You have not made a convincing argument that students don't fear math simply because they are just not good at it. Actually, come to think of it, you haven't made any argument at all. You just say that teachers make students hate math. I guess they also make students hate music and a dozen other things that they are, coincidently, not good at. Where is your evidence that teachers make kids hate math? The correlation between kids hating math and kids not being good at math is enormous, but where is there any evidence of teachers making kids hate math en masse?
