The teachers always get the blame for the worst performance of students in the classroom, but in fact teachers are not the ones to blame alone.
The debate about student’s failure is stronger than ever with so many students in the school fail to reach their educational goals and get good grades to satisfy their families who invest in them for their future. When do students fail to deliver the results they are expected to, who is to blame? Is it just your teacher’s fault that the child is performing poorly? A survey in America revealed the 41% people said yes to the above question and thought that the teachers are responsible and to be blamed for the poor performance of children. While 59% say that only teachers are not responsible for poor academic performance. Let us explore a bit deeper into the issue and find out who is to blame actually the lower performance of students.
The Teacher’s Fault
The students go to school expecting to learn but if the teachers aren’t qualified to do this then the students don’t learn. Some schools do not care if they are hiring the best teachers to provide quality education to the students, they just hire the substandard teachers who have no clear idea of what to deliver and how to deliver effectively. If the teachers are not fully qualified to justify their position in school, the students cannot learn. If they do not know how to teach and make an impact on the students, the teachers fail to deliver what is expected of them. This leads to the downfall of the modern society. Even if teachers do not get all the blame, they do deserve some blame.
It Depends on the Situation
In addition to the teacher’s failure to deliver effectively, several other factors contribute towards lousy grading of students. Sometimes the students do not participate in the class because they never take classes seriously. Sometimes they do not understand the subject matter and do not ask for help; that goes hand in hand if the teachers are bad too who do not care about the welfare of students. Therefore it is hard to set clear expectations for students as well as from teachers, the situation describe who is to blame for the poor performance of students.
The Youth Psychology Plays an Important Part in Success
Most of the students in the school or college are young who do not have a clear perception of the world, and their minds are not fixed at a point where they can perform well in every subject and take a proper interest in it. They do not have a clear identity of who they are, the common psychological problems prevail in the modern world more consistently, and this leads to the failure of students in the class. Most students become a part of the aggression, depression, some are not emotionally well at the age of 18 and cannot live confidently in their families. It is hard for them to concentrate on the subject matter with psychological diseases which call for treatment rather than neglect; they become a victim of unfair treatment or others.
The only way to solve this problem is to focus on the mental well being of students and provide them a chance to grow up smoothly. Being with a good teacher is favorable for their development but not the only-requisite for their success. For achieving long time and long-lasting success, the students also need to become mentally confident.
Some Teachers are a Load of Problems
Some teachers are distorted, and they are a load of problems themselves; the messy teachers cannot provide a clear point of view to the students. They cannot afford proper attention to their students to solve their complex issue and guide them towards the path of success. These teachers are not able to motivate the students in the classroom not they can guide them also to study thoroughly. Some teachers do not even care who is missing in the class and why are they not coming to the level.
Teachers and Parents are Jointly Blames
We have talked about the bad teachers and bad students, but what about bad parents. The role of parenting is vital for the cognitive and academic growth of children in the early and teenage years; if they do not get a positive environment at home due to bad parenting, they never learn the art of responsibility and unbiased thinking. Fighting parents at home cause enough trouble to students who lose their interest in the study and lead astray. Joining the street gangs instead of taking part in the education is the reason for lousy parenting.
