Will soft education return to activity this coming Sunday? The secretary general of the Teachers’ Union, Yaffa Ben-David, spoke with Golan Yokfaz and Anat Davidov on 103fm about the outline for leaving the quarantine and preparing for the reopening.
Although senior officials in the Ministry of Health recently claimed that the early childhood education system would return to full operation this coming Sunday, the secretary of the Teachers Union said that “I do not know if they know for sure. Certainly we do not know for sure, everything here is really dim and no one knows what will happen. I think no one can understand what is happening with the innovation for preschoolers. “
She added and criticized: “It’s amazing not to learn from the mistakes, we were already in a second quarantine, really expected to just learn from the mistakes that happened in previous times.”
According to her, there is a lack of preparation for the opening of the education system, “it is worrying that we are not shared. That we are the field people, the principals, the teachers and the kindergarten teachers, who are actually the spearhead and are the ones who actually have to run the education system. Preparations, because unfortunately in our country everything is in the 99th minute and it is not landings, suddenly they will now open: How do you open? What do you open? Where is the preparation?
” We must prepare well, we must open in an informed manner. It cannot be heard from the media that the outlines will go over the heads of the teaching staff. After all, who runs it in the end? “
Ben-David noted that the teaching staff “want the cooperation first, because without the cooperation no outline will be able to work, the clerks in the Ministry of Education cannot be detached. The clerks prepare the outlines and they are detached from the field. , There must be a separation between green and red cities.
” I think the heads of the authorities say that too, and there are the heads of the authorities who are tired of this conduct, and they just said friends with all due respect what you decide we will decide and there were those who decided and said we will not get no students, no assistants and no teachers from red cities to green. In fact, they are making our city red. “
It is not possible to work with the accordion method
The secretary general of the teachers’ union explained that in the absence of proper preparation, there may be a situation where “there will be mayors who say we do not get red cities.” Therefore, “we demanded that there be permanent education teams. Also the protection, there is no protection for teaching staff. What’s going on? In both kindergartens and schools, let’s take a complementary teacher who walks around a number of kindergartens, this is something that should not be.
” It is impossible to work with the accordion method of opening and closing. “Let’s open in an informed, gradual way, so that there will be appropriate preparation and we will really continue and not close again,” she said.
Alongside the criticism, she stressed that “we are law-abiding, I can only say that if they decide to open as they talk about the kindergartens and I already say that there is no preparation, what will happen is that there will be severe disruptions in opening the kindergartens. This is the area, not me. And certainly teaching staff, we are all law-abiding citizens, whatever the state decides we will surely do, but as a result of the factors that will be in the field, it’s facts. It’s not us, it’s reality.
” For example, I will give an example, what are the solutions for kindergarten teachers who have small children, what will they do? There are no answers, this is exactly what happens in special education – there are many teachers who do not come to institutions and also the children because there is no arrangement and tell them to open babysitters, and teachers say what if they open in red cities, sent? Or open in remote cities. “
