In the past teachers used to be the major source of knowledge ,the leader and educator of their students ,they used to be the authority in the class, but nowadays teachers need to teach their learners how to gain the information and how to select and use them,but the main problem is that the role of the teacher is changing day by day ,and teachers face many problems with the students and their families .The parents blame the teachers for the failure of their kids and for their bad behaviours sometimes . Do you think the teachers role has changed because of the technical changes in the world that makes a teacher not the only source of information or it's the modern educational methods.
I think the student failure is really a teacher failure when a teacher fails to give positive feedback,and fails to use encouragement creatively . Teachers can provide the information and lead the students to the right way of gaining the information and applying it correctly,but students should also work hard to succeed and get high marks .
The question is : who is responsible for the failure of the students ? and why do you think the teacher's authority has changed?
