I believe that teachers are getting high on their authorityfor many years but the icing got put on the cak on Friday!

Some teacher came up to me and my friends and started to shout at us for no reason! And when I asked him what we done wrong, his reply was "I don't have to explain to you"

He then went face to face with me and shouted "Do you want suspended, I will kick you out, I will get your parents up"

Every time I went to defend myself he just shouted me down. Since when do teachers have the right to punish pupils who they simply do not like the look of?

Has anyone else have any experiences like this?

I hear you man! I was sitting with some friends and we were talking about religion. I said that I thought religion was a load of bullcrap and that I was an atheist. Next minute, I have this fat teacher literally spitting in my face saying that I should respect Christ or get out! I hadn't even mentioned christinaity!

Teachers do get a bit of a power trip!

Yes, I know know what you mean. I got badly discriminated against while I was in sixth form (basically a college) because of the way I dress. After months of being discriminated, I lost it and told the head of sixth form, and I quote, "Go and **** yourself. You can shove this sixth form up your ignorant arse!".

Before that though, he suspended me for about 3 weeks because I missed about five lessons out of thirty. I knew of people who had missed a hell of a lot more than I did and they didn't get one word said to them.

I don't regret what I said and quite frankly, if he was being that harsh to me outside of sixth form, I would have knocked him straight onto his backside.

Please note: I don't recommend telling your teachers to have sexual intercourse with their anus.

We didn't have problems like this when I was in school (graduated in 81).
I have noticed especially within the last few years that a lot of teachers are trying to act like police.
I think it might come from the fact that a lot of "problems" have happened in schools recently. Still it doesn't give them the right or reason to act that way.

We used to invite certain teachers to our parties, some of them actually showed up!


Most of the teachers were friendly, some of them were actually our friends. Then there were always the teachers that were complete a__holes, they usually ended up getting fired eventually.

The good old days......

The teacher that had a go at me is like sumo plus fat. She is so large it's almost unbelievable! She also lives about 200yds from the school and she still drives!

I wish she would actually ingest herself. That would make my day.

OH! And another thing, in my school, short sleeved white shirts are the uniform. We can also wear jumpers but no-on does because there so itchy. Soooooooooo, almost everyone wears a long sleeved shirt under the shirt to stay warm. Now my maths teacher is normally alright with this. But for some reason he hates me and always has a go at me about it, even though everyone in the class has the same thing.

Bloody teachers :down:

Beer Guy, I agree, some (most, not all) teachers are really cool people. I think once you "mature" into a sixteen year old or above, they treat you with more respect. Well, that's what happened to me anyway.

My mum's a teacher and I know for a fact she gets along very well with her students. I've started hanging out with her colleagues now at the pub.
I'm staying over at one of their houses in a few weeks... his house is HUUUGE. It has a sauna and a gym... hence why I'm actually going to stay there for a while. lol. Probably end up getting rat-arsed though.


Also, I'd just like to add, I love seeing students moan about their teachers, because I know for certain that teachers always moan about the students... and they're better at it, too.

Pfft. Or not. Im in the last year of school and they still treat us like crap. I hope it's better at college.

Though, I think they treat most of us like crap because alot of peeps in my year are so bloody immature, most of them are 16! I consider myself pretty mature, and try to get involved in class discussions about world events but always get gob from the 'thickies' calling me 'geek' and 'boff' I don't care though, they're the ones with no future. :shk:

I have had alot of teachers that were great... very open-minded and ready to discuss any possibility of a theory they may not have agreed with. This makes for a great experience in your educational experience. However not all were this great. I had some teachers that were very narrow-minded and ignorant.

One time in my sophomore year of high school, I had a major paper due the next week, tragically my grand-father passed away just before it was due and I did not finish it. The day it was due was my first day back to school, and I met up with him before the class and explained the situation and said I would have it by Friday.

His response was, word for word... I Don't give a damn about your BS excuses, You knew when it was due, so thats your problem. I responded with the death of my grandfather and how serious this was to me. He did not blink an eye, and I realized this tragic incident was nothing to him and I would be penalized for it.

10 minutes later I was out the door of the school short my book for the class that was in a few separate peices, laying just behind where he was standing. My mark in the class dropped from a mid 90 to a low 60 in the span of 2 weeks, this with me passing the completed project in the following day. As this incident was at the end of the cemester. Some guys get into the profession for the wrong reasons and the children suffer.

to those teachers you have that are a pleasure

to the rest.

Damn chissler, I would have probably hit him. He was extremely disrespectful and you should have reported him.

Indeed to the good teachers.

to the bad ones.

Don't worry about those immature idiots. Like you said, they're the ones with no future, they'll remain naive for eternity. You'll definately get treated better at college. I think it's first-name basis, too. No more, "Sir" or "Miss".
Just, "Bob" or "Big Dave" or something...

Cool. I kind of experence college at the moment.

I'm on a government pilot scheme to train new engineering apprentices, I go on day release to a 'training provider' and will have an NVQ lvl 2 in General Engineering by the time I leave school (about 3/4 months)

The qualification is primarily for 16+, but the government seems to want apprentices! Shame I'm going to study film!

Can't wait for college!

I have had exactly 3 bad teachers. The First one Ms Macdonnald who was fatter then most of the tubbos that eat at the restaurant she named herself after, was a sexist biiatch, Ms. Dennis who thought I was a genius and pretty much held my work to a MUCH higher standard then the rest of the class and Ms. whateverhername was who was pretty much a clone of the First "lady"

Cool teachers I've had were Ms Hawk, this Bull Dyke who was just the coolest, had her in grade 4 and she would get us free front row tickets to Hockey and Baseball games(she was also a Realestate agent for the various sports stars in the city so got lots of free tickets) Mr. Chung who may have been a perv but he really used to make those Alpha male types look like jackasses when they actually tried to stand up to him when he was telling someone off(they were the funniest and would and should I repeat them on this board I would get a warn) and.. well there was this one other teacher who was the nicest lady ever who just could not control her classroom so we could pretty much do whatever we pleased.

I am 16 and in the last year of school (unless I want to stay on for 6th year and try to get a place in a university) and he still treates everyone no-matter what age they are, as if they have no human rights!

The rest in my school are dead on, execpt for a few, but this guy just tries to show that he is a big man.

I swear if he has a go at me or my friends tomorrow I will litterally attack him, pupils do not have the power to stand up for ourselves, and I'm getting fed up with it!

I'm gonna put myself out their and say 'NO'!

Yes. I think the students of today feel their rights are being taken away.

But do they deserve some of those rights in the first place.

'Respect for your elders' is going out the window and students attempt to take matters into their own hands.

Like gang bashing a person because he's a 'racist'.
Or cutting someones school bag up 'because he stole my pacer' sort of thing.

Teachers are there to teach and advise students on the situations of adult life.
If students a gonna misbehave and treat teachers the way they do today, then they shouldn't even be allowed at school because they disrupt everyone else who is there to learn.

I agree with this. There is a new rule at my school were if you hug a friend to say hello (like many of us girls do) you can get either a lunch or office detention. I find this highly stupid, it wasn't getting out of hand or anything, we would just hug eachother to say hi. Oh and last year I got a phone call from one of my friends durring a school dance to tell me that her cousin or something was having her baby. It was like a 15 second phone call and right when I hung up a teacher took my phone away from me. Its not durring school hours so we are allowed to have our cellphone on us. Especially if its a big thing like that we should be allowed to have our cells. I can understand not getting calls durring a class so it wont disrupt any students, but at a stupid dance?

Teachers need to seriously chill, she only took away my cell cause she doesnt like me. She told my friend who was on her cell to put it away, but took mine and hide it in the office. I allmost didn't get it back, I had to look EVERYWHERE for the principal so I could get it back which took about 10 minutes. I then had to wait 10 minutes or so for my parents to pick me up and then I got yelled at by the same teacher for being on school grounds so late (your supposed to be gone 15 min after the dance)

RAWR >.< :bash:

Alright, now the teacher was threatening me and everything that he accused me of, he was the one doing it.

So what about self defense then, should I have my basic human rights trampled on or should I fight to keep them? Anyone would fight to keep them!

O, and by the way, this is the first time that an incident has ever happened to me in school and I am in my last year of compulsary education.

News just in:

My mum just said "teachers need to be high on authority. ANOTHER teacher was assaulted at school today."

I can understand that they need to be careful in school as they may get assaulted, but this does not enable them to pick fights with students and tell lies to get the student in more trouble and keep the teacher out.

I have many teachers on my side on this issue and they are talking to the teacher who got me into this.

If they can't sort it out, I will. I will become just as bad as he was. Lets see if he would like that!
