    OP, do you have many friends? Because you're not being very nice to the ones you do have. If you think it takes virtually no effort to become a teacher, why not contribute to society and become one?

    Honestly. This place is a viper's nest at times.
    Did you read the OP? This "friend" refers to her child as "it" and thinks slavery is fine. No one said it takes no effort to teach, just that some people can fluke degrees and make poor teachers. I think you are a bit out of line tbh. You can't complain about this vipers nest while making bishy comments about who does and doesn't have a degree etc.

    OP my DHs XW just did a teaching degree and can't spell to save her life. She received passes all through. Nothing higher, and struggled like hell. She's not very bright either and has some very strange ideas- I worry for my stepkids let alone any other young minds she tries to shape!

    Oh so you take hearsay as gospel now? Yes, I did read the OP and I cringed and thought, thank god I don't have her as a friend. It's no wonder things deteriorate as they do in this forum with comments from people that have absolutely no foundation in fact.

    I'm not complaining. I'm calling it as I see it. Quite frankly I'm surprised that grown women (massive assumption there I agree) can act in this way; ie just slag a person and an entire profession for absolutely no good reason.

    I would imagine that it would be a wonderful luxury to sit back and judge when you yourself haven't done the hard yards to be able to empathise.

    What are you talking about? I work as a community worker, I do contribute to society in my own way.. And many of the replies were from people who are or are studying teaching. I am confused. Do you know this person so you are defensive or something? Lol.. I have a lot of respect for teachers. My mum is a teacher. I have never ever in this thread made any assumptions about teachers. I am just curious about how this particular person became a teacher. she isn't smart, and in my opinion, teachers are usually fairly intelligent and good with people. Your reply was so rude, I never said it takes no effort to become a teacher. I would assume it normally does, I have plenty of friends who have or are studying teaching and do extremely long pracs and study a lot. You don't know this person supposedly so why are you defending her?! If you did know her, you would be shocked that she has a teaching degree

    Yes, yes it is. Isn't it a shame that people are concerned with the welfare of the education system. Good on you for coming in and putting them in their place, you big hero you.

    OP, it depends on the Uni. I have an old friend (whom I don't see anymore for other reasons) who was failing education at a top uni. Somehow she managed to get into another uni and is currently teaching primary school children. I always check the staff photos of any prospective school to make sure she's not there. Harsh? Probably, but I can't keep her from the crappy teachers I don't know, the least I can do is keep her from the I ones I do know.

    Yep. I think you can, without a doubt.
    I have 2 friends that are teachers and neither can spell to save their lives.

    I also mustn't forget the person I know doing a teaching degree that doesn't like kids but wants lots of holidays. Lawd.

    I guess I'm fortunate, all the teachers I know are lovely people and I would be more than happy to let them teach my kids

    Your friend sounds like a nightmare though!

    I think it's possible to fluke most uni courses. I did two undergraduate degrees and didn't find any of them particularly strenuous. On the other hand, I do know what the Holocaust was....

    Yes it is a forum full of anonymous people. So no, it is not like I can prove to you that I'm not making this up.. And that's really the thing about online forums.. But at no point did I slag out all teachers or any teachers actually but this person. And I'm not sure what you mean about doing the hard yards to empathise? I haven't got a teaching degree no. I should have added a disclosure statement perhaps. This thread does not reflect my opinion about other teachers, and I am just an uneducated woman who is not allowed an opinion on the type of people who I would like to become teachers, so please don't take anything I say seriously. I have known this person for 10 plus years btw, and so I am not just judging some stranger. I am judging someone I have known for a very long time, and who once told me that the fallopian tube was in the ear canal

    My reply was honest and without malice.

    I simply challenged what you said. You have mistaken it for being rude.
    I point out too that I never implied that you were a non contributory factor of society nor was I criticising you personally.

    My comments were about the remarks made about the target of your query and the teaching profession. Again I did not attribute all of those remarks to you. Simply put, I didn't agree with your opinion. You will come across this in life: people who won't agree with you. That doesn't mean you have to counter with accusations, particulary baseless ones.

    I've made my point so rather than move in circles I'll leave it here. Being straightforward does not equate to being rude. Unless, that is, you find something in your comments shameful enough to want to have to defend
