With the semester well under way, I've begun to regain my scholastic cynicism. Especially when it comes to professors.
Is it just me or do professors just plain suck at teaching?
I mean, it's like they purposefully make themselves unhelpful. They are frustrating, unapologetically frustrating, and extremely arrogant. But not in a cool, funny way -- it's more of a lame, self-serving, condescending kind of way.
All of the burden is on the student, yet the student is the one paying to be taught. All of the work is put upon the student, yet the student is the one that needs the most help. All of the blame is put upon the student, yet the student is not the one doing the teaching. All of the responsibilities are put upon the student, and the professor retains all of the privileges.
Unequal situation, much?
This is just a quick note to say: professors need to remember who pays their salary.
Oh yeah, that's right!
