Hi there,
I’m struggling with this sentence:
A well designed syllabus might help a teacher who wants to ensure that all students perform to their maximum potential, and addresses students’ demands/addresses meeting with students’ demands, accordingly organising work throughout a school year.
Which option is better? How to correct this sentence?
Have a nice Sunday and thanks in advance

    I would suggest using students' needs rather than students' demands. Students' demands sounds somewhat hostile to me, but it might be the world and time in which I grew up....

    I agree, "addresses/meets students' needs" is better.
    "meeting students' demands" makes it sound like a hostage negotiation.
