The $4 Million Teacher



Kim Ki-hoon earns $4 million a year in South Korea, where he is known as a
rock-star teacher?a combination of words not typically heard in the rest of
the world. Mr. Kim has been teaching for over 20 years, all of them in the
country's private, after-school tutoring academies, known as hagwons.
Unlike most teachers across the globe, he is paid according to the demand
for his skills?and he is in high demand.

Someone could do this here quite easily and we already have a system where
those with money get a better education. Compare if you will the property
tax you pay in Chappaqua to what you pay elsewhere.

This teacher also makes textbooks and lessons so the issue is drawn into
publishing and communications. No one here gets paid that much for
textbooks or some of NYU's TESOL adjuncts (and yours, too,wherever you may
teach), would not be adjuncts.

Many teachers could market themselves, and I have often pointed this out,
but they don't?

Why? You need only need to consider that many schools do not consider
teaching online or educational DVDs as something to be added to your
teaching portfolio for tenure!

I dare say that even at city colleges a rock star professor would get fired.

Baseball salaries and/or education. It isn't just what our society values
but how education values itself and how the politics of a school values
itself.

When the adjuncts went on strike at NYU, I learned how much more I could
get paid for a writing class (the same class minus teaching how to teach
it), at Stern our business school.

I teach online now privately and business students don't really have any
more money than education students, they just value education as a product
more than do our education students.

Sigh.

Tommy

PS Bad writing today can be blamed on Augmentin and codeine cough meds. Bad
thinking has only me to blame.

Dear colleagues,

My new book, Teaching to avoid plagiarism: How to promote good source use,
 has just been published by the Open University Press. It addresses
plagiarism as a phenomenon of language in use, and specifically as a
feature of the work of novice academic writers, whose linguistic and
discoursal skills are still under development.  More information about it
can be found at the link below.

All the best,

Dear Tommy,

I thought I would react to your interesting sentence that states " It isn't
just what our society values but how education values itself and how the
politics of a school values itself."  Within your three folds' perception
of a "rock-star teacher or professor's reason for accepting the politics of
 salary, how would you evaluate the social reality's influence on the way
"the politics of a school values itself'?

I have always thought that many highly qualified teachers or professors
accept the salary and the treatment they are exposed to because of the love
of the profession that they have deep inside them. An old French  teaching
methodology book entitled *Notre Beau Metier (Our Beautiful Profession) *say
it all. I also like to use the metaphor " a bird in the hand is better than
two in the bush". In any case, how many teachers who want to live a normal
life: enjoy quality family time, sports, vacations, travel around this
beautiful world want to invest their time and energy in
millions-paying-teaching business!

We should be arguing against the discourse of salaries- in- millions policy
across global social and public policies if we would like to see this
politics of millions-in-salary weakened in our global "culture
reproduction", "globalization of education", and the improvement of "global
inequality" system (Bourdieu & Passeron, 2000; Spring, 2009; D'Anieri,
2012: 300-330 ). Just my opinion - millions of whatever currency should be
used as organizational, states and national financial budget policy not as
individual salary policy. When millions becomes salaries for individuals no
matter in what capacity they serve, we may have to  fight forever for
social justice, global poverty and equal pay but may not be able to reach a
satisfactory outcome. I think there may not be enough millions to pay all
rock-stars teachers and professors or any other highly qualified
individuals if justice has to be applied to the politics of rock-stars'
salaries.

 It is all of us responsibility to argue against "social inequality" and
its patterns and processes (Marger, 2011) that the politics of salaries-in-
millions for rock-stars professionals generates . To Promote a reasonable
and dignified professional salary, professionals included "rock-star
professionals" don't need to be paid in millions.

Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for any cross-posting. The following call for papers may be of
interest to some Ed-Ling members.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

*Call for Papers, Journal of NELTA 2013*



*CALL FOR PAPERS FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE JOURNAL OF NELTA *




------------------------------



Dear All

First published in 1996, the Journal of NELTA is a premiere publication of
Nepal English Language Teachers? Association (NELTA). This journal has been
an integral part of NELTA?s mission for ?enhancing the quality of English
language teaching and learning through professional networking, supporting
and collaboration?. It is also a means towards achieving NELTA?s goal of
providing a ?forum for exchanges of ideas and experiences at national,
regional and international levels?.

The editorial board would like to invite contributions for the 2013 issue
of the journal. We encourage contributors to make their work relevant to
classroom teaching as well as to serve the larger purpose of creating or
promoting ELT discourses at local, national, and regional contexts.
Contributions that deal with ELT theories and methods will serve the
professional community only to the extent that they are situated in the
authors' own practices and/or in the contemporary educational and social
contexts. The objective of this volume is to gather the voices of teachers,
scholars, and educationists who are best able to define and advance the
conversation and practice of ELT.

Here are some broad areas that contributors can consider for situating or
relating their article:

   - *Innovative practice*: works that describe and explore how authors
   have developed or adapted any innovative methods or practices in ELT
   - *Innovative theory*: works that discuss or interpret ELT theory
   critically from local/regional perspectives,
   - *Establishing a context*: works that raise new issues of ELT that
   deserve the attention of the professional community, government, or
   society, (e.g. : 'Reconceptualizing Teacher Education in Nepal')
   - *Success story*: scholarly articles that narrate and reflect on
   successful implementation of ELT theory, method, or practice,
   - *Any other ELT subjects* that you deem relevant to ELT professional
   community.

*Articles might fall under following genres or types:*

   - *Data-based empirical studies*: articles based on the field work on
   issues of ELT, language education, teacher development or training,
   language testing and other relevant issues of language teaching. Because
   local practices have been relatively little researched outside the
   university context, scholarship that represents this area will get high
   priority for the publication.
   - *Knowledge-based perspectives*: articles that articulate a
   comprehensive and critical discussion of innovative ELT concepts.  Such
   articles must present the author's clear voice on the perspective that is
   of interest to the readers in Nepal.
   - *Action research and teacher reflections*: articles coming directly
   out of the classroom teaching or teacher's own reflection of his/her
   teaching. These can be stories in the form of narrative descriptions or
   they can follow the typical format of cyclical action research reports.
   - *Articles on classroom practice*: articles that are directly useful
   for teachers in the classroom e.g., tips for teaching particular
   skills/aspects of language, lesson plans, tasks for teaching poetry.
   - *Book reviews*: review of recently published ELT books that are of
   professional significance to the readers. Reviews should generally
provide
   a short introduction of the author and the purpose of the book, its
   descriptive summary, followed by its evaluative comments and its
   significance to the researchers and practitioners in Nepal. Reviews
should
   not exceed 1,500 words including references.

Submissions must strictly follow the guidelines provided herewith. Please
take full advantage of the guidelines which also include details of the
publication process. Manuscript must be submitted as an email attachment
accompanied by a well-written cover letter to the editorial address:
neltajournal at gmail.com or  neltaeditorialboard at gmail.com. Cover letter
email will include author's full name, institutional affiliation, title of
the paper, and any other pertinent information you might want to include.* *

Please feel free to forward this email to colleagues or to share it on
appropriate mailing lists.



THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS SEPTEMBER 30, 2013.



Detailed submission guidelines can be found online here:
http://bit.ly/15rxPsS

All enquiries and communication related to the articles for the Journal of
NELTA should be made to:neltajournal at gmail.com or
neltaeditorialboard at gmail.com
