My view…
I could agree and or disagree with this statement. It depends on the teacher, student and information being taught. Teachers have a different teaching style, just like students have a different learning style. I think as a teacher you have to be aware of the different learning styles to be able to educate your student to the fullest. I do believe students also have to be open to learning even information that might be hard t understand or they may find dry in content.
For the assignment I will disagree that “Teachers don’t fail students; students fail themselves.” Since I have more experience as a student, I feel I can support my position from my experience and feedback I have received as a student.

These questions can be approached from both sides of the coin. It all depends on many factors including the type of teacher (personalities are different), the student who is the receiver of information as well as …

My position however is that teachers don’t fail students but rather students fail themselves. Through my experience as a student, I have witnessed more often than not the mistakes students make, even after a teacher has done all that is possible to make the students pass. Even though teachers may have a different teaching style and influence on the learners performance, it is the input and the zeal the student puts in that can make a difference in the learning curve. It is also true that the teacher contributes less than 50% of what is necessary for a student to pass and the student himself contributes more than 50% of success (William, 2016). The contribution of the student therefore can be a big factor for the success or failure. Since there is a very big shift from teaching to learning, it goes without saying that the student has a very big learning role bigger than the teaching role the teacher had. Parents and the environment are also factors that determine the success of a student. Such factors are beyond…
