Why do i get in trouble for questioning teachers?
Do i not have to the right to ask when something is unclear to me? or question when something feels wrong to me? or is it my place to speak when spoken to?
As long as the question is phrased respectfully, I believe someone always has the right to question or challenge their teacher, and a good teacher will gladly answer your questions. The teachers that get most upset at questions are generally those who don't really know or understand their own subject, or that just want to get through their lecture without interruptions so they can go home for the day. In either case, they're not the kind of teacher you can learn much from...you need to be able to understand what they're teaching, they certainly need to be able to understand it, and any teacher who does not actually love TEACHING has no business trying to do the job. If someone knows their subject, your question can't make them look silly or feel stupid, because they will know the answer (or not be afraid to say that they don't know, and be willing to find out for you). Most good teachers tend to appreciate questions because it shows you are genuinely interested in what they have to offer and you want to be certain you fully understand.
in my opinion, no matter how i ask it respectfully or disrespectfully theres still a question there to be answered. i always ask respectfully, so when they get mad, i have a sence of joy cause they know what their doing wrong
You have every right to do so. I got into fights with many of my teachers when I was studying for questioning what they were teaching. My opinion is that if you dont question things you have been told and you take them in without questioning then you are just plain ignorant.
So if I were you I would kept on questioning when something does not sound right.
you didnt give us enough info to make an informed answer - we have no idea what the context was.
I am a teacher, and my reactions might vary depending on the context, the question, and the means by which it is asked. Sometimes, if people keep asking repeated questions throughout class, it can become disruptive to the lesson plan and to other students, so the questions can best be handled outside of class time. If a student is questioning content or an opinion I have expressed, I often find that refreshing. But if it becomes clear that the student is just trying to show me up, my reaction might be different. You have to remember that you are one of many students, and the teacher is up on display in front of a bunch of people, not always having the time to deal immediately with each person's individual needs. If the answer to your question is something that will be primarily of benefit to you and not the class as a whole, it might be best to wait until after class. If it contributes to class discussion, then a good teacher will encourage your questions.
I don't think ur getting in trouble 4 the asking persay, but HOW u ask/attitude when asking. B careful how u word those questions.
I think that we as students have a right to an amazing education. If we as students ask questions that are productive, or we question what we are taught we should be congratulated, not shunned or disciplined.
Because you're not supposed to question authority. Also, if they don't know the answer, it makes them look stupid (they might think that, but actually admitting you don't know something makes you look smarter).

Anytime a Christian is asked a tough question, such as why there are natural disasters or genetic mutations that kill millions of people, they reply that God's ways are "higher" than our ways, and therefore we cannot even come close to understanding what sort of "justification"...

What qualities does a good teacher have?I greatly admire those who have this seemingly effortless way of teaching or imparting their knowledge in an interesting way, whether at school/uni or in the workplace. What qualities do you think these people have? And can it be emulated?

I was having an email debate with a U.S. Representative last night via emails back and forth. She's behind the opposition to a bipartisan bill that would ban shipping U.S. horses to Mexico and Canada to be butchered for food. I told her I didn't agree with eating companion animals/pets like...

Do You Ever Question Religion?A lot of churches and religions discourage questions (catholic churches being a primary offender of this actually) regarding god and religion. So have you ever questioned religion as a whole? Not just the existence of god but the existence of things like churches and...
