Mother Rejects Negative Feedback Of The Teacher

March 15th, 2010 by

www.buzztab.com – A school teacher in North Carolina is in hot waters due to his inappropriate conduct with her student. Rex Roland is a teacher at Enka Middle School in Candler. The mother of the kid felt offended on the teacher’s castigating style of teaching and told that her child was bullied by the teacher many times and she does not want the teacher to continue this inept practice.

Her mother Patty told the media that her child was given a vocabulary assignment and Roland found it below the requisite standard but rather than limiting herself to award a poor grade she wrote “loser” on the assignment. Some weeks ago, the word “loser” was written twice on the child’s assignment. The Buncombe County School District issued its opinion on the matter and told that it is some sort of personal issue which is being investigated.

The surprising thing about this issue is

that there are some parents who are supporting the teacher for this style of teaching and are of the view that this is a tactic used by the teacher to stimulate a dormant student to perform well. But the issue is quite controversial and polemic.

Although there might be such students that can be stimulated by the use of fear and insult yet there is a consensus of educational psychologists over this issue and they always recommend positive feed back to students to enhance their motivation level and reject negative feedback as a tool to stimulate a dormant student because negative feedback just complicates the situation and undermines the motivational level of the student.
