Rules en­sure teach­ers have rights too

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

THERE will be some mid­dle class hack­les raised at the pub­li­ca­tion of King James’ School’s 40 rules.

But, let’s face it, this is sim­ply a list of the chal­leng­ing and dis­re­spect­ful be­hav­iour aimed at teach­ers day in, day out, even in schools with a good rep­u­ta­tion, such as King James’ ( I know - I have taught there! ).

Mor­gan Burton’s com­ments on the ef­fect of this rule book on ba­sic hu­man rights seems to ig­nore any idea that teach­ers may have the right to do their job with­out hav­ing their young charges con­stantly try­ing to push the bound­aries of de­cent be­hav­iour.

Has this for­mer stu­dent per­haps for­got­ten the re­la­tion­ship be­tween rights and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties?

Any par­ent op­posed to this rule book will only ap­pear to be sanc­tion­ing their lit­tle dar­ling’s be­hav­iour. Keep up the good work, KJS, and re­mem­ber who is boss.
