There is a well-known Chinese saying which translates into English as “Strict teachers produce outstanding students?” In my opinion, this saying is partly correct. Below are some of my views.
First, I want to define what an outstanding student is. I think an outstanding student not only has good academic results but also has good discipline as well as balanced development in various aspects. Second, I think a strict teacher offers strict and quite harsh training to the students to train students in different aspects.
Undoubtedly, strict teachers can produce outstanding students in some cases, when the students are obedient to the strict teachers, Strict teachers may provide exercise to the students after teaching and force them to do. This can make sure that the students will do the exercise. Those students who work hard can learn and understand what they have learnt through the exercise. In addition, strict teachers emphasize good discipline such as handing in homework on time, keeping silence in class and having good studying attitude. If those outstanding factors can be achieved, outstanding students can be produced. In general, strict teachers offer trainings to students which are of higher standards and requirements than other learning methods. This training method is efficient only if it is suitable for the students, and only if the students are obedient enough.
Strict Teachers are Great Teachers In modern society, teachers are expected to give positive encouragement and show understanding to students. Actually, it contradicts the traditional Chinese wisdom. There is a well-known Chinese saying which translates into English as ‘Strict teachers produce outstanding students’. Whether this statement holds true has aroused heated debate among educationalists. ...
However, this training method is not suitable for all students. As seen, not all students produced by strict teachers are outstanding students. In other words, strict teachers also produce students that are not outstanding. They may have good academic results but are not all-rounded or self-disciplined. That is why I think the saying in not totally correct. I believe different training methods suit different students. Some students need harsh training methods, other may love mild training methods more and some may like more interesting methods. For the students who cannot study well under strict and harsh training, they just cannot study efficiently using these methods. In this case, strict teachers cannot produce outstanding students.
Nowadays, active learning is more acceptable than passive learning. Active learning requires more team work, discussions and interactions between students than passive learning, which involves teaching by teachers only. In the present society, education in this way is not very effective, teaching in this method cannot produce many outstanding students. As active learning is more acceptable and effective nowadays and students are less willing to receive traditional education, teaching by strict teachers is not very popular among students. If they cannot accept such training methods by strict teachers, they may rebel against the teachers. This ruins the learning atmosphere in class and even destroys the discipline for extreme cases. This not only cannot produce outstanding students but also produce bad students. Another emphasis is self-learning is important now, Strict teachers inhibit the chance of students to learn themselves as strict teachers often give work to students which limit the students’ heart to learn themselves spontaneously. Therefore, the production of outstanding students by strict teachers is reduced and become not efficient.
To conclude, I think strict teachers can produce more outstanding students in the past. However, due to the change to education tradition, the saying of “Strict teachers produce outstanding students” is not totally correct now.
