This morning I noticed somebody in Brisbane plaintively googling, "Why can't I get a teaching job in Queensland?
To my mind the question this person should be googling is "Why have I just realised that I can't get a teaching job in Queensland?"
Why would a person enrol in an education degree when the chances of getting permanent work at the end of the course are only one in ten?
I am wondering if the Queensland Labor government, in giving high school students computers, managed to capture their brains?
Are Queensland high school students only allowed to access sites that mislead them into thinking that there is a shortage of teachers in Queensland?
Or are the students being misled by their lecturers at uni?
Or are they simply so illiterate - or so busy with part-time work - that they do not read newspapers?
What is going on here?
Why are newly-qualified teachers so surprised to find that they can't get teaching jobs in Queensland?
