Furious lecture: School

“It doesn’t hurt to die, thinks Clemens Saers as his pupil has a death grip on his neck”. The quotation is from the book Clemens Saers: Lærer på liv og død (“Teacher for Life and Death”) which Clemens Saers has written with the author Knut Lindh. Clemens has been a teacher for all grades for 50 years.

Saers experienced a lack of support from his employer after his assault. That, Saers believes, is a symptom of how schools have developed after the reforms of ‘94 and ‘97. The reforms have meant that teachers don’t dare set limits for the pupils, or object to insup­portable conditions in the classrooms. Not least, it has led to a great drop in recruitment to the teaching profession. In this lecture Clemens Saers talks about his experiences through­­­out a long life in schools.

The event will be in Norwegian.
