Teacher motivation - Russian-style

By September 19, 2008No Comments

You may ooze bile but you will teach the chil­dren by those books that you will be giv­en and in the way that is needed by Russia. And as to the noble non­sense that you carry in your mis­shapen goat­eed heads, either it will be vent­il­ated out of them or you your­self will be vent­il­ated out of teach­ing.… It is impossible to let some Russophobe shit-stinker (govny­uk), or just any amor­al type, teach Russian his­tory. It is neces­sary to clear the filth, and if it does not work, then clear it by force.

Pavel Danilin, editor-in-chief of and con­trib­ut­or of a chapter to the new, officially-sanctioned, his­tory of Russia high school textbook.
