Q: Cultural Revolution,,,, Take two,,, and,,,, action!

Last week during Final Exam I was verbally assaulted by male Ss (20yr ish), cursed, and physically threatened, pimarily thru body-language, u know the in my face screaming bit mixed with the flexing of muscles, and the making of fists set off with a bit of the jumping around and false lungeing a bit. What really showed the physical threat was the actual punching of the cement wall.  Soooo,,,  to make this into a question,, has anyone else experienced this?  If so we could go into how the Cutural Revolution has really just been tamped-down over the years but is always right there under the covers, waiting to raise it's ugly head once again and engulf China in a withering bloom of random slaughter.  Thoughts/Comments?

At my last private joint, student repeatedly cursed in English during the class, and I sent him to a teachers office and banned him from entering the class for that day.

I told my boss, I warned every class that English profanities won't be tolerated during my classes.

However, boss (owner) tried to convince me, mentioned student should be allowed back in the classroom. 

I agreed with another condition of mine ...

Next time any student will curse during my class, I will exit the classroom and stay in the teachers' office for the duration of the class.

 

I told my boss, I consider that matter (no English cursing) entirely Chinese teachers responsibility.

 

Soon after, it was the end of semester and I exited China for good. June, 2017.

Boys in particular are extremely frustrated. The time they spend that isn't in supervised study is spent looking at dumb shit like tiktok or playing games. Through these they discover that their life sucks then like all kids need to test the boundaries and see how far they can go. It makes them feel they have some control over their lives.

Their frustration is stoked by the nationalistic propaganda and victim mentality perpetuated by teachers, media and authority figures.

I know this sort of kid isn't usually a high achiever, doesn't bathe enough and isn't going to get laid forwithout paying for it. Their future is entirely dependent upon the goodwill of their parents and they know it.

I used to be triggered by this sort of behaviour and the touretts - like outbursts of profanity but don't give a crap now. I pity them.

I got into a fight in class once. Well, not really a fight because I didn't hit back (oooh how I would have liked to though) but I had to subdue a little f**kwit that full on attacked me. I was pretty sure his sneering c*nt of a father encouraged it.

 

Teachers getting assaulted.. from what I've heard that's pretty normal these days wherever you go. Well, maybe not 'wherever' you go but still lots of places.

 

You read about it pretty regularly in NZ media. Teachers complain... Kids are feral, hey society, this isn't good enough....from a young age they're attacking teachers and other kids - sometimes with weapons -  and the teachers pretty much aren't allowed to do shit about it.Their parents are usually even worse. Everybody says things like 'back in my day this never happened' and 'what has society come to'... but nothing ever happens to change it.

 

It's a sign of the times Divedude, who'd be a teacher eh.  At least Chinese kids aren't walking around with guns though, imagine how scary that would be.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
