Allow teachers to be ‘physical’

Comment 12th February 2015

Power needs to be returned to teachers. Teachers need to be allowed to restore discipline, defend themselves and physically move kids who need to be moved (ie removed from class or in a fight). This is not a return to capital punishment, just – dare I sound like a Daily Mail reader? – common sense.

Why does this matter?

Our culture of teachers having to pussy foot around rampaging, disrespectul children is ridiculous – it leaves them vulnerable and the kids take advantage of the situation. In the long-run it has been hugely detrimental to the overall discipline in schools and to the amount of respect pupils have for teachers.
