well, school student discipline is indeed going down the drain. most times, some parents are highly responsible in encouraging indiscipline in schools. scenario one : parent comes 2 school n demanded why the school has confiscated his son's unconventional school bag which was already announced to the students n given ample warning on the action to be taken by school if students persist in using those types of bags. the father said that by taking away his son's bag, he (his son) cannot study! The irony is that if he were to really check what was in his son's bag, he would have noticed that all his son had taken to school was just a packet of tissues!!! scenario two : school discipline teacher scolded a student for not respecting the teacher teaching in front of the class, student answered that his father is very rich, why should he bother? he went on to taunt the teacher when the discipline teacher challenged him to repeat what he had said. he retorted that the teacher must be deaf for not hearing what he had said!!! scenario three : teacher noticed a student missing in the class and told his friends in the class that if he didn't return to class soon, she'd report him to the police. the next day, mother comes, questioned the teacher why she had threatened to report his son to the police!!!! for discipline to be effective in schools, parents should be understanding and give their full support to actions taken by the school authorities.
