The Conflict in TASCE Omu: It’s about Justice Not Money

September 15, 2012 at 4:22 am (Uncategorized)

There has been so much noise in Tai Solarin College of Education, an institution targeted for extinction. The noise is not being generated by the catalogue of unjust actions and inactions against the people that slave tehre day in day out. Instead, the noise comes because the people have decided to take their fate into their own hands and have decided to ask the Management to vacate the school premises and go to the employers and negotiate with them until they can come back with news that reassure the workers that they are a part of the state.

Teacher, What Do You Make?

December 14, 2011 at 6:37 am (Uncategorized)

For my fellow teachers out there!
From A School Principal’s speech at a graduation..

He said “Doctor wants his child to become a doctor………
Engineer wants his child to become engineer……
Businessman wants his ward to become CEO…..
BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them..!!!!
Nobody wants to become a teacher BY CHOICE” ….Very sad but that’s the truth…..!!!

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.
One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued,
“What’s a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?”

To stress his point he said to another guest;
“You’re a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?”

Teacher Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied,
“You want to know what I make?
(She paused for a second, then began…)

“Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can’t
make them sit for 5 min. without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.

You want to know what I make?
(She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them how to write and then I make them write.
Keyboarding isn’t everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math.
They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need
to know about English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they
were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life

( Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.)

Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn’t everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make?

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ALL YOUR LIVES, EDUCATING KIDS AND PREPARING THEM TO BECOME CEO’s, AND DOCTORS AND ENGINEERS……….

What do you make Mr. CEO?

His jaw dropped; he went silent.

Whereas some countries like Japan can offer their citizens 82 years life expectancy, Nigeria offers you 42. To say it mischievously, after 42 you are free to go. Even at that there are so many factors made in Nigeria waiting to take som time off your allocation. Read full article. Click on title on right pane.

I have often wondered how leaders manage to keep tabs on so many issues that call daily for their attention. Not everyone can multitask or do so effectively. So I found myself wondering how President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe (this name is the outcome of Dora’s misadventure) Jonathan copes. Read the full article. If you are on a mobile click on full site!

Why I Am Backing Governor Amosun to Succeed

October 3, 2011 at 4:47 am (Uncategorized)

contrary to what some might think, i am still backing Governor Amosun to succeed. We cannot be flimsy people and call for change and not see it through. but I am not also party to blind followership. Thai is what I did with OBJ. I did not even believe he wanted a third term even in the face of glaring facts. I am done with that type of followership. i want this governor to succeed but I have terms and conditions too.

witches…witch hunters…tasce…tasued…beer parlour analysts

September 27, 2011 at 3:53 am (Uncategorized)

Last week, the Panels set up by Ogun State government finally arrived the schools. Since then it has been all manners of talk and analysis. people are apprehensive and hiding it well. Some fear, some hope depending on where they are, what they have done, who they have backed and who they are associated with. most speakers are cautious because statements have to be backed up with facts and sources. But not in a beer parlour. You can say what you please and back up with what you know is untrue. Who will investigate? Stupor has its values.
If you do not like to open up your mind, quit now. If you want to go on, find the article on the right pane…between TASCE and TASUED: hunting facts …witches…and beer parlour rantings.

Did Dbanj Read Oliver Twist or They Told Him About It?

September 3, 2011 at 1:01 am (Uncategorized)

now, there is this huge noise about Dbanj’s new video song, I Have a Confession’. NBC has banned the song. Very well, why would they do that? We read that it is because he said something about Omotola Jolade’s ‘yansh’ being bigger. this article does not pretend about anything. it is long and engaging. if you do not want to hear a strong opinion, do not read it.

Since the day forner speaker Tunji Egbetokun brought down the gavel nullifying the handing over of some secondary schools to their original owners, there has been no let-up in action.If the reasons are genuine or mere witch-hunting, it remains for everyone to speculate now and judge more precisely when this is behind us. This article takes a close look at what has happened in Anglican Girls’ Grammar School, Ijebu Ode. Find the article on the right pane. Please leave a comment so I will know you came here.
