"What’s the most frustrating part about being teacher?"
"I think it’s getting increasingly difficult to convince my students that what I’m teaching is relevant to their lives. They see a world where the path to success is much more muddled, and social skills are beginning to seem more important than academics. It’s hard to instill the importance of memorization when information is so freely and instantly available."
I had the same attitude and outlook in college. Education in the US needs to evolve.
