I'm not going to deny that some teachers are arses, especially when it comes to disciplinary but when it comes to the academic side of things, some of the actions are justified:

1: You're expected to at least know how the word is roughly spelt. Problem is that you're all too reliant on your precious googles and MS word.
2: books cover the syllabus for the exam. Books are often new and you'd have to go to a pretty **** school to use out-dated books
3: class attendance is mandatory by the law. Even in university, you have to at least attend 80% of your lectures. 90% of telling personal stories is way too exaggeration and even if they do on a seldom basis, it's just a nice way to take a slight break.
4: You're not expected to sweep up or dust wipe the whole room but come on, don't be ridiculously messy like stick gum under the table or litter. That's like saying it's perfectly okay to litter on the street because it's the street cleaner's job.
5: in maths especially, the most important bit is not the final answer but it's how you showed your working out and your demonstration of understanding.
6: There's only so much a teacher can cover in so little time. You've clearly never tried lesson planning before.
7: That's obviously ********.
8: For coursework especially, that sort of **** is also marked by the government and examining board. I can't stress how deadlines are very very important, especially in the real working world and you kids don't take it seriously! There's no real deadline in marking papers.
9: In the final exam, the essay quality is no where near to be expected as good as that of coursework. In coursework, you carefully have to bide your time into research and write as if you've not rushed it.
10: It's always good to know the hard way of things, especially for future reference. It's not like they expect you to do the hard way everytime.
11: I don't know how often this happens but teachers can make mistakes too.
12: refer back to 6.

Number 3. is definitely true in my experience, I don't know what it is but I always end up getting the old man teacher who spends most of the time talking about his own life, mind you some of them are entertaining and usually do pertain to what we're studying....But not always. I came into class more than a few times where he'd start off by telling us a 30 minute story about something like going to a famous nightclub when he was younger

as for number 3 I know a ton of people that only go to class at universities on test day cuz it's not mandatory by law for them to be there an the professors but, all the notes on there websites.

Number 7 I've seen that happen quite a few time that ever answer was technically right but, we didn't have to pick the most right one the professor made a mistake an everyone got that answer right.

As for 11 I see that happen so much like my biology class I took every test we had to fix like 4 or 5 questions before starting
