都是学生的错吗?

So it’s always discussed about how students who act up in class make it so hard for the teachers.

那些在课堂上捣乱的学生总是让老师们头疼不已,而关于这个话题的讨论也总是经久不绝。

While this may be true, not enough adults realize that the kids are not the only ones to blame.

也许这是不争的事实,但是,不是所有的成年人都能意识到,孩子并不是唯一的罪魁祸首。

Speaking as a sixteen year old who attends a public high school – you always get at least one teacher who walks in the first day and demands respect. They say they’ve been teenagers and so they understand. So why don’t they understand why they get a bad reaction

如果你是一个在公立高中上学的16岁学生——那你肯定不止一次的经历这样的情景,老师在上课的第一天就告诉你,你必须要尊重他。他们还总是说,他们也曾经是青少年,所以他们完全理解学生。可是,为什么他们就不知道当自己颐指气使的要求尊重却适得其反的真正原因呢?

from the class when they waltz in demanding this respect? In the TEENAGE world – we have to EARN respect amongst each other. And anyone of us who acts like they’re better gets shot down. Know your place.

在青少年的世界里,我们必须通过尊重别人来赢得尊重。那些自以为是的人需要认清自己的位置。

What I hate the most, are the teachers who don’t care about us, and yet still pretend to.

我最讨厌的就是有的老师根本就不关心我们,却偏偏假惺惺地装腔作势。

“I understand what you’re going through, don’t worry about it.”

“我很理解你们现在的经历和感觉,别担心!”

SHUT UP, PLEASE. That’s just it – you don’t understand. You don’t know a thing about us unless we tell you, so stop pretending like you actually care when you don’t.

请您不要再说了!问题的关键是,你们根本就不了解!如果我们不告诉你们,你们其实一点都不了解!所以,不要再装作你们很了解、关心我们了!

We’re NOT stupid, and we see right through you. We know you don’t think we’re smart enough.

我们不傻!我们早就看清楚了,我们也心知肚明,你们根本就不觉得我们很聪明。

It’s so easy for you to stick a label on us that we’re out of control, out of line, out of our minds. But really, we’re only reacting to you trying to downsize us.

您可以轻易地给我们贴上标签,说我们叛逆、和老师唱反调、心不在焉。但是事实上,我们只是对你们对我们的小觑做出反应。

I would much rather have a teacher who blatantly doesn’t care about me and just wants to do their job and ‘git ‘er done!’ appose to somebody who doesn’t really want to know about it but sugarcoats their appearence so it seems like they’re interested.

我宁愿我的老师公开表示他对我们并不关心,他只是想完成工作,也不愿意有一个并不在乎我们却又用糖衣炮弹迷惑我们,装模作样的老师。

I had a math teacher one year who was amazed when we leaked a problem or two to her. She is one of those teachers who assumes everyone perfect life, or close to it.

我曾经有一个教了我一年的数学老师,当我们向她透露我们的些许困难时,她竟会无比惊讶。在她眼里,所有人的生活都应该是完美的,至少是近似完美的。

Sorry to inform you, but not all of us live with both parents, a dog, and have a picket white fence outside our large houses which we can afford with our parent’s large income. Not all of us go to church either!

但是我很抱歉的告诉您,不是我们所有的人都有双亲,都有宠物狗,也不是所有我们的父母都能在房子的外面修上白色的栅栏,更不是我们所有人都会去教堂的!

The majority of kids have divoced parents, small houses, and for some of us – our lives aren’t worth talking about.

我们大部分孩子都生活在离异的家庭中,住在很小的房子里,甚至我们中的有些人的生活根本就不值得一提。

You teachers don’t know what may have happened five minutes before class. So maybe that’s why your student is upset and acting out.

老师们根本就不知道在上课前的五分钟发生了什么,所以,就更不知道学生们为什么会烦躁、捣乱了!

All in all, I like all of my teachers. But what I’ve written above – I’ve experienced myself. My cousin actually had her history teacher call her a terrorist-enabler.

但是话说回来了,我很爱我的老师们,我之所以会写以上的内容——这些都是我的亲身经历。我表妹的历史老师就一直叫她恐怖分子教唆者!

He can’t be fired due to seniority.

而他因为教龄长而不会被解雇。

What are the they thinking when people like this are hired to teach children?

那么,当他们雇佣这种人来教育小孩的时候又是怎么想的呢?

So you see, it’s not always the BIG, BAD, teenagers. Plenty of us are just confused about ourselves and are still figuring things out.

所以你看,并不是所有的问题都是由学生引起的,我们大部分都只是对自身感到困惑,并一直在试图解决这些问题。

Give us a chance, and maybe we’ll open up to you.

给我们一点空间,我们也会尝试向你们敞开心扉!
