Good post!
Most of the kids are angels at home but they are mischievious imps in school. When some of the kids are disciplined in school, the dear ones twist the story and protest their innocence to their parents ... saying that their teacher hates them etc. Their parents then come to school in battle fatiques and fight with the teachers.
Any wonder that teachers turn a blind eye to their students' misdemeanours? And we complain that the teachers are not doing their jobs!
If you've got to hit a kid to get them to behave then you must have absolutely no brains or imagination. Kids with anti-social problems at school developed those problems at home with ma and pa.

Very true! Kids will be kids and they will do anything to see how far they can push (to both their teachers and parents). I dont envy being a teacher, they have to deal with both parents and children. The government should butt out!
