My teacher treats everyone in my class like dirt except her teacher's pet. The teacher's pet gets away with everything and it feels as if the teacher hates everyone else in my class. It’s just not fair, and everyone knows it. I've talked to her about it, but she doesn't seem to care. I just want her to treat everyone equally, but how?
Before we go anywhere, thumbs up for you to trying to make a difference in the class. It takes a lot of guts to confront your teacher about something like that so it seems like you’ll be making some changes around in no time!
One thing you want to do is make your opinion clear. And when I say your opinion, I mean the ENTIRE class. You said it yourself that everyone (except for the teacher’s pets) knows about the unfairness, right? Well, bring all those thoughts together so that you can get some friends on your side to help you.
Once you’ve got your friends on your side, it’s time to turn up the notch on this whole teacher-student confrontation. Your teacher may have brushed off your talk with her because you were alone. But if you can get your friends to voice their opinions too, she’ll get the fact that this isn’t something she can avoid. Make it crystal-clear that you want to be treated equally.
Is your teacher still not budging after that? Then, you’re gonna have to bring in the bigger forces: the ’rents or principal. Let your parents know what’s been going on at school. Explain to them how your teacher treats you and your classmates. Oh and BTW, this isn’t just to your parents, but to your friends’ paps and moms as well. Make sure that everyone is included and on the same page.
I know the whole process might seem a bit daunting, but I can see that this is something that’s really bothering you and something that you can change as well. So don’t give up and good luck!
