Agradecendo ao V. Teodoro a referência. Como se vê, a solução não é nada que não nos tenha ocorrido por cá (excepto aos decisores).

Federal relief funds can provide a down payment on long-needed investments in the education workforce

O Facto De Não Ser Apenas Por Cá…

… apenas serve para demonstrar que o modo de “governança” dos recursos humanos na Educação se globalizou e transversalizou, de acordo com a lógica da erosão do investimento nos serviços públicos. E que é comum a governos de Direita e de Esquerda, ou que ainda passa por isso. Por cá, a culpa não nasceu com a troika. embora queiram fazer acreditar isso a quem perdeu a memória ou não a chegou a ter.

Teachers all over the country describe problems that touch every aspect of our culture and society, from technology dependence to stats-obsessed bureaucracy to a post-COVID behavior crisis.

Why Most Teachers Who Say They Plan To Leave the Profession Probably Won’t Do So Anytime Soon

(…) Based on our research, we think it unlikely that most teachers who say they plan to leave teaching as soon as possible will actually leave this school year.

In one stunning example, the National Education Association surveyed about 3,600 of its members in January and found that 55 percent of respondents said they are more likely to leave or retire from education sooner than planned because of the pandemic.

“This is a five-alarm crisis,” NEA President Becky Pringle said in a statement, adding that the staff shortages in schools have left teachers burnt out and unable to give students the one-on-one attention they need.

You Just Can’t Tell the Truth About America Anymore
