THOSE WHO CAN’T DO TEACH

Image result for teachers

“Do or taught to do.”


TEACH THEM WELL

When you are learning from an educator to use what you are taught to pursue in a career field do you ever think to yourself to how come they didn’t pursue while they are teaching you. Because they have all this knowledge about how to do something but they are never in that career. It’s like teaching someone how to cook, but for some reason you have never pursued a career in cooking. You would think that in was in them to do this as a career. But the reality is that some people don’t have the ability to fight for what they want, so they teach you to do so. But is it always like that, just so cut clean and dry.

THEY WERE ONCE GREAT

You would be surprised how many people were globetrotters in their career field and are now college professors. They worked for twenty or thirty years in their field and are now interested in teaching a group of next generation business people. And not just business, sometimes in the medical field or some other field where they have the expertise to aid in a collegiate course. But is it always about college students? Some teachers come back and teach a group of high school kids. And to add to it, are teachers always in classrooms? Professional athletes who are no longer playing have been known to go back to universities and coach. These are teachers as well, just a different specialized position.

THE ASSUMPTION OF TRUTH

We can always assume that since someone is teaching they are not willing to pursue this as a career. There are plenty of people who worked in the field as well as people who just have a love for the field of study. But anyhow, they still possess more knowledge in the field than the student.

REMOTE LEARNING: HOW WOULD PARENTS FEEL ABOUT THEIR CHILDREN LEARNING FROM HOME

“Far too impersonal.”


at home

Parents in the past who home-schooled their children were seen as revolutionaries. But in today’s society, especially with the school shooting across the country, maybe more parents may want to consider home-schooling. But the traditional home-schooling is different than what I am thinking about. I am referring to a more remote classroom where the teacher is not physically at the school. More so, the teacher is at home, and the kid is in front of their computer at home. They communicate via web cam, and it would create a more digital means of learning. With no books and a paperless form of learning.

access to technology

When trying to create something this remote, you will need to make sure students are able to bring themselves near a computer. And not everyone has a computer, and those that do, don’t have reliable methods of learning in this new capacity. So what would happen is that those kids could see themselves, at no fault of their own, lag behind even worse than in the classroom. Because now you’re talking reliable internet access. Where even some of your best students could be negatively effected by such a move in education. Which leads into the next paragraph.

communication breakdown

As for the communication, there are a few issues that occur from the remote learning. When inside of a classroom, you are able to look into the students eyes and connect to them whereas you cant’s through a computer. But the main reason kids come to school, is where they start to develop means conflict resolution and dealing with others different themselves. You also have communication issues via the technology that will make it impossible for the teacher to do their jobs. So as for now, we will stick to the more traditional method. And that is sending your children off to school each and everyday.

OVERCROWDING: WAYS TO KEEP SCHOOLS FROM GOING OVER THE RECOMMENDED POPULATION

Image result for crowding SCHOOLS

“Navigating these halls can be impossible.”


school population

Walking the halls of certain high schools, you can’t help but to notice there is a major population issue with some of them. And the issue has been a problem for some time now. But how do schools districts deal with the overcrowding issues at area schools? Should they build another school? Should they go down a list of students who are tardy and start eliminating them that way? Should schools be encouraged to push students into earlier graduations?

cost

The cost associated with overcrowding are not just monetary for a school. The other non-monetary cost are the inability to focus in a classroom. And the other cost is the lack of connection made between student and their educator. These are more long-term effects of a school that follow a student even after they graduate from high school. But the biggest has to be the problem with trying to teach in a class where there are just too many in the classroom. And with disruptions that generally occur, the student would be better off teaching themselves. Because the students that want to learn are not getting anything from the lessons anyways.

alternatives

I gave a few options in how to deal with the issues surrounding overcrowding in schools. But one option that may be overlooked is trying to get students to graduate early. Find the students who are higher performing, and give them incentives into leaving high school early. Aid them in scholarship money for early graduation and that could decrease numbers in schools. You could also observe who is the most disruptive, and remove those students as well that negatively effect a learning environment.

ACADEMIC EXPECTATIONS: WHY DO WE EXPECT SO MUCH FROM OUR EDUCATORS

Man in Black and White Polo Shirt Beside Writing Board

“Cut them some slack.”


doing their job

Teachers are expected by the masses to be superheroes. We send our kids to school and think that the teacher should give them all the tools they need to be great. But the teacher is just a small part of your child’s success. The parents play a role in the child doing well in life as well. Yet the teachers take a punishment when the students aren’t performing.

work with them not against them

Playing a role in your child’s success and having good teaching is what creates the successful kid. But that depends in the relationship the parent has with the school and teacher. As a child, my mother played a vital role in us performing because she would call the schools for anything. Didn’t matter what it was, just to keep up with what we were doing. This way the teacher didn’t feel everything was on them.

give them the tools

We want them to educate our children, but we don’t give them the tools to do so. We have schools with old books and outdated equipment. Then the performance is low and we say we need better teachers. Well, how do you make due when you’re at an insane disadvantage. So the grades are a reflection of the lack of backing from not only the parents, but our government. So if you’re not going to be part of the solution, then you’re contributing to the problem.
