Whose Fault is it When a Student Falls Asleep in Your Class?


Is it disrespectful of a student to fall asleep in class? Of course it is.

But at the end of the day, the fault has to go to the teacher.

Why do teachers have a sense of entitlement when it comes to good behaviour and attitude.

“I’m a teacher, therefore I deserve your attention and respect.”

This is not right. We have to gain their attention and earn some respect. It may be rude to sleep in your teacher’s class, but it is also unacceptable to take shortcuts in your teaching and come to school with a lackluster and unimaginative lesson.

The teacher in the clip above had obviously been pushed over the edge. Perhaps he should have sprayed the fire extinguisher liquid over his work program instead of the student.
