    If a pupil modifies their behaviour past indiscretions are forgotten. A pupil out of class may be fine. Some teachers out of class however...

    There is no place in the teaching profession for such people.

    Yes, you wonder why they go to school if they hate it so much . . .

    Generally, I like kids, but I have had maybe five pupils I've really disliked over a 35 yr period. All boys, all violent and all finished up in trouble with the law. Yes, they were all given as much help as their schools could muster.

    In each case, I was quite forgiving until they did actual serious harm to another human being. In each case, I'd have to say that the kid was a sociopath.
