Educational Inspector

Educational Inspector- an art work by T Newfields So ya think yer kompetent ta teach, ehh?

Well, let me inspect yer kredentials
& make sure yer workin' in approved ways.

Zis record shows ya don't support school policies –
yer supposed ta be a model & demonstrate conformity.

This document suggests yer outspoken about many affairs –
good teachers are silent 'n defer to the Chair.

This video footage reveals ya laugh lots in class.
Teachers must be dignified – not crass.

This report suggests you enjoy irony & guile
yawh should be more diffident & maintain a smile!

For our government you have expressed disdain –
good teachers are cheerful & never act that way.

Are you qualified ta teach
& guide our precious youth?

The data suggests yer basically trash –
another job iz better fer you.

A custodial position starts next week –
since yawh have no business teaching
kunsider that seriously.
Melissa: This poem is grossly exaggerated.
Tim: Perhaps. But beneath the veneer of politeness, it is surprising how gross humans are.
Liao: And like it or not, teaching is inherently political.
