Schools - what do you think?

My partner works at a local school, kids run the school as teachers are scared to do anything. The kids smoke dope, take drugs, swear and generally do as they please. Last week a pupil took an aerosol can and matches to school and torched a pupils lunchbag, he was suspended for two days. The pupils will not ever get expelled unless someone is badly injured as the school have to pay to expell somebody.
I am disgusted at the general behaviour, not by all of them but quite a large number, teachers cannot search them as it is not allowed.
What do you think of the situation? Is this normal or am I the only one to feel really annoyed about this?

omg its all over-our school has an 'affluent' catchment area and they are as bad...the school is so big that its impossible imo to police it. I find out after weeks or months if a problem occurs...My older kids went to a school in a 'rough' area but smaller-and any problems and the teachers were on the phone to me!

No you're not alone, think the whole country would agree with you. Again PC rears it's stupid and ugly head. Teachers can't even smile at a pupil nowadays never mind punish them

I had the cane many times in school and it never psychologically scarred me but it did teach me to respect the teachers. Bring it back! :thumbsup:

I HATED SCHOOL

Best place I've ever been!

Early lessons make sense, easier on the pupils/parents and subsequent teachers.

PC gone mad! If you can't control school kids with an authority figure at school, what chance the police/ambulance service/firemen etc etc etc?

Parents are fined for having kids unwieldy at or missing from school but can't use corporal punishment and have to work it all out themselves! Their parents (and neighbours and friends and shopkeepers etc) would have just slapped them around the ear and they'd have accepted it!

(Didn't call my neighbours by their first names until I Was 18!!!!!)

Sorry Skusey, I guess I'm saying I agree!!! (But its not just schools)

cant really say incase i drop my partner in the plop, I get really fed up when she comes home and tells me what has happened on that day, some kid was stoned in class and being sick, they searched him and found cannibis in his sock, he was suspended for 2 days, I got suspended for smoking a fag-for 2 weeks.

it is crazy how schools have changed even since i was there!! and im only 23!! my little girl starts nursery in september but we live in a little village so hopefully no toddlers will be trying to get her into anything.

I do wonder what chance our kids have nowadays!

Problem is that those that do want to get on with their work and achieve are disrupted by these kids so even the most motivated child is disadvantaged.

Too much teacher energy going into controlling disruptive pupils leaving little time for actual teaching

Thats what I thought, I live in a small town so I thought drugs wouldn't be an issue, the pupils are taking ketimine on the playing field-don't know how its taken but it is a drug they give to horses, sounds horrendous. I hope your school isn't anything like ours:x

In my current secondary school ANY drug substance found on you (apart from fags) gets you expelled permanently.

Same at the school I work at - inner city, low expectations in the community etc. etc. definitely not an affluent area but standards/expectations are high. Smoking cigarettes gets you a fine (enforced) plus an exclusion if you don't put it out instantly.

How much do they have to pay and to who?

my daughter tells me there are many pupils in her year who go to school stoned or still half drunk and nothing is ever done, she is in year 9

I would like to think that's the extreme end of the schools but the reality is I don't know, I'm more familar with primary level as my Mum is a primary school teacher. While the infants are of course not as bad as above there is a high number of very problematic children and commonly the problem is that many of these children's parents do not back up the discipline in the school. Teachers are extremely limited in what they can do and if the child isn't being properly disciplined and punished at home for bad behaviour they know they can run riot in the classroom.

I do like the idea of being a secondary school teacher however there's no way I could handle the discipline nor the crazy amounts of paperwork required these days.
