    Would you go out with another teacher from the same school?
    No. I doubt any would go out with me anyway.

    What uni did you go to? And what degree?

    Not saying as I wish to remain absolutely anonymous for obvious reasons.

    (Original post by Nedum Onuoha)
    I find that quite hard to believe. How big is your school?

    edit:

    :confused:
    It has about 1500 students.

    So do you would suggest to limit the limitation of the curriculum, so teacher and students are able to have more liberties which can be used to create realistic lessons? Is it that what should be changed in the UK education system?
    Yes that is a change that needs to be made, absolutely.

    Why did you answer the same question differently? Were you worried in the first instance that people would think it was bad that you found students attractive?

    They learn for exams only, yes. It's all about grades and qualifications. (...)
    So would you say in a cynical way that school is intending to make students to gears in a clockwork?

    How much teachers are able to influence the education system anyway?

    Yes.

    Teachers just do what they are told by the government via the curriculum.

    There is no change. Quite frankly, you seem obsessed with this topic. I would be seriously worried if you ever do become a teacher.

    There was a change. First you said you had never found a student attractive, then you said you had.

    Huh? I'm not planning to become a teacher.

    These are very interesting answers! you answered that teachers do what is given by the curriculum of the government. How much the government is controlled by the economy in this regard?

    Have you any countries as paragons in terms of that change? are there countries which allow many liberties in terms of curriculum anyway?

    I think you mean 'purposely', Crunchie. I thought you were good with grammar?
    I am but I didn't know that.

    You're a dupe aren't you? You wouldn't be calling me Crunchie if you weren't one. One of my nit-pickers... Who are you? :rolleyes:

    1. Year 7 definitely - they can be squashed and they are very obedient on the whole.
    2. Stats 2
    3. They are torture. Some parents really are defensive as hell.
    4. Yes

    1. Complete control I guess.

    2. I imagine that Singapore and Finland allow plenty of liberties. I would love to visit a school in those countries.

    Ah weird, I thought you would prefer teaching a-level as it is a bit more interesting

    Also weird, you're the first teacher I've spoken to who enjoys teaching stats :eek: I'm looking forward to starting S2 then

    Yeah I always feel bad for teachers when it comes to these meetings, they seem pretty pointless to me.
