As a teacher, finding enough time during the day to teach everybody can be challenging, particularly when it comes to giving everybody precisely what they need in order to succeed. Some students can also be more interested in learning about the subject matter than others, which is where an after-school program can become useful. They give teachers the opportunity to extrapolate further on what was discussed in class, so that the more engaged students can begin to further their expertise above and beyond what the standard lesson period allows.
Most educational bodies permit a fair amount of wiggle room for teachers to set up such a program, as they’ve proven to be immensely helpful in improving results. They not only allow teachers to have a more one-on-one interaction with their students but also allows students to excel in a system where they don’t have much opportunity to do so.
