Also, I think I'd 'strop' if I had to spend my days subjected to some elements of this list of 'triggers' - wouldn't you?:
- Arguing with them.
- Enforcing the rules.
- Reminding them of the rules.
- Asking them not to interrupt you when you are talking to another child.
- Setting work.
- Correcting their mistakes.
- Asking to see their work.
- Looking at their work.
- Talking to them.
My sympathies are with the students and the teachers. This is not education. This is a sick parody of education that bears no resemblance to the development of intellect as I understand it.
Looking at the comments, I liked this one though:
"Once I'd reminded them I got paid anyway and started to read my book they'd sometimes demand that I taught them just to annoy me.
It made me wonder if there is some hope, after all.
