Recently I got the first part of a new memorial blog we will make to cover the death in residential schools in Canada. Well I am a Dane, so why am I hosting this blog. Do I have anything against Canada? No I have no part in the fight over Hans Island. I am involved because the blog just have to be located in another country than Canada. Some of the deaths seem to be result of a cover up, so for the safety of the local researchers, the blog is published from Denmark.
The address of the blog is Enormous Loss
But this is not the only new blog.
I have also been allowed the privilege of hosting a critical blog about Danish boarding schools known as efterskoler in Danish. Why am I doing that?
For two reasons!
- First I am a manager of logistic in my private work. I find it increasingly difficult with the human resource area at work. Human resource in Denmark covers a beer after work every Friday and a development meeting lasting 5 minutes every second year. There is only that much an employee can be developed in a country where your future is given due to your social status at birth. I get applications from people who cannot drink a beer after work due to claimed religious reason and this number has increased over the last 20 years. How can you make them a part of the team if they won’t spend time with their co-workers Friday after work? It is impossible. These boarding schools are to blame because they don’t allow the students to socialize as in high schools where there are Friday bars on campus.
- They have moved into the market which used to belong to foster families and group homes. However they don’t have the skills to be in that market. Where are the counselors? Where is the therapy this kind of students need? It doesn’t exist.
Here is the blog I am hosting: Den kritiske Efterskole blog (Danish language)
