PARENTS HAVE A ROLE TO PLAY
It is useless changing anything until the poor behaviour of students is dealt with.
Recent studies have shown that up to 40 per cent of high school students display poor behaviour in the classroom, do no homework or revision when set by the teacher, and have no pressure at home to comply. Most students have no focus or wish to even be in a classroom.
On the other hand, there is a stark difference in students with overseas backgrounds who cannot believe the wonderful opportunities that our free and safe education system offers.
Many of our dentists and doctors are from Asianspeaking backgrounds. So don’t blame the curriculum and the teachers for our country’s position. Blame the poor parenting, the hours spent on phones and games and the lack of any consequences for not doing the right thing.
