Female Teachers Stand By While Pupils Fight
This story today raised some interesting issues. The video recording shows two female teachers at Rosehill College standing right next to some male students who start a fight, punching each other violently with other students egging them on until they intervene when one fighter dominates. The teachers do nothing to intervene.
The female principal attempted to justify the teachers’ inaction, claiming they were calling for backup on their walkie talkies while shouting at the boys to stop. No evidence of that was apparent on the video’s sound recording. The principal also said that teachers had been told to prioritize their own safety, but that if those teachers had been males they may well have intervened by restraining the pupils.
The following questions arose for us:
Whom were the teachers calling for backup? Answer: You can bet it was one or more male teachers, or if there weren’t any at that school it will have been male security officers.
What does this incident tell us about discipline in our schools? Answer: It tells us that our youth are growing up with such a disregard for discipline and respect that they seriously misbehave right in front of teachers. Feminist preference and obsession against ‘power and control’ have overridden male wisdom, so now the disciplinary consequences allowed to be used by our schools and parents are lame and ineffective. Children have been put in charge.
What does this incident tell us about modern schools? Answer: It shows us how dangerous schools have become since the adults have been disempowered and since male forms of discipline have been banned. It shows us that modelling only nice nonviolent behaviour to children doesn’t stop them from becoming violent brats.
What does this incident tell us about pay equity? Answer: It shows us that women are unable or unwilling to carry out certain tasks that they call upon men to do, but they still demand to be paid as much or more than men.
