TEACH­ERS PRO­TEC­TION BILL

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

CAMILE D. TOBIAS

Teach­ers have a very im­por­tant re­spon­si­bil­ity in shap­ing the lives of their stu­dents. In some in­stances teach­ers some­times en­counter some un­to­ward in­ci­dents in their teach­ing ca­reers in terms of dis­ci­plin­ing their stu­dents, and the lack of in­sti­tu­tional sup­port from the institution. Be­cause of these rea­sons stu­dents nowa­days lacks dis­ci­pline. While the Child Pro­tec­tion Pol­icy aims to pro­tect chil­dren from child abuse, the law also be­came a bur­den for teach­ers in in­still­ing dis­ci­pline to them.

The Teacher Pro­tec­tion Bill will help teach­ers and the institution to have a bet­ter work­place. With the help of this bill teach­ers can dis­ci­pline stu­dents with­out abus­ing them, of course, and with­out be­ing in­tim­i­dated of the Child Pro­tec­tion Pol­icy. This Bill will also help schools to be more or­ga­nized by hav­ing a stu­dent man­ual or code of dis­ci­pline for stu­dents to fol­low and sup­port per­son­nel to at­tain a bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment in­side the school. Train­ing and professional devel­op­ment for teach­ers and per­son­nel about dis­ci­pline of stu­dents and about this bill is a great idea to re­fresh the way of class­room man­age­ment and dis­ci­pline for stu­dents.
