Think School Pupils Are Rude And Unruly? You Should Meet The Parents

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1381376/Think-school-pupils-rude-unruly-You-meet-parents.html

.......

Take Amber, aged 13. She swaggers about the school as though she runs the place, which she pretty much does. Amber has an SEN (a special educational need). What this need is, apart from simply dreadful behaviour that is never challenged, isn’t clear.

However, with her SEN, she is given carte blanche to do whatever she wants.

When she saunters in to class late it doesn’t matter because the work she’s missed has been done for her by her teaching assistant, Mrs Kelly — whose task it is to assist Amber.

Mrs Kelly scurries from class to class, carrying Amber’s bag, so she doesn’t ‘lose’ it. She produces a pen for Amber because she, of course, won’t have one, and more often than not, it is Mrs Kelly who, under the guise of ‘helping’ Amber, does the work for her.

If she doesn’t, then Amber will throw things around the room, loudly text or chat on her mobile and try to fight her classmates. ‘You w*****,’ is her favourite expression for any child attempting the work I’ve set.

I did once manage to meet Amber’s mother. She looked bored during our conversation about her daughter’s behaviour: ‘She’s SEN so she can’t concentrate,’ Amber’s mum explained, before demanding angrily: ‘Why did you confiscate her mobile? That’s like stealing.’

Yes it's the Wail so no idea how accurate this is, but the article is at least worth an amusing read.

I quite like the idea of assistants doing the work, clearly this person is being prepped for being a top CEO or a City worker.

I wonder if the assistant will end up sitting the exams for this individual.

Surely to get a SEN you must have at least some sort of medically defined problem?

Edit to add this quote:

One in five secondary school pupils is now categorised as SEN

The result of paying slobs to breed like rabbits whilst taxing the productive out of existance - classes full of charming little girls like that one.

For the really disruptive ones like this, the best thing for everyone would be to pack them off to a boarding school of some kind, and do it early. Just getting them into a regular pattern of eating and sleeping can help a lot; you'll usually have a chaotic home life behind all this.

Might sound expensive, but obviously the parents would contribute any tax credits and child benefit, and you'd end up saving on a lifetime of dependency. And I'm saying this as a Guardian reader..

We must have gone to the same school. Kids who didn't know which end of the pencil to use sat next to able kids. Thicker kids playing up, bright kids getting bored, and eventually playing up, and teachers going nuts. Which brainiac thought that system up. Oh, streaming hurts kids feelings. Let's just bin their education instead, it's better than making anyone feel bad. :angry:

There are mixed ability classes that work in the Far East. Why? Because thick kids want to learn, parents support the teachers and don't put up with any shit and kids know if they don't perform at school in the short term they get a kicking from Dad and in the long term they could end up under a bridge. The down side is kids who have genuine problems are overlooked or not helped. I had one kid I am pretty sure had ADHD and he was just continually bollocked morning, noon and night by everyone. I am convinced he couldn't help it - there's no upside to dicking about in the Far East. Used to turn up with bruises regularly. I think there is too much stick out there, but here we have far too much carrot.

This is the first time I believe what I read in a Daily Mail story. :ph34r:

I spent a few years working in primary and secondary schools in Kent as support staff, and honestly I can say that I can relate to everything said in that story.

Appalling antisocial behaviour, no respect, insults, F-word in every other sentence, obscene gestures, constant shouting, fights, truanting, littering, watching pr0n during IT classes, xenophobia, graffiti or other degradation, threats, "soft" drugs, kids walking out of lessons, ... Check

ADHD as a one-size-fits-all excuse... Check

Violent chav parents opposing the mean teachers who have no right to force their little angels to do this and that. Check

Graduate teachers crying when they realise it's not the dream job they were expecting... Check :ph34r:

I remember one colleague who summed up the situation quite well: "We have duties, they have rights."

watching pr0n during IT classes,

On school PC's? Had the little dears figure out how to get around the firewall? Or where they just using there own phones, or flash drives?

Perhaps using pr0n in the lesson might have get them more interested in doing some work. If the male performers pencil increases in length by 45% when erect and is currently 5" flaccid, how big will it be when erect? On a 40" TV how much bigger will it look than reality and how will it make you feel compared to your own inadequate one?

[pedantic]Filter is the correct term, not firewall.[/pedantic]

It's very easy to avoid Internet filters, there are lots of websites that can help you do that. (Tip: search for "anonymous proxy").

The worst case I remember was a ~13 year old kid who had over 150 pr0n sites listed in his "favorites".

Once, he even accessed those sites from the teacher's computer, while in detention :blink: (The teacher had left the room for 5 minutes).

I assume you meant "pen1s".

Whilst in top sets for most subjects I was in a mixed ability class for English which meant that half the class were average but willing to work and the other half were wasters. Despite this I managed to get a B in GCSE language and C in literature. However I wonder how many others got dragged down by being mixed with the trash?

Was he trying to get the teacher sacked. Hey look what sirs been looking at in detention?

For some reason the filters here don't like anatomical terms.

When I wrote firewall I thought it's really filtering but stupidly thought no one would be pedantic enough to point that out. :P:lol:

People laugh and say these stories are ridiculous... but I see stuff like this all the time (or DID, when I was back at school). Perhaps I just live in a poor area, but it happens.

No, he was questioned later and admitted to doing it.

He was made to write an apology letter in which he explained that he couldn't control himself and felt possessed by some kind of "demon". :D:(

Another story:

A colleague in primary school did get false allegations made towards her.

A pupil accused her of watching pornography during class, and looking at websites that had swear words in them.

She was suspended for 3 weeks. An investigation was conducted, nothing incriminating was found.

Pro tip for unscrupulous parents / pupils:

If you don't like Mr/Mrs XYZ at school, contact the Headteacher and tell XYZ was watching pr0n during class.

There's no guarantee XYZ will be sacked, but at least you know you'll be harming them psychologically.

There is indeed a difference between rich and poor areas, but the general feeling is that standards have gone down everywhere.

Over the last ~30 years, countless reforms of the education system, and the rise of the PC brigade have made teachers gradually lose their status as authority figures, and the kids know it.

is this because it was kids who were taught in mixed ability classes and went to mickey mouse uni's who are now the new teachers?

god help us all when this generation pass through to become the teachers of the next. Kids will be lucky to count without taking their socks off.

I love these Daily Mail stories. The Mail's at one end of the argument and the Policy of allowing this is at the other and you just know the truth is somwhere between the two.

No-one forces you to work at a badly run school with horrid kids and take part in this insane mess, but it's because you do that it's possible to perpetuate the mayhem.

Just because it's kids who mete out the abuse doesn't make it any better -- no-one would put up with a fraction of that vile

behaviour in an office, and even in the private home, this would be viewed as a serious case of domestic violence.

Maybe it's time to ask why schools should be different here, and not meaning to be rude, but psychotic environments easily shift the perception of what is normal and cause people to behave irrationally, and I always find it amazing how many teachers complain bitterly about their lot, but at the same time defend the situation they are in and feel that they must do more to 'help'. It's very similiar behaviour to many other serial abuse victims.
