recruiter who exists only on the internet or in China beyond the arm's reach of law enforcement. They are then fed plenty of hype and a pack of lies that usually includes one about making a small fortune. Here are the ten yop lies told be these dishonest job agents, most of whom have no business license and may have sold used cars in Cleveland before they stumbled into China themselves...http://opnlttr....

An open letter to Kelsey Costa, in response to her article "Let’s All Just Agree That Agriculture Is the Worst Major at Clemson": Normally, I'm not one to be offended. And I'm definitely not the type to be up in arms about something negatively spoken - or in this case, written - about myself or my friends. However, today is different. Today, I read an article about how Ag majors are loud, unclean, aggressively heterosexual, lazy, and just downright unintelligent. No, we aren't nursing majors like yourself. We're not engineers. We don't spend countless hours poring over textbooks and lecture notes every weekend to keep up with our classes. Simply put, we study the ins and outs of agricultural production in a hands on environment. Much of that pertains to the production of...

Toute personne raisonnable hésite avant de dénoncer des dysfonctionnements, surtout lorsque ceux qui devraient le faire en premier semblent s’obstiner à les ignorer. On craint d’être pris à partie, déconsidéré, accusé d’agir sous l’effet d’une lubie ou d’une acrimonie personnelle. Toutefois, l’obstination des parties prenantes à ne pas agir et à faire comme si rien ne se passait suscite une sorte de révolte, le besoin d’énoncer publiquement et clairement que « ça ne va pas ». C’est ce qui se passe actuellement à propos du Centre Jacques-Berque, unité de recherche du ministère français des Affaires étrangères et du CNRS, implantée à Rabat. Une pétition circule, dont certains termes sont excessifs, notamment en ce qui concerne le racisme, le néocolonialisme et le révisionnisme. Elle exprime...

To those familiar with the CFTU and those who subscribe to our monthly newsletter, we hope you are astute and intelligent enough to realize some clever TEFL teacher job recruiter has recently been caught impersonating our staff in an effort to portray us in a negative light with their spurious posts of fabrications. One was just recently posted here on Opnlttr.com by someone claiming to be a "CFTU Insider". How you can know they are an impostor at play? They cannot provide specific information about our office locations, details about recent events, nor even provide a telephone number for our office. To be clear we have no volunteers assigned to posting anything online which is the sole responsibility of me - their webmaster, and I certainly did not make any unauthorized posts...

I worked with the China Foreign Teacher's Union in two capacities. I was first a volunteer for over a year. I did a lot of posting for them on different websites. They would email me the link to the site and I would post what they included on their email. I also reposted articles they wrote here on opnltter over and over again. They always seemed to go after the same people over and over again. They claimed that they had investigated these people, but when I asked to see their information they said they had to keep it secret to protect their agents. They literally used the word 'agent' as if these were trained spies sent out to dig out the secrets of Nazi Germany by parachuting into occupied France in the dark of the night. I asked them to see this information with the names...
