We just cant get across to them that what they do now will effect them for the rest of their lives, but they don't give a shit, people ask me why I am thinking of leaving this college, it's simple, in my 30 years of working in education I have never met so many student with low grades from school, without Maths and English, and generally being complete numpties.
So, what can I do, nothing is the answer, I have tried being the good cop, the bad cop, the caring cop, mummy & Daddy cop, nothing works, so now I have lost the will to put effort into these little shits with no return. Do I care, yes of course I do, i feel that O have failed in my job as their educator, but I can't do any more than I have already done. I need to retire from this place, sit in my shed and enjoy what's left of my life.
I feel my grumpiness returning, big time.
