I keep hearing about this Amazon thing. Maybe some day I will try it.

British school job offer

https://www.tes.com/jobs/vacancy/school-detention-director-brent-461301

Days are 7:30am to 5:30pm, with Friday ending at 3:30pm

Do you like order and discipline?
Do you believe in children being obedient every time?
Do you believe that allowing children to make excuses is unkind?

If you do, then the role of Detention Director at Michaela Community School, could be for you.

This role isn't suited to a would-be counsellor or to someone who wants to be every child's best friend. This role is for someone who believes children need clear, firm discipline. This role is for someone who believes tough love is what children need to become better people and grow into responsible young adults.

We want someone who will analyse data, organise detentions, line-manage staff, be a sergeant major in the detention room, ring parents, be extremely efficient with time and paperwork, have heart-to-heart conversations with pupils and be inspirational.

You do not need any experience, but must be willing to learn on the job. You will need reasonable spoken English, but your written English does not have to be excellent. You must also be hard-working, willing to get stuck in and own the job like it is the most important thing in the world to you.

We will train you if you are the right person for the job. So don't imagine you cannot do it. If you have presence, passion and a good voice, then we want to meet you!

The salary we are offering is far higher than a job like this would normally pay. This is because we want someone who is truly excellent. Even if we start you at the bottom of the range, the pay will rise quickly if you are good.

Sounds like the know who they want.

Except for the "obedient every time". That isn't going to happen. But it is good to expect it.

There's a reason for that.

This is not the reason

Yeah they're actually known for their rigor and getting incredibly high academic results compared to other schools. Lots of graduates go on to Oxford and Cambridge.

Of course this infuriates the progressive schools where students do stuff like vote on what classes they'll take.

"Lots of graduates go on to Oxford and Cambridge."

They opened in 2014. They had no chance to have any graduates yet. You're full of shit.
