Teachers doing the Spoon-feeding

If the teachers doing the children’s thinking forĀ  them (spoon-feeding), the students will simply digest the information provided without understanding in a spoon-feeding environment. This leads to stagnancy in education because no development is made as the student’s brain processes the data
