    Sometimes teachers don't realise the effect their words have on students... It's really tough! I'm glad you showed her the error of her ways by getting that amazing grade though!!
    Luckily I'm the type of person who's motivated by that, in the 'I'll prove you wrong' sort of way. I was not discouraged, but rather inwardly seething, but I know people who would have given up. You do not tell somebody that directly to their faces.

    In year 10 we were told "your work experience week really, really matters - it is a huge deal"

    What rubbish that was. :rofl:

    It may not be for everyone. But it's true that algebra is important for many things that are taken for granted in daily life.

    I had a teacher at primary school who used to send random students to another classroom for a "long wait" and a "short wait". The other class' teacher must have been in on the joke because he duly kept them waiting before sending them back empty-handed. A good lesson in gullibility.

    its still work experience, and the reason why jobs don't go to students anymore " lack work experience " so what does government do? add work experience to your school work.

    "Your coursework is there for you to fall back on!"

    *teachers mark it wrong so we have to work to pull our coursework grade up with the exam as opposed to having the coursework grade to pull up our exam mark*

    In year 8 our teacher told us she had a friend that was in teacher training. She left the room to speak to someone. During this time her students threw rubbers across the room. She walked into the room, one of the rubbers went into her eye and made her permanently blind. She had to quit her training and became unemployed.

    I can guarantee this NEVER happened. And everyone continued to throw rubbers around the room.

    My teacher told me she was the best teacher in our school, but all she use to do was use other teachers powerpoints and read off of it🙄

    Our History teacher titled every email he sent to us with 'FREE PIZZA' or 'FREE CHOCOLATE' to make sure everyone read them.
    There would always be a clause at the end of the email explaining he lied about the free food :')

    Yup, one of my maths teachers said this a lot, especially when setting all 19 questions of an exercise when 3 would have sufficed to learn the subject matter. The difference between some questions was simply slotting different numbers into the same formula.
