“Improving discipline at school is a big priority”
Many people believe that more attention should be paid to discipline at school nowadays. Others think
that strict discipline makes pupils act as robots.
There is no doubt that teachers cannot teach effectively if there is no order at school and pupils cannot learn If schools fail to keep order. There is a problem of tackling basic gaps in the children`s behavior, such as respect for teachers and classmates, keeping order in classes and some others. Pupils are often impatient and they cannot accept any sort of criticism. What is more, some pupils make false statements about teachers. Some parents are sure that teachers should be given the right to remove pupils who cause difficulties.
Other parents are sure that strict discipline does not always help to develop pupils` self- respect, they believe that pupils should be given more freedom in relationship with teachers. They think pupils should be involved in decisions about their school and have a say in how things are run.
To my my mind, there should be an adviser on pupil behavior in every school.
Finally, I should say that measures, some teachers call them“very basic ”, should be taken to improve
discipline at school. Teachers should be allowed to press criminal charges against pupils. (204)
