Who Are Teachers’ Pets, Boys or Girls?
Nowadays, a growing number of people tend to think about a question: who do teachers like more?
Reading this table, we can get some information and analyse the result via the figures. Obviously, teachers favor girls over boys in primary school. As far as I concerned, the most indispensable reason is that girls are quiet, smart and well-behaved during that age. While in junior middle school, hat might seem to be no difference between boys and girls. In a word, there is no prejudice and gender discrimination at that time. Nevertheless things are getting change when coming to senior high school. The most
reasonable explanation is that girls are superior to boys in math and physics up to the age of ten, fall behind from then on. under that circumstance, teachers is shown to call on male in class far more than female students. While in college, teachers seem to have no preference in student because of the less attention and unawareness
It is obviously that the answer of such question changes frequently as students growing up and here is my analyze according to the chart.
First of all, girls, in my opinion, are much more welcomed in primary school. Over two-thirds of students believe that female students are teacher's pet in primary school. Second,
however, conclusion in senior middle school is quite different because half of students hold the view that it was boys that are teacher's pet. Thirdly, the circumstance in junior middle school as well as In college is between two extremes which means neither boys nor girls have advantage to be pets of teachers.
What conclusion can I draw is that the chart indicates us girls are more welcomed by teacher at low grades because they are not only quite gentle and quiet but also boys are naughty at the same time. As time goes by, though, such difference gradually disappear which lead to
such result. Last but not least, I hold the view that there is no sex, including boys and girls, can hold teachers' love forever
Rencently, a survey on"who are teachers' pets"has developed among students . According to the chart, we can easily find that the majority of pupil's answers are girls, the junior students said that all of them were favored, a lot of middle school students replied: "girls! ", while college students thought neither of them is teachers' pet.
So, why did the phenomenon occurred? I suppose the following reasons can account for it. In primary school, girls are generally obedient, while boys may be more naughty. Girls are good at reading and writing, but boys show nothing superior . Of course , teachers think more of girls. In junior school , boys perform as well as girls , so the teacher will think all of them are great. When go to the senior school , boys become more initiative and are more interested in mathematics, which can ignite teachers' enthusiasm of teaching. On the university , boys and girls have to rely on their own efforts to learn more, thus, the teachers can pay less attention. As far as I'm concerned, teachers shouldn't hold different attitudes to students'gender . Both girls and boys should be treated equally to have a better prospect.
Reading this chart, we can discover that most of the primary school students think girls are teachers' pets. In contrast, most of the high school students think boys are teachers' pets. While in junior middle schools and in colleges, the numbers of students who think boys or girls are teacher's pets are almost equally, more that they think it depends on teachers' mind. For this, its reasons are obviously. First, primary school teachers have to pay more attention to girls. In that not only girls are timid, but also boys may bully them. Second, high school teachers believe boys have more advantage to pay off and more likely to be rolled in
world-famous universities than girls meeting the challenge of college entrance examinations. Third, in junior middle schools and in colleges, teachers feel boys and girls have similar
capabilities, alternatives and so on. Moreover, university teachers know seldom students, not to mention who are their pets.
Nowadays, gender is not crucial. It is urgent to persuade teachers to care about gender in a reasonable way, especially elementary school teachers and high school teachers.
Is the opinion of the majority-in government or in any other circumstances-a poor guide? The entire idea of democracy centers around "majority rule", where laws and standards are put into of the citizens support it. However, if people concentrate on only the majority in each circumstance, they often forget the voices and rights of minorities. Simply because a person is in the minority of an opinion does not mean he can be ignored, for in a true democracy all the citizens are guaranteed the same rights. Thus in some circumstances strictly following the opinions of the majority is a poor guide to determining what actions to take.The days before America's Civil War, when slavery was prevalent, demonstrate that rule often fails to respect people's moral rights and liberty. The majority of white people in the early 1800's supported slavery because of the benefits they received from the blacks. Thus, the government reluctantly allowed slavery to be legal in America, despite the terrible sufferings of the slaves.And because the government believed "majority ruled",the slaves lived in such conditions until the Emancipation Proclamation was written during the bloody Civil War. Had the government not followed the opinions of people, slavery could have been abolished much sooner, and much suffering could have been avoided. Thus, in this circumstance of freedom vs. suppression, the opinion of the majority served as a poor guide to follow by the U.S. government.Furthermore, the effects of majority rule impact Americans today, for there are many unsolved, controversial issues such as abortion, stem-cell research, and homosexual marriages. In the case of "gay rights", the majority of Americans opposes people of the same sex marrying, and most of the states' laws reflect this opinion. However, ignoring the wishes of gays and lesbians by enacting these laws will leave many of them unhappy because they cannot legally "tie the knot" with the person they love. The U.S. Constitution declares that everyone has the right to pursue happiness, but by banning gay marriages, some may be barred from the happiness of marriage. In addition, many oppose stem cell research because they are angered by the fact that embryos are created and then destroyed. Once again, though, if the government passes a law banning such research, the minority may suffer. Stem cell research may save lives by using the cells to specialize in a certain area. Those who would benefit from the discoveries of stem cell research may die.We can learn from the experience of the great inventor Thomas Alva Edison that sometimes a series of things is really a precursor to success. The voluminous personal papers of Edison reveal that his inventions typically did not spring to life in a flash of inspiration but evolved slowly from previous works.
