They did not invite me to this poor party., by Tereza Cristina GonÃ§alves Mendes Castro
I start my speech with the phrase of the singer Cazuza, where I see people in a work environment despising those who are not pulling bags, or devalue the less favored.
Suddenly, I see that within Education lies lies, and what I dreamed, seems to be a nightmare.
And I note that it is not only politicians who disparage education professionals, but many colleagues in the same profession, who are such, but certainly will not be left to seed, all of a sudden we will all decompose ourselves when we die and are buried .
I do not understand why people boast about the little, despise people less favored with education, say they should pull cart, does the person himself, would leave a pendestal to clean the very secrecy that leaves in the toilet? ? I wonder if in my 30 years of profession, I'm in a school without friendship, without commitment, some wanting to take the work of the other ?! I'm tired, full retirement has not left yet.
And the worst, the new governor-elect in Sao Paulo, does not want the population to study, and the ministers say that if they raise the salaries of teachers and other education professionals, Brazil will bankrupt, I do not understand, our politicians, councilors, deputies, senators, judges, have up to the 14th salary, tie aid, help for the study of children, and we teachers, many sick, readapted, with accumulated positions, and many other things, I know they still have thousands of good professionals in the area of Education. And, they also have the bad guys. And so, if we go, we are humiliated, and since many of us are not pulling bags, and want the best for public education, I wonder what our future will be like, our children, without life, without conditions of good work?
This is São Paulo, Secretary of Education, South Board 1, where I spent in schools and I have been in a long time, that often I regret the lack of sincerity, friendship that they have in it.
Even so, I am grateful for the Paulista, Brazilian, and public education, since only in graduation did I go to a Private Institution, Chemistry at the Ibirapuera University. The other courses, in the public school, where I learned to value my teachers, and colleagues.
I've gotten too discouraged today! Sadness hits my chest, and tears my heart!
Professor of Chemistry, writer, mother, daughter, wife, sister, sister-in-law, aunt. With a beautiful family, and a profession so beautiful, and so despised.
