The article discusses how teachers play a role in contributing to mental hazards of students. Teachers usually fail to treat students as individual persons and thus they compare students with one another. These comparisons establish mental conflicts in many children who are unable to perform at the accepted rate or with the accepted degree of accuracy. There are still many teachers who create timidities and inhibitions amongst their children. Teachers make use of negative controls to maintain discipline among students. But these negative controls can affect a student's positive personality traits. The schoolroom life is monotonous and this affects the personality of a teacher. The traits and attitudes of her personality may be unattractive to her students who are eager and forward-looking. Teachers often become bias toward few students. Teachers should take care that he/she should be impartial to every student.
