Teachers deserve more credit, plain and simple. After spending the majority of my life submersed in education, I find myself disgusted with the lack of awareness people have towards teachers. Not only are they mentors for youth, but they also handle every behavior known to mankind and are not paid nearly enough for their efforts. In my opinion, teachers should stand at the top of the scale when it comes to respect, and unfortunately, that is not the case. Once children begin Kindergarten, they spend more time around teachers than they do their own parents.
Students are often lectured about the importance of acting in an ethical matter yet most of the time those around them, such as, parents, teachers, and administrators do not follow their own advice. There is someone who will look up to their teacher; students learn from the adults that surround them. This leads to students believing that it is okay to act in an unethical manner. Everyone is guilty of not doing the right thing; everyone has flaws and it is somewhat naïve to believe that we can have a perfect society where everyone is righteous. Yet, it is still extremely important that students receive the necessary education to prepare them for the world out there, and teaching the students good ethics and character is a great way to start.
Most students like this type of teaching style just for that reason. The detached style of teaching is a teacher that isn’t welcoming to the students but also isn’t demanding. These teachers don’t provide the extra help and support that children need in a classroom setting. Most students don’t like this teaching style and aren’t very successful in classes where a teacher has a detached teaching style. Lastly, the authoritative teaching style is when a teacher has clear-cut standards and rules for the children to follow.
These three factors, based on trust, allowed both Erin’s and Jamie’s class to flourish. In both schools, the faculty did not trust the students. Because of the lack of trust, the students did not trust or respect the faculty back, since the facility did nothing to earn their trust. This environment led to disciplinary problems as the students tried to work the system to their advantage. In both schools, the lack of trust between students also contributed to a series of fights and other disciplinary problems.
In this chapter, we discussed the numerous challenges that teachers face while teaching students with different disabilities. It was found that barring a few teachers who had knowledge of the exact needs of these students, majority of the teachers deployed methods that they felt would assist learning for them. Modifications in teaching methods were undertaken based on the nature of the students’ disability and the demands of subject taught. In case of some government colleges, parents were reportedly assisting in the laboratory due the absence of support staff. In the case of students with visual impairments and/or learning disabilities, repetition was found to be the most favoured method to explain everything, from diagrams in economics to sociological concepts.
The behaviour of the pupils of the former Deane school at times were acceptable but most of the time was uncontrollable. The problem was that the teachers could not control the pupils in class and also the pupils had no respect for the teachers. This wasn’t all the pupils this was just quite a large percentage of pupils that couldn’t behave well for a school. This must have as a shock to you as I stated before that it was going to be a difficult job to transform the school. Another negative aspect of the Deane school was the amount of supply teachers that were covering the lessons for teachers off sick or had left due to the fact that they had enough or had been offered a better job at another school.
It is often as a respectful but thankless profession with many believing they are not paid enough. In our society, much is asked or expected of teachers – especially in stages of early learning. For example, at the elementary and secondary level, they may spend a lot of time as disciplinarians and/or a social workers.

Plagiarism is an extraordinarily large topic these days. Many teachers are spending hours slamming the thought in students’ heads that plagiarism is evil. Teachers have lengthy lectures and some even make their students write a report on plagiarism. Most teachers have a strong, negative opinion about plagiarism, but a student’s perspective can be entirely different. Plagiarism is defined as “an act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of the author’s work as one’s own, as by not crediting the original author.” Instructors and teachers seem to know the narrow line between plagiarism and honestly using your own work.
He says that especially political figures are ignorant, and they complain about kids not doing well in school because they do not support the school system with books and good certified teachers. This explains the attitudes of Mike Rose’s friends in “I Just Wanna be Average,” because they know why they are not receiving a good education and they were not likely to get a good paying job when they graduate. One of these reasons is that they do not feel like they need to try, then why they need school. They just want to fit in and move on. They accepted the fact that they were placed in a very low-grade level in school.

To conclude, abuse is a horrible thing for children to go through, but with corporal punishment active in schools across twenty states, a staggering amount of students have no choice but to suffer at the hands of their teachers. These students face a litany of punishments from paddling, to padded rooms, to electroshock therapy. This is often administered by unprofessionals who are more likely to harm the children than to help them, despite the fact that these are people students should be able to trust and look up to.
