    Title: once children start school, teachers have more influence than parents on their intellectual and social development. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

    Several teachers were influencing students in their quest for knowledge during a summer exchange program.

    Schools are important places for education and teachers are a vital part. In my view, teachers can help develop students’ intellectuality and promote social development.

    Teachers select decide indoor and outdoor activities, which is beneficial to students’ intelligence and social development. Since teachers have undergone specialized training and they are familiar with education. They will design relevant activities such as learning games and field research for their students. Encouraging students to think actively to find some useful answers for society is the main function of school activities. In contrast, parents who lack in-depth knowledge of curriculum content may not be able to help their children.

    On the other hand, students can develop their own academic understanding and society would be able to make progress because teachers provide students with guidelines and rules. Teaching methods can change children’s views toward different things like learning habits and communication skills. The right attitude helps students to study and applying the knowledge gained from learning boosts social development.

    However, parents can discipline and interact with their children when children stay at home. Parents are more willing to help their children to develop good learning habits and social manners. Therefore, a student may perform well at school and become a responsible citizen. In the long term, society will be increasingly helpful for their development/maturity/adulthood.

    In conclusion, although parents are their first teachers, children will spend substantial time with teachers once enrolled in schools. Therefore, I believe that teachers are more essential to students than their parents.
