      Don't say it, everyone is an accomplice

      The story begins with an unusual parent-teacher meeting. People put their coats into the storage room with gloomy faces. The classroom is filled with a gloomy atmosphere. At this moment, the classroom is no different from the cold storage room. Obviously, no one is happy to be here.

      The principal was the first to break the dead silence, and the controversy surrounding the teaching method of...

      In the era of fighting fathers, is your child's "starting line" okay?

      Tomorrow is September 1st. It's time for students to report on the start of school, parents and babies to "fight their wits and courage", pick up and drop off school every day, supervise and check their homework, and turn on the "Superman" mode.
      Do you think that "little ancestor" is not at home, can you finally breathe a sigh of relief? Do you think you can relax your mind by handing over your child to the teacher? The following movie is really like a pot of cold water, pouring a...

      Hope to popularize AI-based education as soon as possible

      How can this be done... Also as a teacher... I feel that this is too bizarre... I can't ask the parents of the students in addition to the psychological counseling of the students... study and health supervision... and forming a parent school... and occasionally ask the parents of the students to bring the students. Come to my own career to tell my thoughts and actively encourage things... but think about it carefully, although the film is exaggerated, it seems that there are such signs in...

      A small phenomenon is a microcosm of the whole society

      More and more I find this kind of dark humorous little story more interesting. It tells about a female teacher in my party who used the relationship between teachers and students to establish a so-called mutual friendship with parents. The ordinary class, who is as small as making a cake or repairing an electrical appliance, does not have any prejudice to serve themselves, and then it is said that the parents are voluntary, and the parents also show timidity at the discussion meeting. This...

      Only the teacher is bad? What about the parents?

      I don't think parents are very good. Parents who will stand in line when things come and go are good, and their children are also popular. The same is true for children with dull or irritable parents. Are the students themselves really okay? All because of the teacher's fault? There are so many students in a class, some are good, some are good at learning, and some are naughty and bad grades. It should be said that there are parents and children. The profession of a teacher is originally It...

      Teachers use students' parents to buy things to work and receive gifts. This theme is the gardener of the...

      If the most terrifying non-spiritual character is the middle-aged woman who pretends to be an orphan in "The Orphan's Resentment", the second terrifying one is this 38 class teacher who pretends to be helpless. Of course, the most terrifying thing is that I live in such a prosperous world, and I can completely substitute for this Eastern European elementary school classroom in the era of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. As long as you have connections and power, black can become white;...

      The movie draws on many classic movies, but the portrayal of the characters is a bit shallow, and the parents' counterattack is weak. It can only be said that it is very immersive....

      [YVR-Vancity] uses stories from Eastern European classrooms to reflect the impact of centralized applications in reality. The editing is great and the heroine is great. The centralized violence discussed in the film is still a relatively direct expression process due to the genre of expression, and the operating texture behind it is not deep enough. But it's worth seeing. The relationship between teachers-students-parents is still worth thinking...

    Movie plot

    The story takes place in Czechoslovakia in 1983. Marie ( Suzanne Morali ) is a new teacher at an elementary school here. Her exceptionally strict behavior and her iron-fisted rule over the students made her uneasy when she first arrived at the school. For a long time, it has caused a lot of trouble. Mary treats students very harshly, and even punishes them physically. She vents her emotions without any scruples, completely disregarding...

    Evaluation action

    This "Ucitelka" from the Czech Republic, based on a real story, is a microcosm of China's huge group of teachers. The people behind the creation of the demonic image of Maria are actually these parents and students. They chose to endure silently without resistance, condoning and fueling Maria's arrogance. Even if some parents tried to oppose Maria's actions, they were all rejected by them. The object and even the children scoffed. The...
