in my opinion there are too much teachers who are not good for this job and either school or university nowadays is just a business affair than an educational one!

I agree with you.Many teachers now only know how to earn more money.Although students can learn a lot besides what the teacher teaches,students can learn easier,better and more if the teacher teaches the right things.

I am a student of a university... and I, right now, am pressured with all the requirements that needs to be done.. I am in a course which was not my choice, but my family's choice... and that gives more pressure to me... more stress... more frustrations... I have lots of things that I wanna do in LIFE.. but all these can't be possible... so much sacrifice and commitments is needed.. And I'm runnin' out of fuel...hahah Well, this is life... Maybe i'll just enjoy every minute of my life... smile and laugh amidst the struggle...

Well speaking from a students' perspective, nobody likes to do homework, or take exams. But in actuality I consider college as my job. The homework and exams are just part of something that needs to be done for my career. I think that these pressures are things that help further prepare us for the "real world." as many of you know college is one step away from that realness.

I don't think those are considered pressures because homeworks, exams, etc are considered assessments to make sure that you have learned from your teachers. As for looking for a good university as high school and looking for job, I think that it is just a way of life. You have to get a degree in order to land in a good job. Your chances will be bigger and wider if you are from a respected university. Aside from that, you don't want to waste your money in a school not accredited by the government or not good enough to help you get a job afterwards. Though sometimes, it oesn't follow that you seek a job after college, you can do it even while studying or as soon as you can or if you need one. Your job will compensate you financially so that you have something to use for yourself. You don;t want to be your in your parents' burden forever right?
