|Tim:||When market forces are all the matter, McTeaching results.|
|Liao:||Examine that statement more closely. If a market economy is working well,
callous uncaring won't be allowed to take root because it undermines success.
|Melissa:||Managers of large edu-marketing services might believe so,
but it's easy to forget many rank-and-file workers feel only marginal investment in the system.
|Satoru:||McTeaching is what happens when teachers realize there is no deep caring –
just an obession with profit, superficial quality, and speed.
|Tim:||I want to believe that pattern isn't necessary.|
|Liao:||It isn't. There are cultures with much different visions of what education is. Let's hope they survive.|
Being a teacher iz
like working atta burger stand:
all yawh haf ta do iz prepare palatable material
'n serve what customers demand.
Who cares about nutrition
if students 're satisfied?
Most folks want sugar—frosted curricula –
so whud if dare’s junk inside?
Jes smile and say,
"Hey, hey, hey – consume more please."
Economics iz paramount
'n if dah taste cums out right
most customers will seem happy:
sell what brings delight.
respond ta market needs.
Ta make mega-bucks
mega-teachers invent new wayz
ta crank out edu-junk
that's flavored sweet.
