Rules ensure teachers have rights too
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.
