    Hey everyone, I just wondered what your thoughts were on the way teachers treat students, whether good or bad.

    I once had a english teacher that told me I would never pass my english gcse as i have the handwriting of a child, i felt that was awfully inappropriate but otherwise my teachers weren't horrendous.

    — Tried to help a teacher that was struggling to make a PowerPoint presentation fullscreen, they retorted with: "Would you like to teach me to suck eggs too?" I said nothing and watched her struggle for 4 minutes. When she asked for help afterwards, I had suddenly forgotten how to do it.
    — Old Maths teacher was incredibly racist and a bully towards many students. Can't repeat what he said.
    — Witnessed one teacher get corrected by a student (student was right, they were wrong). The initial reaction of the teacher was to tell them to: "Get ****ed".


    Oh boy I wish I were lying.

    Yup! You should hear what the racist teacher said. Trust me, I don't usually snitch on teachers — but I reported them and the school didn't do a thing.

    Gosh, your school was worse than mine. At least my school fired the teacher that liked to throw chairs at pupils.

    A lot of teachers are bad these days as they go into to teaching as a last resort and imo they do not really want to teach

    My tutor told me on more than one occasion that I wouldn't really get far in life, because my attendance was bad (I was incredibly sick. Even hospitalised at one point for a while) and because I never fulfilled my form rep duties correctly (I wasn't the only form rep, was never told what to do, nobody cared/listened to form reps so I didn't see the point)

    I had a teacher in high school who I'm pretty sure was actually the devil. Everybody was frightened of her, she was constantly shouting and in a bad mood. I remember one time we were making apple pies (she taught food technology), and after she looked at mine, she yelled "You're all useless!", which I'm fairly certain was directed at me.

    Everybody cheered when she announced she was retiring :lol:

    That sounds like a music teacher we had, even some of the staff clearly wanted her gone.

    There's good, there's bad. Generally, I'd say good.

    I won't ever forget the way my senior tutor told me that I will fail every A Level Maths exam I sit.

    Working so hard rn to prove that b*tch wrong.

    It's a 'converted academy diocesan school', so the LEA don't really get involved and Ofsted are presented with a sugarcoated version of events :rolleyes: I hated PE too
