Why did YOU become a teacher?

It turns out, that one of the main reasons MOST people become teachers is to make a positive difference in the world - to help people learn.

So, given that, what's the problem?

Why do things so often go awry? Why do we seem to have so much trouble with our students now? Why do so many of our colleagues complain so much about how their students are unprepared, or lazy, or untrustworthy?

What do YOU think the problem(s) is(are)?
