my comment was a joke but thanks for proving it anyway
I was trying to prove that teachers DO have a sense of humour! Failed, obviously!

How can you be a badly paid teacher in Switzerland? Name and shame the school.

Since we're totally off-topic anyway, here's my list of reasons why teaching is a brilliant job:
Alright, but where is the transexuality in that?

The same place parents' competence to judge education professionals is. Keep looking.

Nowhere. Transsexuality was barely relevant to the thread at the beginning, let alone over the last three pages.

Who cares? The OP has left the building, the volleyball team has a pretty new coach, everybody is happy.

So what do you do for a living, Phos, and do you enjoy it?

Oh, so teachers are beyond reproach.

Something tells me I'm not the only one on this thread who has had squirmy parent- teacher meetings.

No, I am super happy with my pay, 3 times more than what I was getting in England! (Can ANYONE on this forum get sarcasm??).

From ignorant people parents included, yes. In your profession too, whatever that is, ignorant people are asked by me höchstpersönlich to keep quiet.

I don't listen to parents, I listen to students. Far more rewarding and far more professional in every possible way.

Re: Transexual as a coach

Since we are massively off-topic, and there seems to be teachers on this thread, I've been wondering what your perspectives are about the Swiss school system. Is it as good as its teachers make it out to be? If it is, how is it that Switzerland is not generating the expertise it needs to compete in the world, and have to bring in expertise?

lol... do you know what "demographics" are, Phos?

Very successful powerhouse of a country + small population = deficit of expertise.

It has nothing to do with the schools not being good enough, because they clearly are.

It has nothing to do with the shcools.... exactly. Its wealth generated by international industries, by an international workforce. What does that have to do with the Swiss school system? Because the flag is red?

You should get out of Zurich occasionally, Phos.

You might learn something.

Re: Transexual as a coach

Transsexuals are NOT trannys- FGS! (and I am sure you know that).

The youngest I know, who had reversal at 19- you would never ever know- the voice is perfect, no male features at all, and she has very dainty hands and feet (usually biggest give away). Just looked at ther FB page and she has shaved her head- looks just like Sinead O'Connor.
