Are The Rules Working? François Marin as a normal French teacher also is the hero in the movie "The Class." However, his class never shows the situation that the teacher is teaching in the front, and the students are listening to the class quietly. Instead of a peace class, the students ask the question one by one, and sometimes these questions are irrelevant with the topic they are discussing. Some students talk and laugh. That is such a noisy class. If that situation happens on my class, I would stop their talking and asking, and talk with their parents. In my country, the class doesn 't allow anything not related to the course appearing. However, Marin not only answers their questions patiently, also uses a tolerant attitude to face…show more content…

We know when they come back to home, then, lock the door, they could be slapped and beaten, but we have to punish them if they get over the bottom line of punishment.

Desk, chair and blackboard are shown in the screen. There is nothing changed. Eventually Suleiman is fired by school. Some students still can 't find their future way under this education system.

However, we can make the rules be better, but we can 't control the people 's opinions. I remember that I had a same teacher like Marin, and the students called her Tao. She is a mathematics teacher; she is my favorite teacher. In the math class, the clear graph was always drawn on the blackboard, and her solutions were easy to make sense. The different between Tao and other teachers is enthusiasm. In some classes, I feel sleepy, but in the math class, I am willing to keep quiet and concentrate on the course.
