Your recently published article on "Red-Pen" teachers would have been better titled “Teachers! Don’t teach." Teachers should not believe that their role is about being liked by students, encouraging learners to answer correctly by following their feelings, and that the pillars of education rest on stickers and lollipops. This is not a formula for quality education nor how to implement it. Sorry, but not everyone deserves stickers and lollipops. We need to encourage the learners in the classroom who are so often held back by mediocre standards.
