Re: Don't bug me teacher, eating me breakfast.

I think most people are making this comment because it is obvious that you haven't a very mature attitude....and No we all aren't perfect, but at least we went to school and learned what the teachers had to say...and most of us have had interesting and productive lives. It sounds like you still have much learning to do.

Then that comes down to the discipline of the school and the sanctions it delivers for pupils not following the schools rules of conduct.

My sympathies are with the teacher on this one. It's not a job I could do these days.

Which is probably why the teacher marched into the butty shop and told the pupils they should be in school...even though they probably are all aware of the starting time for school.

I am sure us older ones here were taught by staff we could understand.
And your point is ???

Don't know about Rhyddings but do know that at Hollins if you aren't in school on time you get detention. Having said that wouldn't mind betting that a lot of kids just wouldn't turn up for detention!!!

Re: Don't bug me teacher, eating me breakfast.

Well done Rhyddings, it's reassuring to know that the attitude of not our problem as it's outside the school gates didn't occur. The shop owner has come out of this with absolutely no credit

Indeed ... the closest thing I can remember to a teacher having trouble with English was R. P. Owen, and he was Welsh ... You can say what you like about the staff at the old Accy Grammar, but most of them knew their stuff and they were concerned that we got an education. Sam Wignall might have gone a little overboard on the discipline, but he was a helluva fine history teacher and rugby coach.

And that type of comment doesn't help either Bonnyboy .. you should know better ...

Still sticking to my original comments ... those kids should not have been there and should have been in school .. the parents should not endorse this behaviour .. the Proprietor should have known better ... the Observer should not have printed this story, how did they know about it anyway (mmmmm )... well done to the teacher ...

Come on, cough up perfectionists..
Nobody is trying to say they are perfect but i think a lot of us had and still do have a more mature attitude and showed respect to our teachers because they were in a position of authority even if i didn't like a teacher i would never be rude to them.

Re: Don't bug me teacher, eating me breakfast.

I just don’t see why blame should be levelled at a shopkeeper plying their trade.

If parents cannot be bothered to make proper provision that their child arrives at the school at the appointed time is that the shopkeepers fault.

If the teaching staff cannot come up with a curriculum that the children find exciting and challenging or put forth effective disciplinary measures is that the shopkeepers fault too.

Kids should want and enjoy going to school.

Sorry BB thought I new you better than that, don't think anybody is professing to be perfect. But to blantantly say you wound teachers up because it was fun shows a complete lack of respect. They have a hard enough job as it is

The curriculum isn't down to the teachers.

Neither is discipline. Their hands are tied.
