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 Give students healthy lunches

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

3 Actually teach

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

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

4 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

5 Don't discriminate
6 Discipline students
7 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

8 Guidance counseling

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

9 Prepare students to deal with life's issues
10 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

The Contenders

11 Respect each other

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

12 Clean the bathrooms
