That's how teachers dress in France?

5 ( +15 / -10 )

The French do love a strike and protest. They also like to work as few hours a week as possible. French woman are hot and dress like that. Period. They also still smoke Gitantes and drink enormous amounts of black coffee. Its not rumour. Sexy.

That way of clothing might be surprising for Japanese but, I feel it's pretty normal in Europe. There is a different cultural assumption of what is show off and not.

Also, once again, I feel jealous of how French organise themselves against mala praxis and bad conditions, protecting their rights to normal work conditions.

That kind of mentality would help a lot many workers in other countries.

As mention, in USA right now there is a related movement where thousands of workers are fed up with their jobs, quitting in pursue of better conditions (normal ones).

If that’s France, they don’t even need teachers anymore…lol

Seems not even this teacher’s sexy style can keep their attention. As the accompany photo demonstrates, nearly one out of four students worldwide have not received any treatment for ADHD.

Gee, don't it suck when, like, citizens of a republic have a say in their lives?

Just saying...

A crazy government and leader trying to control the people with rule after rule. State of the country, mind you most of Europe isn’t being much better lately.

Sounds like a big miscommunication issue. The French do love a good protest and some of them have been effective before so why not? Teachers are the glue that keep society together; all places should work extra hard to give them the protection, safety, and security they need to do their job.

That's how teachers dress in France?

Yes because unlike in Japan where individuality and freedom of expression is stamped out at birth, there are places like Europe that allow teachers to dress as they please because they are you know, adults with minds of their own. As long as the teacher isn't coming in in their birthday suit or wearing anything too risque, there's nothing wrong with it. Besides, your clothes don't affect your ability to teach.

that's all, you got all the clichés ?

Schools have always been part daycare. Much of what is taught in schools isn't too relevant to most pupils. When did you last do a differential equation? The actual process is often more important.

School conditions kids for adulthood: Long, dull days, lots of work, doing what you are told and dealing with bullying. It also teaches them the value of free time. Inspirational teachers may awaken something in kids that allows them to shine in a specific career, whilst their parents are busy earning a living. It also gives kids a sense of perspective, so they can determine whether their home life (compared to that of their school friends) is typical, repressive, weird or abusive.

Most governments have tried to keep schools open as home-learning works very badly, opening up yawning chasms in educational ability. School is a good leveller, giving poor and unsupported kids a decent chance of making a life for themselves.

Most of my teachers didn't look like models, wearing off the shoulder tops and split skirts, although a couple did inspire us in ways they might not have realised. Surely everyone had at least one teacher they devoted some of their free time to thinking of.

Gakinotsukai: Like it or not, clichés and stereotypes often have some basis in fact.

Mr. Kipling: The oddballs are often the most inspirational teachers.

Zoroto,

I'd say nice, not that business suite stuff and tie stuff we have over here!

Never wore it in school until now and will not wear it!

Clothes don't teach but dedicated and qualified teachers.

Concerning the walk out, fully understandable!

Changes day after day and nobody knows what to do .... how would you react.

And at least it seems that those French teachers have some good union representation!

Agree 10005. clothes do not make the man or woman. These teachers are having a tough time with this virus going around and too many people are not taking it seriously enough. And the teachers should not have to be exposed and endangered day-to-day like this, nobody should have to work in such dangerous conditions.

And this an era of protest, we shouldn't have to put with something we know is wrong or destructive to us. I hope the teachers do go on strike, for their health and that for the children. This is no time to be playing crapshoots with people's lives, esp. kids'.

A teacher's 'sexy' style means nothing. 'Sexiness' is all in the mind. Besides, these kids don't old enough to have any attractions yet. And they don't look like they have ADHD inn the first place.

Me either. I hate to say it, but some countries like France have got their act together better in some matters, America claims to be 'open and free' but in reality it's pedantic, puritanical, hypocritical and stuffy.

A child with ADHD doesn't look any different than a child who does not.

When did you last do a differential equation?

The occupations my wife and I have both require that ability. Mostly I do regression analysis which might be even more obscure. Yes there are jobs that require advanced math. Those are the good jobs where you do not suffer from unemployment or low wages.

A teacher's 'sexy' style means nothing. 'Sexiness' is all in the mind.

But honestly, what do you think would happen if a teacher showed up dressed like that in an American elementary school?

Elementary school kids aren't old enough (until grade 5) to feel true sexual attraction. Boys and girls in elementary school level generally don't like any of that 'ooh gross' 'girlie/boy' stuff. Many Americans have such snooty puritanical attitudes about things like this because in reality their own minds are in the gutter and they ain't mature enough to admirt it. Not even to themselves. The problem (and joke) is completely on these people.

'Sexiness' is in the mind. Sometimes what one thinks is 'sexy' or 'vulgar' isn't to others. And children that age aren't older enough to notice or even care until the hypocritical puritanical standards are instilled into their minds.
