 Only In Italy!

"Only In Italy" is a daily news column that translates and reports on funny but true news items from legitimate Italian news resources in Italy. Each story is slapped with our wild, often ironic, and sometimes rather opinionated comments. And now, for your reading pleasure, a sample of today's edition:

Religious Studies Teacher Mows Down Students

Turin - February 20, 2009 - A religious studies teacher drove into two pupils who had behaved badly in his classes at a school in northern Italy, causing the teenage schoolboys minor injuries.

The teacher had just arrived at the school car park when he allegedly spotted the two trouble-makers and mowed them down with his car.

Colleagues were unable to explain the actions of the teacher, who they described as "mild-mannered". The boys, who doctors said would make a full recovery in five days, admitted they had played up in class when the teacher had taken them for religious studies the previous year.

"Nothing offensive or serious; just making a bit of a racket and not paying attention," they told daily the local newspapers.

The teacher has been reported for grievous bodily harm and failing to provide assistance.

Professore: "Hey cornuti! 2 Timothy 4:7"
"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."

If only those students had paid a bit more attention to Proverbs 11:14:
"Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety."

What's the general dynamic of an Italian teacher and student? The sharing and lack of space defines the relationships between everyone. Italian teachers have no personal space. In fact, they actually have no space at all.

It's no wonder that teachers in Italy feel absolutely no attachment to their students and never succeed in knowing any of their students' names. Class management doesn't exist; because the students are confined to one square space for the entire day, they become the ruthless rulers of their space.

How can a teacher set a tone when he/she is the one entering the students' space each day? (Start the car engine...)

Do you really think that the students will listen to and abide by each rotating teachers' rules and guidelines which change every 50 minutes? (Approach the troublemakers with increasing speed...)

Do you think that teachers can or are willing to develop relationships with their students, get to know them personally, understand their hardships, their learning intelligence, their home life situations? ("Boys, time to develop a relationship with my Fiat!")

In the famous biblical words of the late Pope John Paul II: "Stupidity is also a gift of God, but one must not misuse it."
