Teacher is the person that is supposed to help the child, must make sure their student get well result. Student paid for getting knowledge and get improvement of performance. Teachers must take all the responsibility to it. And also, teacher should help slow students and not blame or scold them.
How if the student really want to learn but the teacher din't teach in a understandable way? There is no point to give a lot of homework and exercise for those student who don't know how to do or just simply done it without understand it. A good teacher can make his subject interesting and make sure his student can get good result. Teacher should find out why the student is refusing to learn, cannot say doing that is wasting time.
While it is the student's job to due their homework and study their notes, it is the teacher's job to teach a lesson in a way that the student can follow and will actively learn from. If the teacher does not teach in a concise way, or doesn't even give the student proper information, then how is the student expected to know it? If the entire class was to fail a test, or a specific question, then isn't it clear that the teaching wasn't great?

My honors chem teacher just gave my class a huge test on three chapters. She teaches really fast with barely an explanation of the work we are doing. If we make a mistake it is simply because we are behind or 'slow learners.' well I say that if we aren't learning and if the whole class is confused then something is wrong with the teacher NOT the kids. By the way that test I mentioned came back and the WHOLE class received 50 percent - no joke. So who's fault is that? The kids' who studied their butts off or the teacher who wanted us to learnall of the material on our own time!
Most teachers say they treat there students equally but thats wrong.. A teacher needs to teach according to the level of worst student in a class.. But mist teachers are not willing to bring down the level of there teaching because of ego or something. And thats whysome students fail
Even though the students may be "disrupting" the "learning environment", all they are doing is standing up to him/her. If he/she keeps going, report them and stand up to them eye to eye. Students might seem like they are responsible, but that's from the teacher's point of view because they do not know if they are teaching right, but they THINK they are teaching right. Bad teachers can effect students and then THEY are the bad teachers who keep torturing them. The cycle continues. It is only the student if they just are lazy but the teacher can be responsible because he/she can: Shout, Give detentions, unfair tests, call the students dumb/stupid, etc
It is ALWAYS right to stand up to them no matter what will happen. YOU are the other's voice to justice!
If the teacher is not able transfer some of his passion about a subject to his students, he shouldn't be a teacher.
Many of my colleagues do the job just for the $money and lots of free time(not US). No passion for teaching - Even hating to teach.
And how to kindle the fire about a toppic in a student, if your own personal goal is to do as less as possible?
It comes down to hard work. And time.
I am 26 and can conclude that primarily your effort is the main factor.
In saying that. As an adult learner i found that most teachers will put in as much effort as you!
But there are the few (very inteligent and capable might i add) teachers that arn't there to help you develop and learn. But just do there job, get their pay, and go home.
No matter how intellectual the teacher is or how qualified he or she is, if the student themselves don't realise the worth of education and how important it is for their brighter future they'll reach no where. It is students responsibility to do there hard word to their end and then expect a teacher to be good
A teacher can only so much to help a pupil/student. It is often the case that a student/pupil is just not interested in learning and therefore the teacher cannot help them. The teacher is there to teach children who want to learn, not to waste time on those who don't.
While having a bad teacher will affect your grades and the students abilities, if the student really wants to learn they will go to outside sources. Also, some people are just not a smart as others, and there is nothing the teacher can do about that. Also, there are some kids who just screw off and do not care about consequences, and they are impossible to teach.
Both the student and the teacher could ultimately have an effect on how well students are educated. While a teacher may possess certain qualities one would consider as "bad," the student could still fully learn all the material on their own. Similarly, If the student were to be considered "bad," it is by no means the teachers fault. And on that note, as I analyze the grammar and writing quality of the opposing arguments, I suspect they may be written by students who lack the ability to retain knowledge on their own. In which case their is support at most public institutions for the special cases.
You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink; you can take a fool to school, but you can't make them think.
It is a combination of teacher and student. Both have to be willing to participate in the learning process. Both have to be motivated and desire to be taught or to learn; it's a beautiful balance. If one or the other is out of balance, then the scale tips and there is failure.
Yes, there may be terrible teachers out there, but bad performance is the student's fault, not the teacher's. Some students just don't try, and when we evaluate the quality of our teachers based on test scores, it's not an accurate depiction of how our teachers are actually performing in the classroom. It is never the teacher's fault. If a student is really intelligent and, most of all, motivated, he or she will do well in a class, no matter what the teacher is like. We blame teachers for everything, it seems, but that is rarely the case.
Although the teacher can be so bad that you do not learn a shred of information, it's still up to you. If receiving a good grade in that course means that much to you then you would go out of your way to continue educating yourself outside of the classroom. A teacher can only teach you so much. If the teacher is more of a supervisor rather than a teacher, then report them and file a complaint. It's sounds harsh but this person has been given this job with the expectation that they will teach students at their best.
It can also be the student. It's not the teachers fault if they teach the curriculum in class and assign reasonable homework but the student fails because they didn't try. It's possible that the student may be going through some personal problems but that's a different story.
It goes both ways. The teacher and the student must meet halfway.
As is often the case this is a mixture. You can blame both but most of the fault can be attributed to the student; the choice of learning ultimately be given to the student. If a student is dedicated to getting a good grade then they will probably get it, regardless of the quality of the teacher. There are probably a few cases in which the teacher makes it so difficult to succeed that it is impossible, but these cases are few and far between. Generally the fault of the result comes down to the student and their studying habits.
No matter how hard the teacher plan and present her/his lesson in the right manner, if the students don't cope with her then that would be their own downfall. The students must have the conscience to learn and have the motive to learn. Their results depends on them but not the teachers
I wonder how many people in this opinion discussion are teachers, or have worked with children.
I am a teacher of Speech/Theater and no matter what I do, there are students who inevitably fail. Here are some reasons why:
1. Students do not come to class.
2. Students do not turn in homework.
3. Students do not take advantage of seminar/study time.
4. Students do not ask for clarification on difficult subjects they are struggling with.
Teachers evaluate each lesson and critique themselves in order to give the most engaging and instructional class possible, but teachers cannot control student attitudes about school/education. In some cases it is due to the teacher, but this is not the norm, and if it were, then very few children would learn/succeed.
