How Difficult Teaching Students Now

As a teacher for over a decade, I had seen how the quality of education degenerated. I could very well see this from the works of my students. Teaching them programming is something, teaching them how to analyze problems is entirely different.

I won't say I was a good student myself since I also struggled before. But, one thing forsure, majority of the students now have taken for granted schooling for games, cellphones, gimmicks among other things.

Whenever, they receive their poor scores, they seem happier that they still tease their classmates. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! I can't help but smile and pity their parents at the same time. Who should we blame anyway?
