Letter: Substitutes unprepared to teach

Published:

 

I am not happy with all the substitutes teachers at my school. There are so many substitutes that I hardly see my actual teacher, and when the substitutes come in, they do nothing. They only play games. I would rather learn than do that.

When they do give you a worksheet and, if you need help, they have no idea how to do it, so we have to wait for the next day for my teacher to return. And another thing is that the students switch seats every time there is a substitute. It is a big waste of time, so why bother going to school?
