Saturday Star - - METRO - Leader of the Boer Repub­li­can Party

I HAVE to com­mend Vi­jay Su­ra­j­pal on his ex­cel­lent let­ter in last week’s Satur­day Star.

I was a school sec­re­tary at a high school for boys for 30 years and can as­sure you that the boys 30 years ago had the ut­most re­spect for teach­ers, and in fact for any adult.

What has gone so ter­ri­bly wrong? Lack of dis­ci­pline al­lowed at the school, dis­ci­pline in the home, etc.

I know from my ex­pe­ri­ence that it is so hard to be a teacher of learn­ers who have re­spect – it is re­ally dif­fi­cult to do their jobs ef­fi­ciently with learn­ers who are not dis­ci­plined or have no re­spect.
