Have you people been in a situation when you feel that the teacher is teaching something totally wrong and you have got a strong proof too....but the teacher won't agree!!!! What should one do if he knows that the teacher is misleading the class!!!!!

If a teacher is not agreeing with you that he or she is wrong. You told that you have also proof that the teacher is totally wrong. If you are successfully proving it but teacher is not agreeing with you. It shows that teacher is not accepting the mistakes. It is another mistake to not accept the mistake. If a person does not accept his or her mistake could be considered as bigger than the previous mistake he or she made. You pointed out but he and she is not accepting, so you should be quite now and start to LOL but only in your heart so as it may not make the teacher angry.

yeah right!!! bt some days ago some one suggested me to talk to the principal and I decided to talk to another teqher and he than took over th problem!!! and now the problem is solved!!! The teacher did know he was wrong bt was not accepting it because of shame!!! so the teacher with whom I had contacted he came in the class and cleared everything to the students and also told the students not to give any impression to the teacher that they have been reinformed and also that we should not make him feel ashamed !!!! But I think dis discussion should continue on and we should discuss on what to do if any one of your seniors or elders is wrong and is not accepting it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

things have changed a lot since that happened to me,but the same thing may still happen today,I was 8 years old and comng from western Canada,I spoke english,my grandmother took the entire family to Eurpoe where I learned to speak and understand the frech language,when we returned,one of the subject I had to take was French in school,this was fine,except,the teacher was teaching the mixed french of Quebec,which is a combimation of english,french and native indian dialects, when I corrected her on the proper way to pronounce the word,she sent me to the principle and had me removed from her class.thanks to that twerp,I can no longer speak french at all.

I just try to make her realize that I was not wrong, and it was she who was wrong.What I do is shout in front of the assembly or the class so that everyone can hear what I am talking about. And if she understand her mistake then i tell her that its okay, maam. I won't repeat it again. Thats how a problem is solved very easily.

If you're absolutely positive that the teacher is getting it wrong, and this can't be something that is open to interpretation. Facts, not theories you know? If that's the case, I would contact the principal and let him/her know what was going on. I think that's the only thing you can do, really. But understand that if the teacher is disciplined or instructed to change what she's doing, and you've already discussed the issue with her, she's going to know who "told on her" and she might take it out on your child.
