Teachers give bad grades to students who don’t like?

Is correct that teachers give bad grades to students if they don’t like them?

In this article, we’re going to discuss this topic from different angles with concrete numbers and surveys.

Also, we will warn from some mistakes that students are making, which could influence their grades.

Do teachers give bad grades to students who don’t like them?

According to Edshource, The survey made for K-12 found that the trust in teachers dropped from 63% in 2019 to 57% in 2021. This indicates that professors and students don’t have an excellent relationship like it seems to be.

In other words, 4 out 10 don’t trust their teachers, which means don’t like them. It could be due to many reasons, the gradin is one of the principal problems from that.

In this list are the 9 principal reasons that could make a professor or teacher give a bad grade to a student.

  • personal conflicts with students
  • students who write formal complaints about their teachers
  • skipper classes
  • students who always correct professors
  • student’s who don’t do assignments
  • racist professors or teachers
  • sexual harassment
  • students who don’t respect teachers authority and so on

Some reasons are fair and others don’t, for students who don’t do their assignment it is normal that a teacher would not like them. It is a discipline question, So students do not have to expect a teacher or professor to love them.

This reflects for sure on grades, for students who are diligent doing their assignments and attend classes they will have bonuses and preferences, this is fair. But the dark side of that is taking things subjectively.

That is to say, giving bad grading or declining students grades. Unfortunately, many professors are doing that by taking things subjectively and lowering student grades from A to B or even worse. For what?. just because they didn’t love them about something they did before.

In the next paragraph, we’re going to trait the subject in more detail and document it with numbers that will help students to discover the real truth about this subject.

Teachers and students conflicts in the USA?

One survey that was conducted with psychology students and noticed in Wikipedia reports that:

  • 81% or eight out of 10 students experience sexual harassment in school
  • 38% of the students were harassed by teachers or school employees

while 6% of teacher students were assaulted by students for different reasons, this leads us to understand why the student’s trust of professors and teachers has been dressed by 6% during this last 2 years.

One of the principal reasons that make students hate teachers or disrespect them is grading problems. Many Students feel unfair and think that the grades they had were lower than they were worth.

This is normal because 90% of students look at grades as a relevant important thing in school or college more than education. Grades are the way to get a job or succeed in life. So they ignore the core and real reasons behind the education process.

37.8% of students are cheating around Unitate state, which means 8 million students are using illegal methods to pass exams.

All these numbers create a wide vision of the US education situation and the conflicts that make this system vulnerable. So we can’t deny that many professors or teachers don’t give good grades to students who don’t like them.

Does Professor gives bad grades for students skipping classes?

According to our article” Do professors care if you skip classes(6 things to know)” we found that the skip classes rate could reach up to 70% in the US, among college students. In other words, 14 million students don’t attend their classes.

The majority of students today are skipping classes which influences their grades. professors don’t like students skipping their classes because they see it as such a form of non-responsibility and disrespect to their values.

But the worst thing that can influence student grades and makes some professors unjustly give them bad grades is attending some classes and skipping others.

Students have to be sure about that: if a professor or teacher knows that he’s student attend with another professor and not with him. probably things aren’t going to be good for a student.

In this case, many students take things seriously and subjectively, which makes the student the only loser in this game.

Even if a professor is fair and doesn’t take things subjectively, the student will never dream about having additional support. That is to say:

  • no curving notes
  • no support in-office classes
  • correction exams indulgence
  • additional hours for understanding lectures
  • subejcts exmas recomendaitons

Does Professor gives bad grades for students who aren’t doing their assignments?

According to assign U 70% of students dislike homework. The majority of them hate homework and they also dislike their school teachers who assign so many tasks daily.

Professors hate thees kind of students who are not doing their assignments, which for sure reflect on their grades. It is fair and sometimes can go beyond that for some unfair cases.

Many students affirm that their professors have lowered their grades exams just because they don’t make their assignments. This problem happens with students who are good or intelligent but don’t show commitment and obedience to their professors.

Teachers love to force their authority in classrooms and don’t like students to go out of their control. The worst thing that can happen for a student is if he feels that his student is challenging him. Is a threatening feeling that has bad consequences.

Being humble is important for students, he has to be intelligent. Students can be good and better for some points discussion, but they don’t have ever disrespect their professors or put them in some embarrassing position.

4 steps to gain teachers’ respect and love

not doing assignments will influence harshly grades even for students who are intelligent or good. They have to follow this map that we will suggest to get respect and support from their professors.

Professors curve students grade exams if they like them?

On average professors curve grades between 5 to 10%, it is clear that not all students would not benefit from this increase. Certainly, Professors or teachers would have significant reasons to curve grades for students.

Professors or teachers will deny if you ask them if they curve or not, is normal they want to keep their credibility and reputation. They don’t want to be misunderstood by students.

In fact, professors or teachers make a differentiation between people who like them and people who don’t. professor curve notes for students who are:

  • Diligent work hard
  • who work hard and participate in classrooms
  • don’t mess up assignments
  • attend classes
  • have a good relationship with

So there is not a doubt that building a good relationship with a professor has its fruits. But the only way to do that is by proving diligence and responsibility.

if a student doesn’t work or do what it takes, nothing will change even if the professor is your father.

Racist professors or teachers give bad grades to students?

According to pewresearch More, 58% of Americans think that race relations got worse after the trump election. This wave has been reflected in all sectors even the educational field.

According to Guardian 1 of 3 schools, students suffer from racial discrimination in Australian schools. Many students suffer from this problem. In America 3 types of students are suffering from discrimination:

  • Black students
  • Hispanic students
  • Asian students

There is no arguing that racist professors could do anything. People have been killed cause of racism. So everything to expect from racist professors or teachers.

In his report new time said that complaints were about:

  • fraud
  • test tampering
  • theft of money and time giving (fake grades)
  • sexual harassment

giving a complaint against a teacher is hard and has consequences. So it is highly expectable for students who complain about their professors to get bad grades. professor or teacher becomes an enemy.

Once a student sends or writes a formal complaint about his teacher, he immediately has to start things to change this professor. There is no doubt about that.

The only thing that we can except in this case, is if the whole students class accord and complain about a bad teacher. But going individually in this battle will guarantee your loss and ruin your year’s studies.

Do teachers give bad grades for students correcting them

professors don’t like students to correct them a lot, this is so embarrassing for them. So it is recommendable for students to know when to correct and with who to correct.

But in general, this does not affect grades unless students fall with a bad professor or a teacher who is so sensitive and overtake things for granted. Correcting to a professor 2 to 3 times a week does not affect anything.

oppositely a lot of professors and teachers will see it from a positive side because it indicates to them the level of awareness that student has about a lecture.
