RE: Giving Thanks To Teachers, Tutors, Educators

hi dear @dkmathstats, what you write is very beautiful. I think teaching is the best and most difficult job in the world, of course you need to have a lot of patience and passion. in addition to the certain family (and it depends on the family) the school should teach the kids the critical thinking and the method to learn with which they will then go on for a lifetime, regardless of the specific subjects. it must also be said that many teachers have remained out of date and very often they are of no support to children, so governments should understand how important it would be to invest more in schools for the future of the new generations ;-D congratulations on your post and for your curie vote

Thank you for your comment.

I do agree that a big part of teaching is managing the students which does require patience and poise.

Having the parents / family do homeschooling on top of regular schooling helps a lot. The ideal is to have schools teach everything to students but this is not possible. There are too many topics to cover.

I see a lot of need (on the interwebs at least) for students learning critical thinking in which I do agree with. The thing I wonder is what kind of critical thinking is this being referred to? Is it the logic part and/or the critical thinking associated with math and stats?

Teachers here in Canada (Ontario province specifically) are funded well by taxes. Some teachers her though are a bit too comfortable and can get lazy. Not sure about teachers everywhere else. Investing in teachers from govt. funding is similar to infrastructure investment as there is expected return in the future.
