Discipline in schools
Our schools in America have many problems. Shootings, drugs and gang violence, are just a few of the problems facing students, teachers, parents and administrators in schools across the nation. Rules and discipline are important to solving these very serious problems facing the nation’s schools. The parents of students need to start taking responsibility for their actions, as well as those of their children.
In this society we, as a group, have a problem with admitting our mistakes, and tend to blame others for our problems. So, in this new environment that has been created, the nation’s schools have been made responsible for the discipline of students instead of the parents. Teachers and administrators spend too much time taking care of the few students who tend to cause the majority of the problems, while the rest get left with a sub-standard learning experience.
Schools do not and should not have the primary responsibility in the overall discipline of students. Learning institutions should be focusing on educating the youth of the nation, and reinforcing the rules and disciplinary p
ractices laid down by the parents of the student. Blame for the developing disciplinary problems in schools should be placed squarely on the parents, who need to take a more active role in the lives of their children.
