    Yeah I always feel bad for teachers when it comes to these meetings, they seem pretty pointless to me.
    You can never say anything of value anyway as you have about 2-3 minutes per appointment.

      No. Very few go to Oxbridge from my school anyway. You could probably count all the Oxbridge kids in the last 20 years on one hand.

        Oh wow that's not a great record :eek:, maybe you could change that? If someone in your class was aspiring to study maths at Cambridge would you help them prepare for STEP or would they be expected to self teach it?

        Since I'm not involved at all with Year 12 or 13 this year, I don't think I could be of much influence.

        We get stressed. We love our students really but sometimes it gets to be a bit too much for us.

        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.(...)
        If that is the case, so the economy is responsible for a frame condition at a school which is similar to an dictatorship. Would you say that schools and universities have legitimate dictatorships which are injustice to everyone?

        How far teachers and students have the chance to change the education system for the better, if they are wokring together?

        This might me very obvious answer yet I want to be known about it: do teachers like to be gossipmongers just like the students are? Do they compare good achievers the lesser ones the ones that get dumped down?

        Why would teachers do that? They should be match makers and not teachers then 🙏

        My maths teacher always tells me and the class that "mathematics was made for lazy people and mathematics is all about laziness [doing things in an easy way, being straightforward]

        What is your input on this?

        I don't get what you're saying.

        Obviously I always seat boy-girl boy-girl whenever possible but there are no romantic intentions behind this.

        I've had this question a few times in here.

        Teachers are much more likely to gossip about other teachers than students. We generally couldn't care less which student is going out with which but when a teacher is absent for a long time or are seen flirting with another teacher then rumours can spread like wildfire.

        In answer to your 2nd question, no we don't. We spend 5 hours a day with students we would rather talk about other things in the staff room. Honestly, the most popular conversations in the staff room are just normal things like X Factor, Big Brother, celeb gossip, the female staff talk about which men they find hot etc.
