#210 school lessons boring

“How’s school?”

“It’s boring!” remarked a teenager from a good school.

Sadly students think that teachers can teach…but the truth is, many of us who had gone through the mill discovered the qualified teachers were average. They could hardly impart knowledge. Some teachers read through the text with us during lessons and they expect us to perform. We must be the intelligent to have gone through schooling with such teachers!

I recall in the past when teachers have time, they would gossip and naturally creating more and more discontents. Some teachers took their frustrations out on the students…I reckon that was abuse! This unhappy and cantankerous mood of teachers was resolved when the education ministry made teachers attend extracurricular courses and given opportunities for upgrading their skills.

However today, a new phenomenon has emerged. The young think they are smarter than the grown-ups…especially those in the primary schools!

There is seeming lack of humility and unwillingness to learn. If children resist learning in every situation or think they know more than adults, the society is heading for…I don’t know what! 

Is this the frog-in-the-well mentality…or, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
