That's what youth clubs would offer if they weren't all shut down. Teachers won't work an extra 2 hours a day baby sittingThis also. Schools have to do more, and more social clubs for kids to participate in. After school reading, football, video games whatever.
Teachers are not responsible for what happens at home of course.This is all good, but what it essentially does is make teachers responsible for shit parenting and transfer the parental workload of half-arsed parents onto teachers. Teachers already provide educational childcare for 7-8 hrs a day. The little darlings should be asleep for another 8 of the 24, so it's not really much to ask for some parental input into the remaining 8 hrs.
I’m assuming you’re talking from a period of time ago.Teachers are not responsible for what happens at home of course.
But surely we all know that some teachers are lazy and just don't care.
A lot of teachers are great but tend to be in better schools, away from the low socio economic areas.
Once good teachers start to leave a school it can soon lose the plot. And then it's a vicious circle of failure.
I agree that parents have more influence on a child growing group but teachers play their part.
I went to a pretty crappy school in Manchester that had two or three very good teachers who engaged us in the subjects they taught, you kind of look forward to those classes.
We had some lousy ones though I remember the science teacher used to just throw out some textbooks and then bugger off for 40 minutes for a smoke or two. Only to reappear 10 minutes before the end of the lesson.
I am now not a scientist :)
Our English teacher inspired me to read books, he had an effect on my life I have to say.
