Left. Right. Wrong. Right.
It makes no difference when you’re a teacher.
Teachers need to stay out of politics. We need to keep our politics to ourselves, regardless of the temptation to influence or indoctrinate our students.
I am all for better treatment of refugees, but that message is a political one and teachers shouldn’t let their politics mix with their basic responsibilities – to teach the curriculum and to look after the students’ wellbeing.
I want my students to make their own minds up about social issues and come to their own conclusions.
I would rather my students think for themselves than think like me.
HUNDREDS of Victorian primary and high schools teachers will wear pro-refugee T-shirts in classrooms as part of a national push to close offshore detention camps.
Organisers say school-based action will shine a light on refugees’ plight, but the state Opposition has criticised it as “political indoctrination”.
Up to 500 teachers at 30 Victorian schools will don T-shirts emblazoned with “Teachers for Refugees — Close the Camps, Bring them Here” and hold “informal discussions” in class from Monday in a stance backed by the education union.
