Easy Teacher V Hard Teacher

EDITOR, The Tribune.

REMEMBER when you were in high school or college and you took the easy class, with the easy teacher, for the easy A, which made you look really smart but contributed nothing substantive to your wisdom or character? And then you hit the real world and realised you didn't know a Christ thing, and that class - and that teacher - was a complete waste of time?

And then there was the class you took that was hard as hell, the teacher mean as ever, you barely got a C, and it made you look less than stellar, but you knew the knowledge and/or experience would count for something great and purposeful one day? And you hit the real world and you thanked God Almighty that you took that hard class?

Well, that's the consecutive difference between the Perry Christie and Hubert Ingraham leadership experiences.

This is a partisan opinion and don't have anything to do with the example you use.

LOL I did not see this letter going that way. I thought it had something to do with education. That last line caught me off guard. lol

Hahah, so did I. I was really thinking about teachers, education, and the real world. Did NOT see Perry Christie and Hubert Ingraham coming!

Amazing that we get bent out of shape over little things. The writer never stated who was the easy teacher and who was the hard teacher. If one happens to be upset over the writer details, then if means that you must consider the leader that you support in particular to be the easy teacher. However, the trivia of the writer is good. Sparks us toward critical thinking and analysis.

In the body of the letter the example was a definite comparison between easy and hard, also the order that it was in starting from easy to hard, so if the writer use PGC name first and HAI name second draw a common since conclusion; if the example was definite than the real world scenario has to be definite also.

In hindsight I have to give the writer wrong for assuming that all of the readers of this letter would be students of the English Language. "Moncurcool", when drawing a comparison (this is a comparative piece of writing) the aspects described first, second, etc are ascribed to the names that are mentioned first, second, etc. So - 'easy class, easy teacher' goes to Perry Christie and 'hard as hell class, mean as ever teacher' goes to the Honourable Hubert A. Ingraham. Also, the purpose of the phrase "consecutive difference" is to point to the fact that the order of the descriptions given are ascribed to the order in which the names are given. No charge for the lesson.

What is the point in having a hard teacher when you learn something that you like so much, up to the point you only need a mentor to guide your steps and to correct your future plans, not a simple teacher to give you homework for the next day. This is why I fell in love with the leadership field. I had a teacher during college that was more like a parent to us, he gave us some important life lessons.

Its depend on the environment and the concern of the teacher. Sometimes a hard teacher of the class becomes easy for few off one and some times easy become hard.

I have been told by many teacher elementary and high school teachers that I have the hardest job there is (7th grade) I completely disagree with them, afraid kinder kids and admire the high school teachers who will guide their children in college. each relative.

I totally agree with you! Many times those "bad" teachers teach us the most important and useful things in life. On the other hand, I think that these kind of teachers are the most interested to make you learn something useful for the future. Elly
