File photo / Forum News ServiceCox’s Bazar,Bangladesh:Marooned on a dusty slope in the world’s largest refugee camp Osiur Rahman looked to the hill where a Rohingya girl was buried in a landslide just days earlier and contemplated his chances should the earth give way beneath his feet "Our families would be killed There are children everywhere around here We constantly fear that rain could trigger a landslide" the 53-year-old told AFP on the steep embankment where he lives with nine family members in a bamboo shack For the 700000 Rohingya Muslims who have fled to southeast Bangladesh in the past nine months the approaching monsoon season poses the most serious threat since they were violently expelled from Myanmar Close to one million of the stateless Muslim minority live in the Cox’s Bazar district but the new arrivals stranded on unstable hills in bamboo and plastic shacks are especially vulnerable Representational image AP A massive operation to shore up the camps against disaster is in overdrive with bulldozers levelling hills and refugees bunkering down however they can But as the rains approach the young girl’s death this month in a torrent of mud and rock has heightened fears of a much greater tragedy There is a dearth of safe land to relocate the estimated 200000 refugees in direct danger of floods and landslides and just 21000 have been moved so far "We could literally have lives lost as people slide down hillsides and valleys are flooded with water" Kevin J Allen head of the UNHCR refugee agency’s operations in Cox’s Bazar told AFP "They could face yet again another emergency this time driven by mother nature" The camps’ makeshift homes are predicted to receive more than 25 metres (eight feet) of rainfall over three months starting June — roughly triple what Britain gets in a year Cox’s Bazar has been battered by cyclones for three years running having already suffered astonishing devastation in the past Cyclones have killed tens of thousands along the Bangladesh coast in recent decades and countless more have been swept to their deaths in floods and landslides This time nature is on a collision course with refugees who have nowhere to run — no higher ground and no cyclone shelters Nowhere to go The first storms underscored the fragility of the camps: the brief rains turned roads into quagmires crumbled hillsides and flooded low-lying areas The huge endeavour to prevent disaster has seen slopes vulnerable to collapse flattened and extensive canal systems carved throughout the camps Toilets are being fortified with sandbags to prevent a major disease outbreak should floodwater meet overflowing latrines Representational image Reuters But there are limits to how much can be done Bangladesh has restricted the use of sturdier materials for shelters because it may suggest the Rohingya plan to stay contrary to Dhaka’s desire to return them to Myanmar The roof was blown clean off Noor Mohammad’s shack in a recent squall He had gathered chunks of wood and rocks to weigh it down but was "scared of what could pass" when Bangladesh’s wild weather barrels through The Rohingya are no strangers to the monsoon he said But in Myanmar villages were built to withstand its ferocity and trees provided a bulwark against the elements "Here there is nothing to stop the wind" he said gesturing to the deforested hills stretching for miles Bangladesh has freed up hundreds of hectares (acres) but most is hilly and was prone to landslides even before the Rohingya uprooted trees for shelters and firewood ‘We will die’ Mosques and community centres could shelter 150000 people if needed said Kazi Abdur Rahman acting district administrator of Cox’s Bazar "But if there is a big cyclone and all these people need relocating there is not a system for that yet It is not possible to shift one million people" he told AFP The Rohingya who have fled persecution time and again fear being on the run once more "Everybody is afraid wondering where we’ll go if our houses are destroyed" Rohingya imam Muhammad Yusuf told AFP Aid groups say a cyclone or devastating storm could cut access to the camps for a week — restricting food and supplies to a tent city with a population greater than San Francisco The World Food Programme’s emergency coordinator Peter Guest said thousands of porters were being assembled to carry food on foot if access roads were cut Those left homeless or starving will have nowhere to run anyway: the Rohingya are encircled by military checkpoints and prohibited from leaving "What else can we do If Allah does not protect us we will die" said 60-year-old refugee Dil Mohammad This is one part of a series of readers’ responses to this week’s cover A fabulous friend recently said to me "Im just so tired of the new national pastime Beat up a Teacher" She had seen the nasty cover of Time with a court gavel about to smash an apple (a good one by the way) She had seen the title she knew was a lie: Its nearly impossible to fire a bad teacher But I think what pushed her over the edge was the subheading: A group of Silicon Valley investors wants to change that The irony drips The Wolves of Wall Street woke up one day and decided simultaneously that all the problems with American education could be solved by…firing teachers Seriously My dear friend could not even muster outrage She was just tired She saw prestigious Time as next up to bat in a long line of cheap swings at teachers Time could have written about any number of ways to improve our schoolsrestoring school funding actually ensuring equity and ending the insane and costly No Child Left Behind testing regime which has replaced real classroom instruction with tests tests and more tests Instead Time decided to write about tenure They came to the astonishing conclusion that the one critical reform we must make is to make it easier to fire teachers Due process policies like tenure exist in almost every state Although timelines and appeal processes differ the concept is the same: After passing a probationary period and satisfying performance expectations teachers get two basic things before they can be fired: (1) The teacher gets to know why (2) If she feels she is a good teacher being fired for a bad reason she gets to defend herself and tell her side of the story Thats it States continually review whether their tenure policies are fair efficient and effective More than 31 states have revised their tenure and dismissal policies in just the last few years Policies are changed all the time But the purpose of tenure to protect good teachers from being fired for bad reasons is the constant I had a hot argument with a guy who truly believed that if you were a good teacher you didnt need tenure He said "Teachers used to be fired for their religious or political beliefs That never happens anymore" His point: Only incompetent teachers are at risk His conclusion: Take away tenure because incompetent teachers should not have the right to defend themselves So I told him about Jennifer Jennifer asked me not to use her last name because she is afraid of being fired Jennifer is a Special Education teacher who talks about her students with such pride and such love But there were tears in her eyes when she told me what mandated testing did to her beloved students Parents started asking her questions about these tests Jennifer talked to me as her union leader to ask if she could get fired for giving parents information about their right to opt out or whether she could be terminated if she gave them her professional opinion about how these tests might negatively affect their kids She is right to be afraid She could get fired in some states for telling parents the truth We get questions from teachers about whether they could get fired for refusing a parents order to change a students grade Teachers all over the country have wondered if they can be fired on the basis of the now widely discredited VooDoo Value-Added-Measure which pretends to place a human child into a test tube and magically tease out all the factors that could affect that particular childs score on that particular day with the remaining numbers being the "value" the teacher "added" to the score There is of course no such equation My friend may be tired but I am not Time needs to celebrate the real heroes of our schools: the teachers who greet students every day at the school house door and take them as they come Tenure lets teachers challenge students with demanding curriculum choices and to grade students fairly based on the students work rather their parents connections It allows teachers to speak out when school districts cut corners or cut budgets Good teachers know the Blame the Teacher game is a distraction from talking about real solutions like reducing class sizes giving our students time for meaningful one-on-one instruction and funding great schools for all kids regardless of their zip code I love all my tired and frustrated friends but we wont be sleeping through this debate The public wants real common sense solutions Teachers have them if only Time would
