The Problem Of A Teacher

Teachers are humans like the rest of us, and can be lazy. They can’t always be blamed for having an “off day” as we all have them, but sometimes teachers take advantage of the fact that it’s tougher to get fired as a teacher than a lot of other jobs. When a teacher has been there for a long time, it can be a very difficult task to get them fired if they’re taking advantage of their tenure. A new teacher almost always starts out great, happy, and very excited to teach their class. An issue is, over time teachers can become lazy, as can people with other jobs. The issue with a lazy teacher, though, is that the student’s future is in the hands of the teacher. When teachers are lazy, sometimes they’ll give out what is called “busy work,” used to waste time, and give them something to do while the teacher sits and does what they want. There are two ways this is a huge issue: first, this doesn’t help students at all, meaning that the time they spent doing it helps get them nowhere, and is completely pointless. Second, students can carelessly complete the work, and take advantage of the teacher not caring. After time, a teacher not caring isn’t a reason for them being fired, due to the fact that they’re a union, and unless they commit a serious crime as shown on plenty of news stations, then they’re free to do as they please as long as they aren’t necessarily breaking the law. Teaching can be one of the toughest jobs out there, and many people take it as a job anyone can do.
