It worked, ratbag porno principal has managed to smear others

A ratbag porno principal caught with 1500 pornographic images on his school provided laptop smeared a whole bunch of other people, including other principals, Ministry staff and Police, in an attempt to mitigate his offending.

It’s worked sort of, investigations have started looking for these people.

Top education officials and police chiefs investigated their own staff following accusations some may have sent a Northland principal pornographic emails.

It comes after the respected Northland educator admitted on Monday to having 1500 pornographic emails on his work devices – saying they were “joke” emails sent to him by friends, including other principals, Ministry of Education personnel and police officers.

On Monday, the principal – who has interim name suppression – appeared before the New Zealand Teachers’ Disciplinary Tribunal.

He is accused of financial mismanagement of his former school and having pornographic images and videos saved in his emails, which were accessible on four work devices.

He told the tribunal: “They came from principals, Ministry [of Education] personnel, police, who are good friends of mine.”

Later adding: “Some were from a policeman so I thought, ‘they’re fine, they’re from the cops’.”

His police officer friend had indicated the practice was widespread within the police force, the principal said.

However, today the police said it had no information to indicate any police officer had sent inappropriate emails to the principal.   Read more »

Principals Federation President Iain Taylor is right to be worried

…The global budget would let schools trade funding for teachers for money they could then spend on other things.

It is one of seven possible changes under consideration…

…Principals Federation president Iain Taylor, who is one of those advising the government on the review, said the federation opposed the global budget proposal because it removed guarantees around the minimum number of teachers each school would have.

The schools will be able to decide for themselves how to spend the money. This proposal will give schools choice. They can choose to spend it on staff. They do not have to trade funding for teachers for money to spend on other things so why is Mr Taylor concerned?

I believe he is concerned that schools cannot handle the choice. I think he is concerned that they will blow their teachers’ salaries on sports equipment or something else not teacher related. It seems he wants the  government to keep tight controls on schools to protect them from themselves. It appears his problem is not with the government or the policy but with his lack of faith in the Principals of the very schools that he represents. He may very well have a valid concern. After all state schools lack the financial managers that charter schools employ to manage their bulk funding. It is quite likely that many Principals are simply not up to the task.

drawingPleasant Ridge, OH Outhouse Floor Collapses, Sep 1904

About Thirty one rambunctious schoolgirls, a sudden rainstorm, and a mad dash for the outhouse. This does not end well, but does contain remarkable acts of heroism and self-sacrifice

Cincinnati, Sept. 23. — Nine little girls were suffocated in a vault, and a score of others narrowly escaped the same horrible death, at the school at Pleasant Ridge, seven miles north of this city, today. The disaster occurred at the forenoon recess, and throughout the remainder of the day the village was wild with excitement, sorrow and indignation. Tonight those who openly charge the calamity to official negligence are making serious threats, among them being many women.

All of the victims were from primary grades.

On opposite sides of the grounds in the rear of the school building are two outhouses. At recess about thirty of the smaller girls were in the outhouse assigned to them, when suddenly the floor gave way, precipitating them into the vault below. This vault is twelve feet deep and walled up with stone like a well. It contained four feet of water, which would have been over the heads of the children had they fallen into it singly, but those who fell first partially filled up the vault, so that the others were not entirely submerged.

The girls fell eight feet from the floot, and the struggling of those on top kept at least nine under water until they were dead. The frame sheds of these vaults were about twenty feet square, without windows, and only one narrow doorway, so that one girl escaped from the door. She ran into the school building and told the teachers what had happened. The principal and other teachers rushed to the rescue. The screams of the girls in the vault were faintly heard, and most of them were unable to speak when rescued. The teachers were soon reinforced by the entire population of the village, the police and fire departments rendering effective service. The firemen drained the vault, to be sure that the rescue was complete.
Those engaged in the rescue work tell of ghastly experiences. Even those rescued alive presented such an appearance as to make many of the spectators faint, but the sight within the vault beggared all description.

Registered teacher allegedly sleeps with 15 year old, gets found out, fails to top himself

Yep, registered, a teacher, sleeping with a 15 year old…and Chris Hipkins says that mandatory teacher registration will protect the kids.

A high school teacher in Tokoroa is under investigation for allegedly sleeping with a 15-year-old student.

Details of the relationship were discovered by the girl’s family and a complaint was made to police.

The male teacher, whom Stuff has chosen not to name, tried to kill himself.

“He was a popular staff member and even more so with the kids. He was what the kids would call skux [cool],” a former colleague who did not want to be named said.

On Sunday, once the relationship was exposed, the male teacher’s plan to kill himself was foiled when a passer-by found him.

Police said they cannot comment on whether certain individuals are under investigation.

The “culture” that doesn’t respect western “infidel” teachers

In Europe teachers are now forced to deal with ongoing violence and death threats thanks to their schools filling with teenage boys from a culture that has no respect for infidel men and even less for infidel women.

While I am capable of standing up to abuse and violence in the classroom (I disarmed a teenage boy waving a knife in my face three years ago) I am not prepared to be in a school that will throw me to the wolves. In today’s PC environment it is very likely that any school I would work for would hush up any incident and would force me to resign if I went to the media or demanded that the student be criminally prosecuted, if the student was Muslim. The most likely reality for me would be that I would be blamed for the attack, no matter how severe or unprovoked, and my posts here on Whaleoil would be used as evidence of my “Islamophobia”.

It is happening now in Australia and the teachers who are suffering this abuse have been muzzled by their employers who will not allow them to speak to the media. Mind you, I doubt the media will be any help as they go out of their way to ignore the culture/religion of the assailant in the video.

The Miracle of Cokeville

Some places are branded by disaster, by the stories of one horrible day that no one can forget: Oklahoma City, Columbine, and the Twin Towers. What sets Cokeville apart is that the story of its horrible day is about what almost happened but didn’t.

Cokeville Wyoming was the sight of a parent’s worst nightmare on May 16th, 1986 when a mentally disturbed man and his wife entered an elementary school with guns and a homemade gasoline bomb.  They kept all the children in a single room while positioning themselves in the middle of it, David and Doris Young began a standoff that would last hours.

David Young, a former town Marshall, he had been the tiny towns only police officer in six months during 1979 and when he was fired, he moved to Tucson, Arizona. He and his wife returned to Cokeville in 1986 and carried out their insidious plan.  Young had a manifesto called “Zero-Infiniti” and proclaimed “this is a revolution!” as he and his wife took an entire generation – over 160 children, teachers, and school staff, he held them to hostage and wouldn’t release them until he was given over 300 million dollars and a personal phone call from the President of the United States.

The heart-stopping events in this remote town — so remote that in 1986 it wasn’t on some highway maps — made headlines around the world.

Our teachers just missed out on a medal

I know you’re used to the constant teacher bashing that goes on here. That has two basic sources: teacher unions and bad teachers. The feeling this has created is that all teachers are bad and the whole education system beyond redemption. Not so.

An international study has found New Zealand teachers are some of the most professional in the world.

The Teaching and Learning International Study (TALIS) ranks New Zealand teachers fourth out of 35 countries, behind the Russian Federation, Estonia and Singapore.

It examined more than 2800 Year 7-10 teachers and principals at primary, intermediate and secondary schools across New Zealand.

Kiwi teachers did well at teacher training, professional development, autonomy in their work and networking with peers.

The OECD study found regardless of decile, quality was consistent across New Zealand schools.
Education Minister Hekia Parata said the results were encouraging.

“It shows our kids have access to great teachers, no matter what their background.”

Teachers are an essential and solid part of our society and economy.  This is why I’m so determined to see the destructive influence of unions eliminated, and the process of weeding out dishonest and predatory teachers improved and sped up.  Read more »

Teacher shakes baby so hard it caused brain to bleed (you guessed it, still registered)

Unbelievable. A teacher who shook a baby so hard it caused a brain bleed is still registered.

A teacher who shook his baby boy so violently the child suffered a brain bleed will be allowed to keep his registration.

The man, whose name is suppressed, was referred to the Education Council after a conviction for injuring with reckless disregard in December last year.

A New Zealand Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal decision said the incident occurred in May 2014, when the father was at home caring for his three-year-old and six-month-old baby, while his wife worked.

The baby boy was unsettled due to a change in routine following a holiday, and was refusing to sleep or drink from a bottle, causing the man signification stress.

“The Defendant out of frustration lost his self control,” the decision read. “He picked the victim up with both hands raising the victim above his head. He then began shaking the victim with enough force to cause the victim’s body to stiffen before flopping into unconsciousness.”
