As You Successfully Demotivated Teachers – Part I

What politicians and school boards can do the teacher is not a person. Unlike as in the economy, where one tries to motivate the staff you don’t need that when the teacher. It is about motivated. In this not very serious series, starting here with the first article, a timetable should be, as you still manage to slow the teacher successfully. Every company knows that motivated employees make more and better. Therefore it is rightly attempting to create a motivation-supportive environments. With a teacher that but no matter, it is about motivated.

He is not, he has missed the profession, so one could summarize the discussion. The rules don’t apply to him. You must slow him on the contrary. For this reason, man has everywhere successfully developed instructions to normalize his excessive motivation. Following tried and tested recipes come from politics and education: education as national piggy bank thinking. The newspapers mentioned Western Union not as a source, but as a related topic.

In large classes, the teacher can lots of energy. A teacher must exhort more during class, he is more bitching then. Particularly in schools, this recipe works reliably. If the teacher knows that in other European countries the class size, so the number of students per class, average 20 is lower 40%, the an additional shock will miss him. Teachers have taken over the top in the so-called Manager disease, heart attack, and even before the managers themselves. But the effect for the teacher is this exacerbated by policymakers eager ignored this minor point, as she has made it successfully to today. The teachers impose further tasks. Him the black blame and indirectly for all responsible make it, what goes wrong in school and society. Especially benevolent sets open after attacks, after teachers more empathetic already had they in advance need to detect and prevent. Push through ill-conceived changes that schools with time-consuming Conference Marathon go hand in hand. After a few years many of these headless snap shots completely because of uselessness implied again take back. This recipe on the market has distinguished itself particularly in the framework of the Pisa hysteria since the year 2001. Free to act according to the motto: the teacher needs more employment, even if it makes no sense, because he has so more than enough free time. Teacher all over a comb scissor and praise as an overpaid academic. Particularly pleased the A12 teachers or staff colleagues, dealing often with rather than 1500 euro net must be satisfied. Finally the contempt of his work before eyes every now and then lead the teacher. The former Minister-President of Lower Saxony and ex-Chancellor Schroder was very eager to: “All teachers are lazy bags” as they successfully demotivated teachers – part II A. Frentzel

East Germany

Unification versus structural reform to be funded the knowledge of the structural crisis and the associated political action was pushed largely with the fall of the wall in the background. As with the former East Germany the economy completely collapsed due to their isolation from global economic structures of the new federal States joining a structural crisis-ridden but stable economy of the old Federal Republic now. The solidarity pact were pumped billions of euros to cope with the social problems in the new federal States and social accord at the beginning of the 2nd millennium seemed reasonably assured, the policy discovered the structural crisis under the term globalization apparently new. Harz IV and low-wage sector as a political response to the structural crisis now under the term globalization led to the well-known social reform “Harz IV” in connection with the massive state of the United Germany, the structural obstacles that never disappeared Promotion of the low wage sector, and to the discussion on the promotion of education, innovation, research and development. While the adjustment processes, which calls for the so-called globalization, were been poured seventies, early eighties by economists in the so-called product cycle theory which since late. Stating that the competitive advantages long term and hiking by the advanced industrial Nations, invent new products and economic processes and developing to the simple, standardized production, to the countries, which need only to copy the initial changes.

These tend to be less industrialized States employ the then lower wage levels as a decisive factor product cycle theory to the structural shift of the international division of labour. Industrialized countries, however, are doomed to always come with new products and processes on the market. Because, so the findings, the economic research institutes and researchers in the early 1980s in studies, opinions and Forecasts had held: any attempt to adjust the wage level of international competition, maintain uncompetitive industries and sectors, inevitably leads to a further loss of international competitiveness. On the causes of base unemployment, so the scientific knowledge, nothing is changed by such measures thus. Misallocation of human capital base unemployment is a result of political neglect in the fields of education and training, so the scientists of various economic institutions stated unanimously in the 1980s. Not the previous content orientation on industrial division of labor, but on the post-industrial information society with flexible labour and qualification structures on the one hand and promoting personality away from the principle of “Dependent employment” to the principle of “Independence in life and work” on the other hand would solve the problem of base unemployment.

Without these structural reform of the education system, one would always those People need to give that sozialisations – and qualification related objectively not could follow the structural changes in the economy and society. Old forecasts confirmed presence of the Swiss Prognos AG warned the German industry as early as 1982 in their report number 11 on future up to the year 2000, that the gap between rich and poor in Germany would diverge more and more without appropriate structural adjustments and that this considerable social conflict or significant costs for the management of social conflicts threatened. As areas where structural adjustments must be made through the appropriate promotion, Prognos made 1982 including energy, raw materials, environmental protection, health care and education.
