Concern As Teachers Predicting Bad Grades For Pupils Who Don’t Play For Local Club/County
Education authorities are appealing to teachers not to penalise students who don’t play football for their local GAA club or, even worse, giving poor grades to those who play for rival clubs.
Concerns over bias emerged after a rake of Tyrone students studying in Armagh feared hardcore Armagh GAA teachers were downgrading their grades because they wore Tyrone tops at the leavers’ celebrations. Some teachers were heard goading lads from the Moy by making jokes about ‘bees’ and ‘seas’ in the aftermath of the buffet and speeches.
Additionally, over 35 Kildress students in a school in Carrickmore claimed teachers were doing the throat-slitting gesture after it was announced that teachers will award grades to pupils as opposed to the traditional exam system.
An anonymous teacher confirmed:
“It really is tempting. I know two lads from Greencastle who tortured me over them beating us in the Intermediate this year. Well, when the results come out we’ll see who’s laughing.”
Meanwhile there are concerns that the new green level travel to Israel will mean Moygashel will be empty next week going by the volume of their flags in the village.
