Top Ten Things Schools Say They Do, But Actually Don't


The Top Ten

1 Stop bullying

I don’t think any teacher could care less when you or another person is being bullied. All they do is put up a bunch of stupid posters that no one is gonna notice, but when you actually go to them for help, they either don’t believe you or just don’t care. - 3DG20

2 Care about students

That is an obvious lie. Teachers don’t care if students are being bullied or suffering from anxiety/depression. They care about being paid. - 3DG20

3 Don't discriminate
4 Give students healthy lunches

And breakfasts, too.

Yeah, because pizza, chips, cookies and pop is totally healthy. - 3DG20

5 Actually teach

Some just stick a booklet in your face, then proceed to text on their phones while the whole class has no idea what to do. - 3DG20

Depends on the teacher. My physics teachers over the years were brilliant, and we did a lot to impress each other. My gym and religious studies teachers, on the other hand... - PositronWildhawk

6 Give a fair amount of homework

If we’re sitting at our tables for 9 hours struggling on 20 booklets that are all due the next day, that’s not a “fair” amount. - 3DG20

7 Discipline students

Oh, so that’s why students constantly get away with bullying, right? - 3DG20

8 Clean the bathrooms
9 Prepare students to deal with life's issues

No, all they are doing is giving students issues. - 3DG20

10 Guidance counseling

They don’t help, they just ask a million questions. - 3DG20

The Contenders

11 Respect each other

Because they think that yelling at kids is considered as "respectful"

I guess if you consider begging students for their respect even though you never respect them back “respecting each other”, then sure, otherwise no... - 3DG20

12 Don't mock kids

I don’t have any experiences with a teacher mocking me, but we had a supply teacher one day and he asked for song requests even though he not only turned down someone else’s request, but when I gave mine, he started mocking the singer. The students do the exact same thing! - 3DG20
