Diary Of An Iranian Teacher
سه‌شنبه 15 شهریور‌ماه سال 1384


I am not gonna talk about Einstein and his theory. The other day, I was reading about the accident of a truck with a seven year old boy. The boy was killed and the man was sent to the prison.

Now let’s have a three_ dimensional imaginary conversation with the affected people:

The boy’s father angrily talks to himself” The bastard must stay in jail till hell freezes over.” and the mother looking up” what have we done to deserve such punishments, God?”

(The family of the man)

Oh, God please have mercy upon us. Our son didn’t mean to kill the boy purposefully. He doesn’t deserve the punishment.

How does some one like me would react after reading about it?

“What a pity.” I can continue their conversation to a non ending point but I don’t.

Can we pass judgment on people easily and say “they should have done this or that?

When you express your opinion on something ,isn’t it  better to have a multi dimensional view in order to judge other people?

By the way, how can you relate this post with the 17 year old kidnapped girl in my previous posts?

Does money talk?

Two scenarios:

The First one,

(In a Private English Institute)

A (me)    B (The Supervisor)

B: Look, as you know teaching a language is a time consuming, nerve racking task which can’t be fulfilled overnight. (Rome wasn’t built overnight know?)

A: Yup, That’s why we need to do some modifications on the overall procedure of our methodology and   teach qualitatively rather than quantitatively.

10 minutes later

The Second one,

(The teachers are all in the supervisor’s room as we don’t have any Teachers Room)

The supervisor is talking to a new customer (student) on her joining to the English classes and here is my eavesdroppingJ

A (The student) B: The Supervisor

A:I would like to learn English but I don’t wanna attend your classes and I want an Experienced (sometimes experience connotes some other thingsJ) tutor, I wanna learn English within  3 month!!! Is that possible?

B: Absobloodylutely, Yes M’am, You ARE in the right place. Here you can learn English in a flash and bla bla bla…………..

A: How much?

B (As lan Ghabele shoma ro nadareh) please be my guest. Now because money talks every where and because you are gorgeous? About   Tomans……..

Moral Conclusion? Money talks every where when it starts talking.

Education sucks in Iran

I want to nag today:(one of my memories)
Education sucks in this irresponsible country!

In a lot of countries nobody fails and doesn’t repeat the same level but the system of their education doesn’t have the shortcomings like the ones we have:

1_payment: what should a teacher do when he/she work 60 hours a week with 30 students in each class? Doesn’t he go nuts after a while?

2_which one is better? Money or knowdelege? In this country the only thing that talks is the goddamn money? the SO CALLED Islamic government doesn’t  pay attention to knowledge though they pretend that “from cradle to grave you should go after knowledge”.

I believe that a new human being should be born as the German philosopher (Nietzsche) puts it so everything starts changing and I think we wont be modernized and I am very pessimistic of our being a” first” world country. Nobody knows how much we should suffer from being so chaotic in a big way!

Today, when I handed over the report cards to our principle in a “non” profitable school (gheir e Entefaii) the name is very funny by itself;he said that if we give these report cards to the parents they would come to us complain and we lose our rate in the district so, please give the students a kind of “project” so they do something so you could mark them up (add to their real grades) funny, isn’t it? And try not to have more than 5 out of 20 failed students in each class. Don’t tell me that I shouldn’t have done that! If you were me you would have done the same thing! Because you are going to live in this goddamn world! How nice Dono Frio the man in   Stanley Kubrics movie says: I AM IN A WORLD OF ****!  (Full Metal Jacket,name of the movie)  we are the seeds of THIS society just like the people in kubrics  movie.A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.
