    Teachers and respect.

    I was wondering about this at school today, so I decided to post it here.

    If teachers, at school, treat you with no respect whatsoever, is it wrong to treat them the same way? Most parents say to their children, "Treat others how you yourself wish to be treated." - or something along the lines of that. Anyway, its fine for a teacher to shout/scream/spaz out on you if you misbehave constantly, or at a number of times, but on other occasions teachers shout/scream/spaz out on you/other people for the most minute reasons. Basically, if a teacher genuinely dislikes you, and pretty much ignores you in class, or speaks to you in an inappropriate manner, is it reasonable for you to disrespect them back? Of course, in the end, anybody can/will put up a good argument against a teacher, and they just interrupt you halfway through, or just give you bullshit at the end of your sentence. Now I've just blabbered on a bit, so I'll say this again.

    Basically, if a teacher genuinely dislikes you, and pretty much ignores you in class, or speaks to you in an inappropriate manner, is it reasonable for you to disrespect them back?

    I respect the person, not the profession, if I know the person in question personally.

    I respect all of my teachers. It all depends on how you act first, because then you caused them to disrespect you first.

    Re: Teachers and respect.

    You are privileged to have such an abundant education system riddled with teachers and resources. You shouldn't disrespect something that is almost made to accommodate all your intellectual needs. That's unfairly abusing what's given to you, and overall selfish. Teachers usually go through much more work than the average student does and it should be natural for the student to respect that.

    Even if teachers get pissy, they're still working hard for your betterment.

    I don't respect teachers because they're teachers. If the teacher is an asshole or has not earned my respect, I will not respect him/her. Actually I had a run in with this today; my deputy head teacher thinks that I should respect him because he's my deputy head. I told him "no" and he got his panties in a bunch.

    I only have a problem with a few of my teachers. When they're rude to me I'm rude back. If they are nasty to you why should you be nice to them?

    It all depends on wether you have achieved their respect or not.

    If you work hard in class, behave, there's no way teacher is going to spaz out with a relevant reason.
    I myself am alot more clever than the average students in my class, this earns more respect.
