Context: A Junior High School master wants to quit his job and thus he fights with his principal. The master's and his wife are having an argument. The master's wife pronounces this sentence.

Dialogue:

01:21:07,729 --> 01:21:13,168
Going against him was the reason...

1021
01:21:13,803 --> 01:21:18,908
he's given you to end of year.

Background: Japan, beginning of 20th century
Thanks!

    "He's given you to (till?) (the) end of (the) year" should mean that the principal has allowed the teacher a certain amount of time to do something. If the teacher must find a new job, perhaps the principal has allowed him to continue working at his current job until the end of the year.
