Can A Strict Teacher Be A Good Teacher?
Most of us have had a strict teacher at one time or another, and some of us have had several. When the semester was finally over, or we moved on to the next grade, it was often good riddance. On the other hand, there was the occasional strict teacher whom we came to admire, and came to respect, if not to love. At the one extreme you have the strict teacher who is, for lack of a better word, a dictator. With this type of a teacher it’s often “my way or the highway”. High school kids can often put up with such a teacher if it’s the only teacher of that type they have. Grade school kids can really suffer though, especially since they have the same teacher all day, day in and day out. College students, who feel getting a poor grade may be worth the price paid, may rebel.
