In one of the training classes today, we were talking about dealing with multi-leveled students in class. At the very end of class:
Guy 1: `Why doesn`t the education office just level the classes into appropriate levels?`
I think this is a reasonable question.
Blond-haired 년 (an impolite term for a `girl`): `Research has shown that if you tell a teacher that these are low level students then the teacher will treat those students like dumb asses even if they are really a mixed class.`
Me: `I taught at a private afterschool academy before public school and we leveled students. They turned into quite decent English speakers.`
Blond-haired 년 (pointing her finger at me and face contorted with anger): `You`re why my students sleep in class!!!`
Wow! Issues? I didn`t know the question of whether or not to level classes was such a sensitive issue.
