Weber suffered because of the truth
A graduate of the 90-ies Anton Harakas today specially came to the College to support and protect his former teacher that they boys were called (and continue to call) Weber (short for “Victor Miller”).

During my studies of him have never heard of aggressive statements towards us, teenagers, in spite of the fact that we are very naughty in the walls Alma mater — he recalls.

Victor B. in College he worked in 1978 and went through five Directors. He first taught mathematics, then he led the student Committee and before the time of dismissal he worked as a Deputy Director on educational work. The problem had escalated with the arrival of the current Director, who was appointed by the regional Ministry of education a year and a half ago.
One of those who signed the letter to Prime Minister Medvedev, honored teacher of Russia, honorary worker of secondary vocational education Nina Belova says: “Believe the person is highly professional, I can confirm this because he worked with him 40 years. And all of a sudden it became objectionable, do not fit into those norms which decided to install the new head. My colleague got a flimsy penalty and try for the first time to dismiss him to reduce staff looked strange, but didn’t. Director, came into confrontation. I think that this is totally ending! Atmosphere in the team is now very hard, all sitting in the corners and don’t know how to react to it. We will soon have accreditation of the institution, and we can’t do business. In an atmosphere of bureaucracy, which covered our education, we do very unusual feature. Live on starvation wages. The cleaning lady and she gets more, and we are required, as in the center for space research»

His colleague supports the teacher of the highest category Tatiana Kirichek“A new Director came, and somehow started differently. Began to leave highly qualified specialists, as the requirements of the Director they did not understand. My personal opinion is: Makarenko suffered for the truth.”

What started the conflict
He Makarenko explains the background of the relationship with the boss: “there is different views on solving problems, I just said, “Dear Lubov, you were in charge of state-owned institution in this important field of work with children-orphans, and now you came to lead in the budgetary institution and your former sponsors in the metallurgical technical school you will not go! Here are the other financial bases and administrative pressure of success can not be achieved””.
40 years of excellent work in College Victor Khristenko has earned a full set of teachers ‘ regalia and awards. However, in January 2018, he received two reprimands on the basis of which is January 30, he was fired.
“I believe my rights have been violated, and have hope of a trial. His dismissal, I communicate directly with an appeal to Moscow”, — said Makarenko.

The formal reason for the employment sanction from the Professor was the failure to comply with the “recommendations of the regional Ministry of education”. The Commission Department a few days worked at the College, responding to the first letter of the team about the lack of indexation of wages. “The recommendations are not binding, this is not a Directive, not an order. Unfortunately, the Rostov, the Commission decided not to meet with either the team or with its individual members”, — commented on the situation Makarenko.

The struggle for historical building of the College
The graduate College Anton Harakas in the dismissal of the commercial Makarenko sees the lowdown: “it is possible that someone tries to take out the leader of the institution, to deprive the College of the regional cultural heritage,” he said.
This opinion about the developments are not unfounded. Anton Harakas remembered that in the 90 years, in front of the College is located casino, which had views of the building, but the initiative group headed by Viktor Borisovich “repulsed” claims on real estate.

The mansion located on the Central street of the city of Taganrog and is a desirable target for many structures. Battle for elegant structure arise periodically. Once the judicial organization, remembered that in 1861 there was originally a district of the don Cossack court. Once there is such information, then there is requirement to return the building to the court. Defenders of College was lucky: the court settled in another place. Were and remain today, social claim to the College (and therefore the building) at the don state technical University (DSTU). Reference University of the region have already absorbed Polytechnic College of Taganrog, which has lost independence and is now a branch of the DSTU. Exactly the same perspective drawing and TMT.

Backs up the desire to repurpose the building of the metallurgical College and the fact that several years ago the city authorities promised the transfer of Taganrog Chekhov gymnasium.
“When all around our building there was a tension, we are consolidated, the team gave me the right to protect the interests of the object. I have a mandate to represent the interests of the College in all departments, attended high offices. Then time was on our side, we managed to defend the independence of the institution,” — says Victor Makarenko.
