Revenge?

In colleges, I've experienced and heard about teachers revenging students for some silly reasons. Like reducing internal marks, threating to fail them and other things that they can do. Actually, by reducing a few marks, the teacher loses nothing. it's the student who suffers. I know people who can't get a job or apply for a test 'coz they are a bit short of the percent needed like .1% or .2%. Teachers can punish students, but most of the teachers won't let go a simple thing and as long as the student is in the college he/she has to endure it. Once a punishment is given, the whole issue should end with that, right? but that normally won't happen and because of some thing that's done in the first semester the student should hear and endure even in the 6th semester. Is it right? Actually, how many teachers, now a days, want to see their students doing well?

  1. i think wat u r saying is absolutely true...this is happening a lot these days....impression specifically first impression on teachers matters a lot....n if u have messed up with some faculty in clg...god help u.....this is wrong...by no way a teacher should do this like takin revenge.......but there is lot more to it...if we come to think of ot honestly...at the students part its just not messing up but a rigidity....a consant attitude of disrespect....not just expressing your views but sheer badatamizi....think about the poor chap who is suppose to handle so many youngsters...n a lot of tehm who aint tht gud....

  2. hello..
    so very true,there are teachers with big egos who would do every bit they can to make life tough for the student.
    Luckily, I have a few professors in my college who genuinely want us to do well and they are very very fair in their assessment..

  4. nikita,

    Thanks.
    Yah, I agree, but once a student is punished, shouldn't they leave it there? In most cases the teachers continues to punish directly or indirectly as long as the student is there.

  8. joiedevivre,

    yah, of course. Students also misbehave. But I am not saying they shouldn't be punished. What I meant is even after punishing the student, they'll keep the incident in their mind and behave accordingly. After all, its college students and they are certainly gonna do something, but keeping such things in mind till the student leaves the college is not what a teacher should do, right?

  10. Got to tell u this not only happens in college but in schools also. I have experienced.U cant complain about their teaching or otherwise u will lose ur marks so could not complain at all.
    About concern the teachers are not at all bothered about kids they r just bothered abt their money no dedication towards duty.
