have you ever had a teacher say something so off that you've lost just a bit of respect for anyone who teaches that subject? things that, due to their supposed knowledge of the subject they teach, they should have known better than to say? here's a couple of examples to let you know what i mean.

1. last semester in my Intro to Anthropology class we were discussing polygyny in Africa, and as luck would have it, we had a kid in that class from Ghana. he talked about how his father has several wives and all. the teacher as a couple of questions about the way they lived together, including how their huts were grouped. she was genuinely surprised to find that not only did his family not live in huts, but that he had never even seen a hut in his life and wasn't even entirely sure what they were.

2. i had been discussing the topic of my research paper with my Intro to Sociology teacher, and i said that i wanted to discuss non-Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Islam, and Judaism) in the United States. specifically, i wanted to discuss Hinduism, Buddhism, and Paganism and examine the sociological characteristics of Americans involved with these religions. he kept referring to them as "cults." so pretty much he's comparing two of the largest religions in the world today and essentially the oldest religion in the world (due to the inclusion of most pre-Abrahamic religions under the umbrella of paganism) to something like the Peoples Temple. i could understand labeling modern Neopaganism as being somewhat of a cult, but historical polytheistic or folk religions? no way, considering that since the dawn of religion to the beginning of Judaism pretty much the entire population of the world would fall under that category. and Hinduism and Buddhism? no way.

so Pit, any of you ever had any similar experiences?

Once my nutrition teacher (who primarily teaches junior high history and geography) began talking about all the unrest in Egypt back before Mubarak stepped down. I said something like "Yeah, just another reason not to go to Africa." She looked at me pretty funny, and said,

"But Egypt is in Europe."
"Erm, no it isn't."
"Yes it is, I'm sure of it."

So I walk to to the front of the class, pull down the map from the top of the whiteboard, and had to point out where Egypt was on a map. To a social studies teacher

Another time during Drivers Ed, we were talking about how it's actually odd for people to drive on the right side of the road vs. the left, because most countries apparently drive on the left. We had a guy in our class who's parents were from Kenya, but he had been born and raised here in Canada. So the teacher, thinking he'd get some class insight, decided to ask him,
"So what side of the road do they drive on where you're from?"
At first no one knew what he was talking about, until we realized he was talking to the only person in the class that wasn't white. Since he was born in Canada, he just said "The right?" looking kind of puzzled. Then it just went downhill from there.

"No I mean, in the country you come from, what side of the road do they drive on?"
"In Canada, we drive on the right side."
"No but, in the country you were born in, what side of the road do they drive on?"
"I've lived in Canada all my life. So, the right side."
"No, I don't think you understand. In the African country you came fro-"
"I'M NOT FROM ****ING AFRICA"

Then he stormed out of the room, and no one knew whether to laugh or gasp or what. He's usually pretty comfortable with his colour since he's one of like ten black people in my whole town (once he got kicked out of a library for having chocolate milk near the computers, and he asked "If it was white milk could it stay?" smiling the whole time), but I guess this guy just struck a nerve with his incredible thick-headedness and ignorance.

A teacher at my college, who I used to really like and enjoyed his classes, told me that I was lazy and am never going to achieve anything in my life. Doesn't seem like the kind of thing a teacher should say to any of their students. I always get consistently good grades too :/

Ah well the jokes on him, I just got accepted into Uni

My school used to have assemeblies (Don't know if thats how it's spelt) and it was a week before the OFSTED Inspection, which lasts for a week or so.

When we were in the assembly hall the head of year said something like "just calm down for this week only as we have OFSTED coming to evaluate the school, after their gone you can go back to normal"

May i add that "normal" was a ****in' catastrophe and the fact that the head of year knew that, was disgusting.
I lost mad respect for the School, all they cared about was their reputation and not the students.

Be fair, he has a point. Just so happens that half the class needs to pull their finger out and do some work. Or they're just thick.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

Music teacher at school started talking about the Eurovision, saying she was disappointing France didn't win because they were very professional musically or something like that. And one of my friends basically said "I thought they sucked".

And then she just lashed out.

"Who are you to judge them, do you have 40 years of musical education like I do??!?"
and similar stuff. After she finished her rant about how her opinion is better than everyone else's, she basically said "There won't be anymore lessons this year, bye bye".


Also the post above me reminded this bizarre thing. It's completely Off Topic, but I was walking down the street last Saturday, when two girls approached me and said "Your dick is like the Eiffel Tower". I stared awkwardly at them, and said "That's cool", to which they replied "Yep!".

no nuts are my favorite.

and yes, I've no respect for many of my teachers. few have shown any competence in their subjects, and those few I hold in the highest regard. the most stand out example of late is probably my Art History teacher. for one, he knew essentially nothing about history. a guy in our class kept correcting him on various mistakes. then he would say shit like centaurs were real and that the heart and brain were made of the same type of muscle... The "tests" he had were ridiculously abstract take home things. I stopped worrying about how much I would actually learn in that class and just crammed as much arbitrary crap into my papers as I could. I got an A for all three quarters.

My teacher was talking about famous ill people and claimed Stephen Hawking was an American Chemist who has Parkinson's.

Don't worry though, he's only a General Studies teacher, which is a compulsory subject at my college and means absolutely **** all.

that reminds me of this one dumb blonde from my high school in my senior year. my high school was almost entirely white, but there happened to be two black kids in the freshman class. now, these two kids looked nothing alike, but one day this blonde girl goes up to them and asks if they are related. just cause they were both black.

in my freshman year, there was something else i remember with the same girl. she was in my social studies class, and we were learning about Saudi Arabia. the teacher had served in the army, and he had been stationed near Riyadh. he told us about Deera Square, which is a place where public executions are performed. he told us that it is often referred to as "Chop Chop Square." the girl then said "wait a minute, why do they chop them into squares?" everyone of course laughed, and she had no idea why.

I failed my first semester in gym. Let me explain before you all start giggling until your asses fall off.

Basically, the course I had only allowed 6 hours worth of total absences throughout the semester. Every time a student was late or absent, it would be noted down.

Normally, we have an online service for different reasons (including checking our current grades), and one use of it was to check how many hours you lost per class.

As it turns out, the gym teacher didn't put his students' hours on it. This made it hard to keep count of how many hours you've lost in gym class, or in my case, know that there was a mistake in the counting (because I was always present).

One day, I arrive in front of his desk to give him my attendance, only for him to tell me that if I was late once more, I was no longer allowed to come to class, which is bullshit because I was always on time (we were allowed to be a little late as long as we were under 10 minutes late). Obviously I was shocked and confused and told him immediately that there was a mistake.

No dice.

I was terribly lucky to get caught in a blizzard the week after

I've never had a good chemistry with gym teachers

He's right though :/ Although he should have said "A* - C", as C is generally the cut off for most further education. Maybe he was being a bit of a dick about it, but he is right.

I was in Politics before the AV Referendum and, because it's an AS class, I was the only person old enough to vote. My teacher asked me which way I'd vote and I said I wasn't sure yet. She said told me I'd be a moron if I didn't vote no. I ended up voting no, but it properly pissed me off.

My history teacher in 10th grade told me :

"Humans are the only species that wage wars between themselves."

Not only is this completely untrue (just look at ants, for chrissakes!), but the tone he used to say this, it was like he thought he was revealing a philosophical truth.

I told him that in fact, dolphins kill one another for fun, so his statement was invalid. He leered at me, and resumed the class. I didnt really have any respect for him in the first place, all he did was read out of the class book, but this event assured me of his stupidity.
