“Good school with unprepared teachers who don’t know how to use a PC?” A manager’s outburst against politicians: “I hope the hands of those who vote for you fall. Unconsciously!”

“Poor school. I hope that the hands of those who vote for you will fall. Unconscious!”. Not for thin Maria De Biase, teacher of a school in Cilento, Campania.

In a post written on her Facebook profile, the head, not new to strong initiatives, all inspired by a torn love for the school and for the teachers, speaks to the politicians with very harsh words: you have cut , without mercy, the teachers – writes the director De Biase – for the new school year foresee inefficient multi-classes, in the presence of many students with support and others in serious difficulties “. And once again: “You cut the administrative and we can’t even guarantee the usual. Unconsciously“. It also has some on the cut on school collaborators. “You have drastically reduced the number of school collaborators – he specified – danger the opening, in September, of some complex. Among other things, many of our collaborators benefit from the law 104, others have reduced tasks “. The director would write to her and publish I accused as a last resort after doing everything to get what the school needs: “I telephoned, wrote, explained…. I asked for the alms of understanding“, points out.”Nothing to do. I am the director of the ministry and I have to manage the school in the best possible way with the human resources I have at my disposal“. Then the last push, with the worst wish for those who should apply again in the next, next election: “In the meantime, you have guaranteed your pension. Bad school. I hope the hands of those who vote for you fall”.

Maria De Biase is a teacher of a school in Cilento and one cannot say that she does not have clear ideas and that she is afraid to say what she thinks, we wrote in this newspaper some time ago in an article. “He made his school an example of how the educational offer can be at the service of a healthier and more responsible society towards the environment. He introduced the synergistic vegetable garden, the repair and recovery laboratory of local traditions , composting and eco-snack (bread and oil prepared at school), his school collects the oil to make soap: for these projects of his he won the Agri Civic awards in Turin 2013 and later the European Citizen Award 2014, directly from the European Parliament He declares himself a “down to earth” manager and expressed his idea and his idea of ​​the Renzi reform in an interview with Retenews24.

Now he takes a stand against politics and politicians. However, he also has clear ideas about the teachers who, according to him, are not always up to the task. “The reform – he explained in the commentary of Buona Scuola – lost an opportunity, he said, does not give much space to teachers.who are often “lazy, idle, inept and incompetent“And asks “Why are there so many fear the idea that those who are incapable will have to change jobs?” And again: “How can I do well in school if the teachers I have at my disposal are not prepared, they don’t know how to use a PC, they refuse to attend trainings? What a good school if a large group of Teachers have been sick during the longest and most difficult days, and classes have been sent to the back? What do I do with it? Professors who shamelessly admit that they can’t stand students, define them as subjects, elements, never call them by name, because they don’t deserve that much trust? And if I’m sorry, I’ll have the opportunity to choose someone valid for the school teacher, who will be mistress, alderman, mayor “.

He admits that teachers earn little, but “it is also true that they are the only workers (except teachers engaged in high school exams) who enjoy 60 days of summer vacation. An unpronounceable taboo. Why not half of these days dedicated to mandatory training? Other than bonuses. For a month everyone went to school, universities, accredited centers to study, to review their way of teachers, to reconsider their work, including managers. Some have Gentilian and Jurassic ideas and principles that they claim to apply in today’s school. And the European standards? And the new knowledge?”

Principal De Biase insists a lot on training: “I think most teachers are very deficient from the point of view of initial formation and over the years their formation becomes non-existent. They are old employees, tired, angry and depressed. You are a teacher with enormous sacrifices, sometimes with decades of uncertainty. This sacralizes the teachers and makes them immune to all criticism. They worked so hard and now woe to those who touch them. Many teachers join the usual teaching school at the age of twenty for 40 they pretend to continue learning without updating, many of them also refuse to read an article, a reflection, a professional journal, doing enormous damage, feeling untouchable. In recent months, there has been a lot of talk about the school and the debate has mainly focused on the rights of the teachers, but what about the students? Are they subject to a minor’s right? Or do they need solid, prepared, serious, attentive teachers who care about them?

What about your executive colleagues? “After years of teaching, they come to fill a role that they often don’t know how to manage, they tend to only guarantee normal management.” “A positive aspect of Renzi’s reform? “The professions. But also the bonus of 500 euros for teacher development, even if it is a small thing. I do not agree with the tax breaks in favor of families who enroll their children in private schools and the liberal donations for the public system. I did not appreciate that the teaching of the Catholic religion was not revised”. Now the failure against the policy, which according to him and many say, had neglected the school and its needs for too long.
