Personally, I have come to the conclusion that the University system makes absolutely no sense. Students pay teachers to educate us, yet they are then allowed to tell us how much we're learning. The whole situation seems akin to a boss paying her employee to clean toilets and the employee turning around and telling the employer how much she is or isn't happy with the cleaning job. If I'm paying someone to do my housekeeping, I'll be the one to tell the receiver of my hard-earned money exactly how well they did. Shouldn't it be the same with education?
We are currently paying a large amount of money to attend this University and receive an education. If I have paid to be taught something, shouldn't there be a repercussion for the teacher rather than, or at least as well as, the student when knowledge has not been taught?
Good question. Here's the answer: NO!
Teaching does consist of opening your skull and pouring in knowledge. If you don't work hard, if you don't master the material, then no matter how good you may feel about your expertise and understanding, you do not deserve an A. Your tuition does not, and should not, guarantee your automatic success. Our job is to help you gain actual expertise and understanding and to give you honest and impartial feedback. Ultimately, your education is your responsibility; we merely provide a fertile environment in which to cultivate that education. We are not here to help you feel good about yourself; we are here to help you learn. And since you will never learn if you do not see your own ignorance, it is our job, our duty, to point it out.
Sometimes the truth hurts. You're an adult; deal with it.
