'Oh, dear here come the school inspectors again'
Children come home from school, ‘we have been told the “Inspectors” are coming’.
It’s that time of year again, when the school is “inspected” by the KHDA. No you cannot wear your PE kit to school and must change back in to your school uniform afterwards because of the “inspectors”. Never been an issue before.
Rehearsals for the school’s production have been reduced, because they don’t want half-empty classes if the “inspectors” come while kids are rehearsing.
It’s obvious that this school is not for the children, it’s about impressing the “inspectors”.
It’s not about keeping the status quo, not putting the kids needs first. Meanwhile, what is important, things like road safety, developing and instigating practises to improve the mayhem from drop off to pick up, are overlooked. But that’s not important is it? Not as important as putting up a temporary front just to impress.
If the “inspectors” want to make a difference, why not inspect the roads, parking, crossing etc? All the teachers get stressed, kids are told to be on their best behaviour, roses get placed on napkin-covered tables in the toilets, Arabic tents are erected. The list goes on, all for the wrong reasons.
It’s hypocritical, a facade, it’s gone too far, it’s WRONG. Children first, profit second, heard that little gem of a comment before?
