Festivities are afoot!

From the Cardfightback Team: A healthy dose of good tidings to all educators and teachers out there in classrooms manning the trenches in the face of attacks from all sides.  You are an inspiration to us all.

Whether from your students, your bosses, parents or senior executives, for all those teachers who have: been bullied, had bad things written about them, had emails ignored, had requests turned down, been blocked from getting a job, been fought for compensation, been lied to, been targeted for retaliation, been harassed for trying to gain some accountability, had your reputation poisoned, been put on fake performance management procedures, had information deliberately withheld from you, had your mental health questioned or any other number of deliberate tactics used by some people in positions of power – keep up the fight!

There will be many people out there who feel threatened by your new found empowerment and who will stop at nothing to make sure you don’t succeed.  Remember that they love the status quo because it gives them a feeling of superiority and privilege.  They don’t want you to fight back because it threatens their position.  Common  things we hear from contributors to this site are: “you brought this on yourself”, “you should just shut up”, “you’re ruining it for everyone”, “you’re the only problem in this school”, “you’re just a troublemaker”, “you’re just whining all the time”, “everybody hates you”, “you deserve what you get”, the list is long but they are all comments made to weaken your resolve and determination so that the status quo is resumed.  Master doesn’t like dissent in the ranks.

Victim blaming can be powerful but only if you let it be so.  Refuse to accept that which is wrong and continue to stand up for that which is right, no matter whose nose is put out of joint on the way.  The more noise coming from certain quarters will let you know how well you are doing.  If people are confident they are generally quiet.

So well done for seeing out another year and best of luck for those like us heading back into battle next year.  We are here to help anyone that needs it, we don’t pick and choose because we know how dire the consequences can be.  Happy New Year and let’s start with a bang in 2013!

CFB Team.

    I just want to say I am very new to blogs and honestly savoured your web-site. I’m definitely planning to bookmark this site . You’re amazingly honest with your article content. Thanks for revealing everything.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a superb article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done that I should. this blog has given me the motivation to start sending Freedom Of Information requests and I hope to find out as much as other people. thanks again.

    Your website is fantastic reading and getting lots of visitors per month I see. Bravo! I too was fucked over by senior DET people and eventually left the teaching profession as a result. I’m so happy I’m out of that place, those people are poison. It’s brave people that take on these public service gangsters but a big round of applause for your team for doing it. We’re all watching and hoping you score some victories and out more of these unaccountable bullies to the public. Take care and watch your back. 🙂

    just wanted to comment and say that it is a very interesting post.

    This webpage doesn’t show up appropriately on my iphone4 – you may want to try and fix that – otherwise its a great idea. Wish there were more like you: punchy, irreverent, takin no shit, tellin it like it is. Cheers.

  7. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  8. Under the Radar says:

    My career was ruined by the bastards in DET! I will throw a party when I hear some of them have strokes and hear attacks. And no I will not be sending flowers.

  9. Hopeless says:

    The AEU NT are hopeless just like many other orgs up here. I wouldn’t depend on them for anything, there just too cozy with the enemy.

  10. Lord of of da Flies says:

    On the First day of Christmas my true love sent me a bullying CEO dressed in a monkey suit, on the second day……… a DSP with xray vision, the third day……… an invisible AEU rep, the fourth day……..a curriculum guru with a sound pedagogy, the fifth day……….a dodgy old education minister, the sixth day…… a ranting religious freak, the seventh day…….well on the seventh day….?

  11. The Destroyer of Worlds says:

    No wonder we are being crushed when we have people saying we are not that type of union (AEU). Too many old farts not wanting waves, like the last Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, the Young Turks are coming. We will take on the AEU and DECS, or is the AEU a part of DECS? Heard a Deputy CEO says ‘let them eat cake’! I say on to the Bastille!

  12. I am still here you bastards says:

    What those people who have festivities all the time and bring the party to work? There is a lot of gossip about people in high places being drunk at work! They then have some ‘dutch courage’ to bully, intimidate and sack people. You know who you are. Nothing but scum. Breath test them all!

    Good on you CFB Team, I was called a conspiracy theorist the other day in Darwin because I dared to question the way things operate in a department that constantly changes acronyms. I am not taking up the a**rse from a bunch of p**cks!
