Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Teaching is harder than it was in the past.
理由一：现在教学很困难，因为家长的要求越来越多。不可否认，现在的家长希望自己的子女在各个方面的表现都能比同龄人更好，因此他们极其重视小孩的教育，这相应地增加了教学的压力。( + 具体事例)但是，过去家长让孩子上学最主要的目的就是希望他们考高分，然后毕业能找到好工作来养家糊口。换句话说，过去教学比较专注于成绩。Teaching is extremely difficult today, because parents are expecting for more. It’s undeniable that parents nowadays wish that their kids can have a better performance in all respects than their peers do. Hence, parents are paying lots of attention to their kids’ education, which increases the pressure of teaching accordingly.( + 具体事例) However, the major goal of those parents in the past is that their children can get a high grade in school and thus are able to support the family by landing a good job. In other words, teaching in old days only concentrated on kids’ academic performance.
理由二：现在教学很困难，因为现在的小孩不好管理。随着人口的急剧增长，很多国家都开始实施一些政策来控制人口数量。因此，独生子女家庭越来越多，而被宠坏的小孩也越来越多，这使得小孩在学校学习的时候越来越不受老师管束，甚至阻碍教学的进行。( + 具体事例)然而，过去家庭的小孩都比较多，父母不会特意地去专宠某一个;而且，过去艰难的生活条件也让孩子能更早地成熟和懂事。Teaching is significantly hard in contemporary society, since it’s not a simple task to manage children today. As the population increases greatly, many countries start enacting some policies to control the number of people. So, the family with only one child is expanding, and there are more and more spoiled kids, which makes it tough for teachers to supervise and to manage them in the school and even sets obstacles for teaching.( + 具体事例)But in the past, a family usually had several kids, and parents could not possibly dote on only one of them. What’s more, the poor living standard in old days would make children become mature and sensible earlier.
结尾段：虽然过去由于设备落后的原因，教学也不是那么方便、简单。但是，和“理由一”、“理由二”没法比。因此，我认为现在教学更困难。In the final analysis, we can’t deny that sometimes teaching might be hard in the past, due to the undeveloped facilities. However, when compared with these explanation and details I just provided to support my position, the opposite opinion looks particularly lackluster. Consequently, I’m still convinced that teaching is harder today than it was in the past, for parents now have more requirement and children are too spoiled.
