Fear Or Complacency
The area was dirty. Everyone bitched about how their clothes got all grimy just from sitting at the table.
One of the phones did not work.
The computers in another area were out for over a week.
No one said anything. Some told me they were afraid to say anything. Afraid of what, I don't know, but afraid they were. Most were just complacent. They have come to accept these conditions. They feel these are conditions they deserve, the best they will get.
All it took was a few e-mails from someone not afraid or complacent. The phone got fixed. The computers were getting fixed. New chairs are being delivered. The room will be cleaned. Sometimes I think teachers get what they deserve.
