Why don’t students pay attention in class?
Education is what a country needs to improve their labour force. A country rich in materials doesn’t mean that country rich in education.To have a good education system, each country has to focus on details, on what makes the students interested in learning. When interested in learning and having motivation in it, students find it easier to get knowledge and skills. Here are some points that make students distract in class. First, teachers don’t provide them enough inspiration. They just come in class to finish their work unwillingly. They don’t know that students are their employees. So to make the employees work efficiently, the employers must know how to encourage them, how to make them compete each other in a healthy working environment.Some teachers think that they are number one. What they say is the only right and good thing that their students must learn. Actually, thanks to the internet, students nowadays can access to new information very quicly and easily. So the knowledge from teachers now is just one source of knowledge not the only one. Teachers have to know their position in class now. They are just facilitators. The facilitators have to be flexible. Sometimes they have to admit that they are not Mr or Mrs “know all”.And they need to check the information they are not sure yet and will inform their students later. The second point is that teachers don’t have all the power to decide what is good for their students because what they want for the students are prevented by the seniors in higher positions. Not all the seniors are qualified enough. They are in that position due to connections not due to good ability or good qualifications.They set up rules or regulations so that they can control the teachers. As a result, instead of investing time in preparing good lessons for students, teachers have to spend a large amount of time on things for the seniors.
The third thing is finacial problem.The salary teachers receive every month doesn’t make the children, the partners at home happy. How can they make students at school happy when they can’t make the spouses, the kids cheerful. It is such a hard task for them.They have to do part time jobs. They have to do other things to increase their home buget. Consequently, students are the ones suffering from the lack of enthusiasm, up to date procedures and money. As long as these things are solved, students will be interested in lessons at school.
