Students lazy? How about teachers?

Students constantly get called lazy because they may be as willing to learn information that isn’t useful to them, but has anyone thought about lazy teachers can be?

An example: Have you ever taken a quiz or test, and you had an answer marked wrong that you were sure was correct? It very well may have been. Teachers tend to use grading keys – even on questions that could have multiple correct answers. Often times, you’ll put down an answer that IS correct, and when you question why it was marked wrong, the teacher will reply, “Because that’s not what we learned in this chapter.” I have to wonder, what’s wrong with that? They learned another solution to a problem, obviously outside of your class. You’d kind of figure that a teacher would be enthusiastic about a student wanting to learn something outside of class. I guess not.

Teachers are just as lazy as students. Has anyone thought about how little skill it honestly takes to be a teacher? Almost every teacher I’ve had teaches everything almost word for word as their teacher’s manual says. You don’t even have to know about the subject you’re teaching. Imagine if brain surgeons used this same method?
