Not necessarily.. It's fine if it happens, but school is about learning basic skills.

But you have no basic skills. The only things you know how to do are lie and cheat. When you lose debates on this website, you ban whoever made you look stupid, and then continue pretending to argue with them to create the false impression that they are able to reply to you. When that fails you make your debates private access and continue asking questions to people who you know cannot answer them. You are quite literally the biggest idiot ever to write on the internet, absolutely and unequivocally without exception. You are a Nazi, you are fully aware that you are a Nazi, and you are yet somehow proud of this fact, despite being -- if you can even believe it -- JEWISH!!

Check the waterfall OP. He's doing it right now. He's pretending to argue with people he's banned from his debates, knowing they are unable to prove the things he is saying are false. And believe me, they are false. He is a dangerously nasty liar.

Hi, Bronto.

Not necessarily.. It's fine if it happens, but school is about learning basic skills.

Learning the skills is why the connections between the teacher and students (and for that matter, between students) are so important.

Teaching is not rocket science. Most of what anybody needs to know to deliver high school curriculum is a list of about 15 or 20 open-ended questions, and to have paid attention in high school. Almost anybody can do that. Even a computer program can do that. There is more to teaching than just delivering curriculum.

Significantly, the rest of the job is very difficult, and it is nearly impossible to teach someone how to do it well.

The nasty secret of the public education system is that the student is in charge of the quality of his or her education. It is not how good the school is, nor how well funded it is. Neither government policies nor money can improve the quality of a student's education, so ignore the politicians who promise to improve the education system, or make schools better. They cannot do it, no matter how much they raise your taxes.

In reality, curious and hardworking students will get a great education anywhere, even without a good teacher or sufficient funding. Indifferent and lazy students will get a crappy education no matter where they are, and no matter how good the school's funding is.

My experience as a teacher indicates that for at least half the students, the teacher is just an activities director, and really is not particularly important. For the other students, the teacher is significantly more important. The hard part of the teacher's job is to create and foster positive connections that motivate the otherwise lazy and indifferent students.

Higher school funding levels will never make that happen more often.

The nasty secret of the public education system is that it is very difficult to cheat and lie your way through it, which is why Bronto failed.

A poorly run classroom with excessive disruption would make it difficult for even attentive students to learn the material. Would you disagree?

Any activity which interrupts the scheduled curriculum of learning is to be strongly discouraged.

It should be recognised, that whilst interaction between classmates can be important and does help to develop social and face to face communication skills talking in class is still as disruptive as it always was and will retard the education of all pupils.

Connections in the classroom should only occur in when there is an organised and controlled debate with private conversations being restricted to school areas outside the classroom.
