Women Are Better Teachers

The common trend now is that there are more women that work as an educator than the men. However, does this mean that women are generally better teachers?

Female teachers are generally more patient than male teachers. This allows students to bond with the teacher, making it easier to learn.

When teachers are gentle towards their students, the students tend to take advantage of that and make noise in class, with no control at all. Being gentle just make students noisier and less disciplined than they usually are.

It does not mean that students take advantage of a female teacher's gentleness. Many female teachers whom I have seen know how to control the class in a patient manner. Besides, many there are many female teachers like in the United States. They love their jobs and have no problem at all with their class. If problems arise from a teacher's patientness, the female teachers would have quit their jobs in frustration.

Exactly, Female teachers are too patient than male teachers. Its not that male teachers are not patient. They are patient only at the right side and if the student is doing wrong ofcourse he will scold him/her. Thats what a student a good student.

It is true that female teachers are gentle with their students. But there are some male teachers who lack dedication in teaching students. They would just allow the class to be noisy as it is.

It is true that a small number of students lack dedication in teaching, but does that mean that all women teachers are 100% dedicated to their job? I'm sure all of you have teachers of all kinds and surely you aren't lucky enough to get dedicated teachers throughout your whole life. This means that even women teachers have the lack of dedication in teaching.

Furthermore, there have been frequent news reports about male teachers who abuse their students in a sexual manner. Female teachers are rarely seen doing that due to their passion for teaching.

In education, a teacher is a person who provides schooling for others. Thus, crimes are not taken account in determining what a good teacher is, but more of how the teacher can transfer knowledge to the student efficiently. When you say that male teachers may commit abusive crimes, it does not make women better teacher and it just makes males seen as the gender who does more crime than the other.

If a male has a higher tendency to abuse students, I would say that female teachers are more trustworthy. It has been observed in newspapers, the horrible effects of abuses caused by male teachers. Many suicides have been reported linking to that. It is generally safer to have female teachers. If not, why would there be so many girls' schools around the world?

It is not true that a male would always take a decent income job. Examples are seen clearly, like in the military force. Most of the soldiers probably have their own family already. In fact, they are also helping to contribute to the country.

A job such as teaching requires patience and also forgiveness. Females have that personality in them. Male s are less patient and forgiving. Say, if a student forgets to do his homework, a punishment is bound to be put upon him. This can lead to depression.

Teachers will know the right punishment to give a student to ensure that is not too severe to cause depression, nor too light to be taken for granted. Thus, irresponsible teachers can come from both genders and depression is caused not only by irresponsible male teachers, but irresponsible female teachers as well.

True. There are irresponsible female teachers too. Regarding that, it is naturally helpless. But I have read newspapers daily. Based on my observations, I find that there are more men who posses that abusive habit. So it is safer for women to be teachers.

In the United States, the government have opened girls' schools and boys' schools to segregate the masculine and feminine. Besides preventing premature coupling, the step is to protect female teachers and students from abuse by the males teachers.

I mean, my best teacher was a Jesuit Priest, and I'm an atheist and he was a he. But instinctually women are better at nurturing and communication in general. For the majority of school-age children that is important, and as a majority women are better at it. So generally, yes, they are better teachers.

Individually though, anyone is capable of being a great teacher, regardless if they have a penis.

As a matter of fact,female teacher are better in elementary education,because children feel more comfortable with a female than male teachers.

It has been observed that there are more female teachers in almost every school. Why is that so? One reason could be because of the lack of confidence in male teachers in educating the students.

The reason of the lack of males in the society of educators is due to the lower income compared to other job opportunities which a person can pursue. Being the supporter of a whole family, the male will obviously find a high income job to support their family's finance! As opposed to a female, who take things such as contribution to society as the main thing in choosing a job because they do not have to worry to much about finance - the husband does most of it! Which is why there are more female teachers than male teachers. Thus, this has nothing to do with the lack of confidence in men and does not make women better teachers than men

Depends on what we're talking about here, but there are more female teachers than male. And it's always the female, whether we're talking about animals or humans, who teach the young. The male species usually just donates his sperm, or does very little to help raise and teach the offspring. In bird species we will see more male figures helping out, but that's about it.

What determines a better future is not the gender of the teacher, but more of the passion in doing your job. If you are motivated in your job, you will definitely find better ways to improve your teaching methods regardless of your gender, which will help students absorb more knowledge during teachings.

I agree with your point. But I want to add in that most males prefer more challenging jobs, such as architecture. Most females, however, have passion for teaching.

What makes teaching an intrinsically less challenging job than something like architecture?

How challenging a job is depends to a large extent on the abilities and attitude of the worker.

But if male can put in dedication to teaching as females do, they can also achieve the same teaching results, which does not tip the scale to one side.

I'd love to know what makes teaching unchallenging.

I think it's one of the most challenging jobs! You have to maintain classroom control, write lessons that are engaging, assess your students, communicate with parents, motivate students, and deal with all the varying skill levels within your classroom.

You are a coward for these reasons:

1) You make a debate declaring an outrageous point of view

2) You then decide to take the most easiest side of the debate

3) Leaving others to fight for your own statement

4) the side you have picked is larger and therefore more likely to have more supporters,in reality this debate is woman teachers vs woman and male teachers.

I honestly don't care whether you made that statement or not the fact that you have published it under your name makes it so.

Well, I could go with the PC answer in saying "it all depends on the individual", but instead, I'll go with a more bullshit scientific approach:

Women, in some ways, can be better teachers because of their tendency to be more nurturing. Women, of course, are biologically engineered by nature to be better at raising young children. So, it would be easy to presume that women would be better when it comes to teaching young children.

HOWEVER! what about older students? Now, in today's culture, it makes a very little difference in whether the teacher is male or female. But, at the same time, it makes subtle differences that are neither good nor bad. In some ways, having a male teacher will benefit the student, but in other ways, having a female teacher will benefit them in a separate but equal way.

but once again, referring to older students, a male teacher will possibly be better because males would be better at teaching the students life lessons through a logical, analytical mentality.

And here's another major whammy: For which ages should a student be taught by a certain gender of a teacher? What kind of students should be taught by what kinds of teachers? Is it important to increase diversity or to actually separate the different classes?

In all honesty, those questions would require so much analysis of people in general, and it is likely that we'll never actually get an answer. Teachers can highly influence students, and depending on the teacher, it could take that student in completely different routes when it comes to personality development.

To me, whether you have a male teacher or a female teacher, it really makes no difference (in a positive to negative scale). Personally, I seem to prefer male teachers, but that's because I identify with males more.

What? Female teachers are the worst. Especially if they are cute. You're there trying to learn but your hormones are like all going nuts and all you can think about is your teacher and you... you know.... Maybe female teachers are bad for boys and male teachers are bad for girls ;)

Both male and female have their styles in teaching, and there are also different styles that males use to teach and different styles females use to teach. It doesn't matter on the gender, but more of the approach the teacher uses to approach the right batch of students!

Remarkably, you have achieved thus much in one line:

a) You have contradicted yourself.

b) You have accentuated a disparity in people.

c) You have declared disparity in people to be an illusion.

d) You have confused people with vegetables.

e) You have exposed your idiocy.

I challenge anybody to exceed you.

I generally thought women would be better teachers than men, but through my experiences in general the men tend to be better. Mostly it's because they care more about the actual content of the work and not if different colours were used and pictures were drawn/stuck on.

I think men are better teachers and here's why. By the way I'm a guy currently in 9th grade..

The past woman teachers that I have had never seem interested in teaching, while men are always so organized and teach with such passion. It seems as if woman know a lot of there stuff but the disorganization just kills it. Also I think male teachers are a lot nicer and always are same mood. female teachers sometimes burst and show too much emotion.

this is just my opinion . out of all the teachers ive had in my "school" life ive always liked male teachers better, especially in history.
