KOSCIZKOVSKO, Czech Republic
A teacher in the Czech Republic has called for a law that would make it illegal for anyone who has been diagnosed with depression to work for anyone in any of the country’s public or private schools.
In a letter to the head of the education board in his hometown of Kubicek, where nearly 17,000 Czech pupils are enrolled, Professor Elvira Bocchińska said that she would take action if teachers were forced to attend classes where they were not fit.
The teacher’s letter was posted on the local Prague social network by a Facebook user named Stacey. The post, which was later shared nearly 600 times on the Czech site, also included an image of a man shooting at a police vehicle.
In addition to calling for the law that would allow teachers to take time off to take care of their mental health problems, Bocchińska said she would “make it a rule to treat teachers with special attention when they show symptoms of depression.”
Bocchińska has already written to several schools in order to pressure them to comply with her demands.
“The teachers who have alr로투스 홀짝eady expressed their views don’t know much about the mental health of their pupils, which explains why they are not motivated to take part in the lessons and don’t really understand what to do or what to say to their students,” wrote Bocchińska in an interview with the Czech tabloid Bleske Noválovské v Mesti.
The teacher, who is also the director of a private school, has not been charged with any crime.
