Many of the teachers we have now are less than interested in their job, and it shines through. It is exceptional noticeable that they would rather be anywhere other than that classroom, and be around these students. When teachers have this attitude, and take it to the classroom everyday, it takes a toll on the students academically. It harms them because they are not getting the best education provided. Teachers have little to no motivation to help their students excel academically. They go into their classroom, ramble off their lecture, and then leave. When teachers are not active in a students life, it harms the students. Schools try multiple different ways to get teachers involved, and nothing changes in the classroom.

If their paychecks were based off of their students success in their classes, their entire attitudes would change. They would take their job more seriously, and have some motivation to do their job the thorough way students need. “Many performance based pay systems include components which allow principals to terminate teachers who continuously fail to meet goals and objectives. Most teacher unions adamantly opposed performance based pay because of this element. Standard teacher contracts make it difficult to terminate employment, but a performance based pay contract makes it easier to remove a bad teacher. Teachers who are unable to get the job done are replaced by another teacher who may be able to get things on track” (Thought Co.) Others agree that if teachers were held to a higher standard, and had something held against them, they would want to be more involved. Having proof that a teacher is incapable of teaching students everything they need too, they will be able to weed out the bad teachers. Giving teachers an incentive to get it together, and start teaching their students to the fullest extent should be implemented in more schools. Students will be more successful in their studies, and overall become more successful in school. A big chunk of teachers need some sort of incentive so they can teach their students better. On the other hand, some teachers love what they do, and they should get more recognition for
“It’s Time To Get Paid College Style” On December 30, 2016 the University of Michigan played Florida State University in the Capital One Orange Bowl. All-American tight-end Jake Butt tore his right ACL in the first quarter of the game. Jake Butt said, "I should be the example of why college athletes should be getting paid in college or why I can 't use my name to benefit off my likeness in college," Butt said after Michigan 's Pro Day on Friday (Rothstein). Jake believes that players should be compensated for what they do on the field. Jake has declared for the NFL Draft in April, but he knows that with his injury instead of being a first round pick he will now most likely be a third or fourth round pick.
Erin Cummings once said that “At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren't where you want to be, you will always be a failure.” Today kids are blinded by the idea that the reason why their performance on a subject is not where they want it to be is not their fault but the teachers fault. Students decide to take the easiest way out of their problems by blaming someone else.
Teachers unions refuse to reward good teachers who actually aid our nation 's students so they are able to succeed. The tenure system legislated by the American Association of University Professors in 1900, keeps teachers who hinder the education and performance of students from being fired. Which leaves students to fail and these teachers with no repercussions. Such as in New York, between 2006 and 2011 only 32 out of 132,000 teachers were fired for any reason.
In addition, a teacher with a classroom full of students willing to learn, they are more motivated to teach. If it is the opposite, the teacher is less
Bob says that teacher certification is not enough to show that that certain teacher is good enough to be effective to all students. Bob states that schools in the past didn’t research the teachers so they could make the students score high on end of course exams. He states that schools have to change the way they higher teachers so they can tell the difference between good and bad teachers. Bob states that doing this would help our students to be more successful.
Now days with classrooms so large and with the growing amount of required curriculum for teachers to teach, it is understandable for teachers to lose that connection with their students. For me, I have been lucky enough to have had two of the most influential and amazing teachers.
First of all, students should not be paid for good grades due to not needed pressure. The NEA claims : many teachers say, “Paying students for good grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” This means students are more likely to be in bad moods and have bad relationships with parents and classmates. If some kids get money and the rest don’t, arguments will break out. In a classroom, students are supposed to be respectful to each other in order to have and efficient working environment.
Schools are just like jobs. The boss expects the workers to stay on task and do their work well. Teachers want students to work hard and also do their work with effort. If schools really want students to succeed, shouldn’t they be paid? Paying students motivate them to work hard to learn the criteria.
For decades, educational institutions have debated whether after school athletics should stay, or be stopped. Multiple studies have shown that cancelling school sports has had many benefits. Therefore, school athletics should be suspended to cut costs, get schools better graduation rates, and allow students to spend more time to focus on academics. Obviously sports are expensive, shutting them down would save a tremendous amount of money for schools.
Not all kids come to school ready and prepared, some get into arguments with parent while others do not get enough sleep, others have too much stress to be able to focus. Teachers do not teach the class because they love it, they teach because they are being pushed to teach generalized material which is
It’s there job. I could never be a teacher. I couldn’t handle the annoying kids to shut their mouths up. It’s not my thing to become a teacher.
