Schools have a responsibility to educate your children and prepare them for the challenges of this world. Teachers are the gatekeepers that stand between your child and their future. The educational system is a very subjective environment that gives teachers the power to decide the success and failure of your child based on their opinion of your child’s performance. Many of us believe that teachers are incapable of corruption. Due to this belief, whenever a child is failing in school we automatically think the child is at fault. Teachers have bias, and that is a very dangerous reality to ignore. Some teachers also have poor communication skills; which is very dangerous because when a lesson is not communicated properly or a question is not asked correctly it restricts the possibility of a correct response. In school, sometimes the answer to certain questions is not based on logic but on the discretion of a teacher’s level of understanding which may be subjected to flaws. Therefore, it is possible to have a smart and logical child who still fails horribly in school. That is a major problem, yet a reality that has destroyed many children’s future.
Like anyone else, teachers are imperfect; they are capable of making mistakes. Some teachers just don’t care about the future of your child, while others display actions that are motivated by envy and jealousy, and they will act on these emotions to prevent your child from becoming successful.
What is it that makes parents believe that their job is completed once they have managed to afford an education (sending them to school) for their children? Such mentality must be restructured, and rethink carefully. A responsible parent is one who not only sends their children to school but one who also closely monitors that entire experience. Teachers need to be monitored by parents and even by students who are capable of doing this for themselves effectively.
Here are a few suggestions on how to monitor teachers and the progression of your child’s educational experience. At the beginning of each semester, ask the teacher for a detailed overview of their evaluation (grading) procedure. You want to know this so that you can have your child meet these expectations. Throughout the course of the school term, maybe every few weeks, ask the teacher to validate the current status of your child’s performance. Ask the teacher to highlight the areas that need improvement. Closely monitoring a teacher makes it very difficult for them to be neglectful in their effectiveness as an educator, and this will also significantly reduces the chances of prejudice and foul play.
Children are being discouraged in school and the parents are completely detached from this reality. You cannot place the future of your child in the hands of any teacher in the name of trust. Always try to familiarize yourself with the lessons that are being used to evaluate your children. Education is important because it allows us to compete at the pace of the modern world, and to occupy all the different positions of power that are necessary to create change and protect us from abuse.
This world may not be natural to us but before we can end it we have to first put ourselves in a position to control it. It is necessary for your children to succeed.
