Q: RT: How to silence unruly class?

https://www.rt.com/news/426169-china-teacher-boiling-water/

 

Chinese police are investigating after a kindergarten teacher was caught on tape allegedly forcing young students to drink cups of boiling water as a form punishment.

The shocking act of cruelty was discovered by a parent, Ms Li, whose son, Xiaoming, was unable to eat his dinner because he said his throat hurt. The mother took the child to the doctor where it was found that his throat was completely raw and swollen.

After questioning the young boy, Ms Li learned that the child’s kindergarten teacher has forced him and several of his classmates to drink several cups of scalding hot water as a punishment for talking during lessons, Chinese news website The Paper reports.

The incident took place on the morning on April 26 in the city of Yangzhou in eastern China. The kindergarten’s video monitor captured footage of the incident which was published by The Shanghaiist. It shows the small children gathered in a group as the teacher stands over them and doles out the punishment drinks.

Xiaoming was forced to drink four cups while three other students drank a cup each. The child was unable to finish drinking the cups because the water was too hot.

The Paper reports that the teacher didn’t hold the necessary qualifications to teach and has been suspended from work.

She contacted Ms Li in an attempt to apologize but the mother refused to accept her gesture. She said her family is waiting for the findings of the police investigation before deciding what to do next.

Drinking hot water? I guess they didn't want to go to the hospital.

Lady where I work hits kids (teens) with a rod.

 

'Now what was that you were saying little Jimmy?'

 

 

 

 

icnif77:

Do you know why laowai must supply Non-crim record before accepted for work in China?

Previous records of child molesting is the big reason ..., IMO.

 

Now, read this part again:

 

"The Paper reports that the teacher didn’t hold the necessary qualifications to teach and has been suspended from work."

Laowai bodies must be different ...

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
