Student teachers as "victims"

Merrick I took over a piece of "hot potato" January 10 is an excellent clarinetist, outrageous allegations now, she said, had a very negative impact on the cause of music education faculty as well as the country as a whole . "We should take this opportunity to reflect on whether it should continue, the world year after year, one-to-one teaching mode?" And Merrick emphasis on one-to-one teaching has always been considered as music home of the only way. "

Today and college students "panic," there are many teachers, Merrick told reporters, "I heard a lot of male teacher complained to me: 'I do not know where to start teaching students, I also so teacher taught, but to touch students.
