Top 10 Reasons Why Kids Hate Their Teachers


The Top Ten

1 They punish the whole class when one kid does something bad

I KNOW RIGHT! In high school, my special ed teacher yelled at the entire class over a harmless joke.

That's so unfair! Some people are talking behind the class and the whole class has to write an essay saying things like "why I wasn't respecting the rules in class" sort of thing. So frustrating! - MaxPap

That feeling when Ms. Brown doesn't let you go to recess cause you ate in class and now you're sad. - ProPanda

2 They humiliate you
3 They don't let you go to the bathroom

I wish diapers could be worn to school because of this

I’m gonna say that when my maths teacher says no.

My math teacher used to let us go to bathroom in the middle of class the whole year but now since it’s the last quarter of school he doesn’t let us because of the state tests which are “important”. I hate every class now... - Lolbs

Me - Can I go to the bathroom?
Teacher - To do what?
Me - TO OPEN THE PORTAL TO NARNIA...what do you think I'm gonna do?

Me - Can I go to the bathroom?
Teacher - You should have gone before class.
Me - I'm sorry I haven't organized my pee schedule.

4 They tell students not to drink soda when they do all the time

Same here my science teacher doesn’t like it when we bring pop in but the 8th grade gets to drink it but the other grades don’t its like privilege or something. She also talks crap about the 8th grade all the time. Teachers these days... - Lolbs

5 They punish you for no reason

The main reason why I hate my high school special ed teacher

Yeah, I can agree. I'm a "good kid" in school and usually, when I get in trouble it's my doing (i don't get in trouble a lot though) but this time I got yelled at for the most ridiculous reason EVER. So it was 4th grade and I'm in art class and we were making paper apple people and as a joke, I decide to punch mine "I didn't even punch hard, so I couldn't cause rips or anything" and the TEACHER decides to come up and yell "Mark! (not my real name) Do you need to go to ISS? (ISS stands for in-school suspension and my school uses it frequently) He threatened me to go to ISS, for punching a flipping PAPER APPLE! Even if he did, the security guards would probably be laughing their ass off at the teacher. My god, I swear that the teacher was like five or something. - TheMinecraftGamer

Today, I know this has nothing to do with a teacher but it was the janitor. So anyways after I get up and throw away my lunch the janitor comes yells at me to clean up a mess that wasn’t mine. I thought of telling him to clean up the mess since he’s the janitor but I’m the type of student who doesn’t rebel so I didn’t argue because I knew I would get in trouble by the school’s disciplinary teachers who were right by me. So I clean it up the mess and he says to me that I need to be more respectful. And the last time I checked students make messes all the time and the janitors clean it up because that’s what they’re there for. I was thinking of having my parents write a complaint to the principal for the janitor treating me like crap since he made me clean up a mess that wasn’t mine but I didn’t want to stir drama so I let it go. It is also very embarrassing cleaning up a mess in front of everybody, and I was in a really bad mood all day because of what the janitor ...more - Lolbs

6 They ignore you
7 They're mean
8 They stereotype

I had teachers who assumed that I am Buddhist just because I am Asian. I am atheist! Not all Asians are Buddhists, OK?

So true though, this year my language arts teacher started saying that every student who says the word “ain’t” they are automatically a failer to language arts. Lol Language Arts teachers get salty when you don’t use a real word. - Lolbs

9 They tell you to ignore it when you're getting bullied
10 They're hypocrites

A teacher banned us form using phones but half the time she's using it. - AlphaQ

I get a hard time for dropping the F bomb when teachers at my school say "Damn" and "Hell" whenever they're angry. If they can swear what's the deal if I do?

My high school special ed teacher says “no swearing” but says “bs” is OK to say.

The Contenders

11 They're nosy

Agreed. I get in trouble for whispering in my boyfriend's ear yet a kid who bullied me got rewarded for good behavior instead of punished for bad behavior. It took 2 years to expel him - Ihateschool

They're always on your ass about something minor, that they shouldn't care about.

All special ed teachers are nosy. They constantly want to know where you are and what you're doing at all times. STALKERS! >:(

This school year the teachers started using a site called second site which allows teachers to see what students are doing and it’s very rude and annoying because even on free time when I have no work to be done and I’m on YouTube they tell me to get off it and I get mad. But the principal told the teachers it was invasion of privacy and they needed to stop. - Lolbs

12 They don't care what's going on
13 They take away your toys

In first grade, I bought my Storm Pegasus Beyblade to school and played with it at recess. And then, a teacher came up to me and confiscated my toy until the end of the day!

And electronics, too

14 They go too fast when they're "teaching"

They also erase the board before everyone is done copying the notes down

15 They mess up your grades

For example how a 5 point assignment brings an 85% grade to a 54% grade. - Stalin

One of my teachers said that an assignment is optional, and the system said that it was required, and it dropped my grade to a 40! I thought I legit failed the class!

16 They call your parents for every minor thing you did wrong
17 They don’t allow students bringing Halloween costumes to school

Elementary schools do. They just ban scary costumes, masks, and props.

18 They're rude
19 They're megalomaniacs
20 They give you a lot of guff
21 They only care about school work
22 They don't explain anything.

It's like they don't care about teaching. Ironically they are teachers - Randomator

23 They always get candy and snacks
24 They are strict
25 They are unforgiving
26 They never understand
27 They can be racist
28 They yell and scream
29 They don’t respond to student emails fast enough

To be fair they are busy. - Ihateschool

It’s really annoying when I ask for help via email and I have to wait SEVERAL HOURS for them though response. Teachers usually check and respond to emails in class while the students are working.

30 They can be cruel and abusive

Special ed teachers

31 They think they’re your parents
32 Their discipline methods

In 1st grade the teacher sent kids to the back of a room to stand on a rug with an X duct taped on it.

In 6th or 7th grade the class had to write punishment sentences for homework PLUS do their regular math homework due to being disruptive.

In high school my teachers forced me to let them look into my backpack after some random kid put stuff in them when I wasn't looking.

33 They treat students like animals

They give students dog commands such as “Stay! ”, “Come here! ” and “Sit”!

34 They give out ridiculous amounts of homework

I had to type a 10 PAGE essay once and another time I had to read 7 chapters of a book over spring break! ’!

35 They may use physical force
36 They confiscate/steal your stuff
37 They treat you like an idiot

My high school special ed teacher forced me to learn kindergarten math.

38 They don't allow freedom of speech
39 They threaten
40 They get really mean for the stupidest reasons

My high school special ed teacher got me in trouble for stuff such as a messy classroom, saying the words 'horse" and "Disney", and even talking about junk food!

41 They just repeat the instructions every time you ask for help instead of explaining how to do it

Me: I don’t understand this
Teacher: it’s in the book
Me: I still don’t understand it after reading it
Teacher: it’s in the book

42 They make your life miserable
