Bad Teachers

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by sniffybear, Feb 10, 2012.

  1. I have been a teacher now for 15 years and it amazes me just how many teachers blame the kids for behaviour issues.
    Is it not time to just simply admit that if there are behaviour problems it 99% of the time is becasue of the teacher

  3. I was interesed in the view that teaching is hard.
    I understand that but is that a reason for not being able to control basic lessons.
    Come on if we don't take responsability for our classes who will.

    What does this mean? What is a basic lesson compared with any other sort of lesson?

    I'm perfectly willing to take responsibility for my lessons, if, when I apply sanctions for poor behaviour, these are backed up by management and parents.

    What I am not willing to take responsibility for is poor behaviour from children who then refuse to co-operate with sanctions and are backed up by their parents and management are too worried about complaints to put their foot down, resulting in undermined and disempowered staff. This is not 99% my fault.

    Why can't children be held responsible for their own behaviour?

    Re the OP-I've searched the site and found a very similar post from her/him from a few years ago, both posts suggest trolling.

    Sniffy, you are not a teacher. At least, I hope you are not because your spelling, grammar and punctuation are appalling!
