How will you feel if the peace is shattered in school?

As we know school is supposed to be a place where one acquires knowledge and learns to live within the rules of society. But sometimes the teacher crosses the boundaries. The result is children are getting punished for not doing home work, scolded for sharing a giggle during the lesson and sometimes they are going to home with tears on teacher’s nasty behavior. Corporal punishments like, being slapped, hit, pinched, pushed, punished with long hours of standing, kneeling etc are banned in some states (banned in Orissa). Supreme Court of India agrees that this corporal punishment is not right. The school is supposed to be the safest place after home. If it becomes a dangerous place, can you think of it? ------------ A few examples.. [i]In April 2009, 11 year-old Shanno studying in a Municipal Corporation School in Delhi succumbed to injuries after her teacher made her crouch in the searing summer sun for two hours. This was punishment for failing to recite the full English alphabet. In March 2009, an act of violence reported from another municipal school in Delhi. Here the teacher’s fit of violence had injured as many as ten children, from Std III, all of whom had to be taken to hospital. Rohit Kumar Sakpal (8years old) of Sangli, Maharashtra, died when his headmaster beat him. Jeet Ram, (Std. VI) from Shimla, had left his Math and English book at home. He was beaten to death by his teacher. [/i] What do you think of these horrible incidents. I just pointed out few.. and I have 100% disappointments towards these when teachers turn like monsters towards students. Some serious action should be taken by Government.

Hi raghul, to me, school is still the right place for students to acquire knowledge as well as other necessary skills. It won’t turn to be a dreadful hell if the school is well managed. We couldn’t deny that they might be a few nasty behavior teachers among the good, caring and professional. Hopefully the authority concerned will take appropriate measure to ban the qualification of those so-called “teachers” or to retrain them again until they could control their bad temper as well as their dreadful violent behaviors. Teachers that could control the class with strong arm, through all kinks of scary corporal punishments are not qualified to act as responsibility teachers Classroom is not a battlefield and corporal punishments are not allowed for sure. It’ really a great sarcasm as well to place such violent persons to guide the innocent kids! The inappropriate behavior of the “teachers” in the class might cause serious and undesirable effect to the young generation in their growth process. I’m afraid that kids might grow up to be violent persons too if having long term exposure with such disgusting “teachers” For the sake of our new generations the education should take appropriate steps to enroll new students into teacher training colleges. Of course the party concerned has to make sure whether the person is qualified to be a patient, caring and responsible teacher that without any tendency for violence. Have a nice day and happy posting

Hi dear, It is sad to know that the innocent kids are facing the cruel attitude of teachers. Teachers supposed to be the most respected person in the mind of students and when they are turned like criminals the kids are helpless. I know most of teachers are good but if one among them act badly it will spoil the reputation of the whole. I think the teachers need counseling when she is not able to handle her angry, I agree all are human beings and anger can spoils one’s reputation. But in the case of teachers they are dealing with children and that children supposed to be the promise of our nation. Let us hope the teachers will do their best to control their anger and school will remain the safest place for them.

[b]People such as you describe have NO business calling themselves "teachers." I recently did a related discussion. If you go to my profile & find it, I think you'll find a lot of people who feel the same way. Maggiepie "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?"[/b]

These incidents are deplorable and unexceptable. No teacher has the right to endanger a child for any reason! It is not teaching. It is violence perpetrated on a child. Corporal punishment is not even humane. Children are there to learn not be subjected such abuse! It is just deplorable and should not be stood for!

hi raghul i believe that teachers have to be strict and punish children .. as i see children are becoming more naughty and they are more mischevious .. BUT .. there must be a limit in the teachers acts and must be systematically followed .. the education system must draw out regulations on sentences or punishment that can be carried out by the teachers and this must be duly discussed with parents prior to enroling their children in school As school is the first place our young generation is exposed to outer rulers and regulations cheers

Hello Raghul, yes you are correct. This is just because teachers nowadays consider it only as ajob. People unfit and who do not have the aptitude become teachers. Those who have merit and whose ambition is to become teacher do not get the opportunity. But people with least of the least qualifications become teachers just because they have the certificate issued by a municipality or a tashildar about their birth. They do not seem to know what is a teacher supposed to be. Only our system changes, these things will be minimised.

the mismanagement of the current system is taking its toll. merit is no longer a consideration. here, who will get the job depends on how deep your pockets are or which community you belong to. today many qualified and talented people go unemployed while undeserving candidates get the job. the consequences are for everyone to see. teachers cannot teach, doctors cannot cure and architects cannot build. we are in for bad times...

Yes i agree with you now a days schools are no longer safer places for childern. School is something students gain knowledge. The case happned in April 2009 shere shanno succumbed to injuries for not reciting full English alphabet. This is terrible, teachers should not harrse students like this. Teachers now have become very harsh on childern. I think these type of teachers should be dismissed from teaching profession.
