[quote=BERNADETTE;601919]No maybe you didn't advocate bad behaviour but you did imply that we were all "perfect pupils" which none of us profess to have been!!! It is the just the blatant way in which it was admitted that teachers were wound up just for the fun of it that got me and you seemed to be condoning that by your comment. Sorry mate but am damn sure that you can see that is wrong!!![/quote]

Yes of course that type of behaviour is wrong, but it's not the fault of Mr or Mrs Smith the shopkeeper

Not saying it is but judging by this thread the shopkeeper hasn't done herself any favours. But then again they say "any publicity is good publicity" so who knows??? Hope her sandwiches are damn good or it could just backfire on her and serve her right IMHO

Now it's blame the parents?
Its nothing to do with parents at all, I gaurentee 90% of you don't have any idea what your lad of 14-16 gets upto when he's out of sight, and I'm guessing he's as 'good as gold and would never do anything wrong' too?

But don't forget that the14-16 year old doesn't spring into being ... he is a product of 14 to 16 yrs parenting .... if he is a screw up at that age, he has had fourteen or sixteen years of training.

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

I was recently told of another pupil at Rhyddings who appears to be constantly late for school.

Again he was buying food, though much further away than the shop in the Observer.

When challenged he replied that it didn't matter if he was late, as his first 'lesson' was at the Fitness Bank gym.

If this is true then it's an outrage.

Why is the education authority paying for pupils to attend a private gym, when they have their own facilities, or could use council owned gyms, such as the one at Hyndburn Sports Centre?

Secondly why isn't lateness for any lesson being more strictly monitored?

I applaud the teacher who gave her pupils a rollicking in the shop.

I'd have wanted to boot their backsides all the way back to school, except the poor little lambs would have been probably straight on to ChildLine.

I would not patronise this butty shop after seeing this womans grinning mush in the paper.....she looks so smug. doesn't she realise that she is undermining the authority of the teacher?....and she is SO out of order. She also knows the children she is serving will be late for school....she has a child too. Maybe he/she will also grow up to thwart authority.
Hope her profits go down the gurgler.

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

Its 46 yeas since I left school and I still have respect for the people who taught me all those years ago. Its not that long ago that I had a letter printed in the Obs about respect for teachers and that even some 25 years after leaving school, when one of my old teachers came into the Stop and Rest Ossy how I still called him Sir. And to be fair the same teacher actually rang me up the week after, regarding that letter, that was mutual respect. Today kids and Teachers are on first name terms, which to me is a no no. Its time to return to old values, in as much that children had to earn repect, in my day, not told by some bleeding heart liberal that children must be respected

I'm sorry Margaret but I think this a bit harsh, it is not her fault that the pupils were in her shop. No she wasn't going to kick them out, why the hell should she?? She is trying to run a business at the end of the day.

Why did the teacher leave the school to go and tell the pupils off? If they dont want to get to school on time then tough! Its their own damn fault. The teacher should be back in school teaching the pupils that want to be there on time. People on this thread have been saying "Oh teachers have it hard enough as it is" well then make it easier for themselves and teach the eager and enthusiastic pupils.

I went to Rhyddings and I loved it. The teachers were great there, there was pupils that were late or didnt want to learn or be there, you're going to get that anywhere, always have and always will, but when I as there the teachers stayed in school and taught the ones that wanted teaching, i'm not saying they didnt try with them in class but the certainly wouldn't have gone running around Ossy looking for them.

As for the people who say "why are they in the butty shop, if the parents cant send them with a good enough breakfast" then I say to you that when I was at school I sometimes went to the butty shop before school. Why didnt my parents sort out a good enough breakfast?? Because I was 12 - 16 years old, 1) I could look after myself, I wasnt mollycoddled at that age and didnt want to be and 2) My parents worked bloody long shifts at work and most of the time didnt have the time to run after me in the morning, as they were going to work to earn money as Stacey in the butty shop is!!

When I lived in London I was also in a quiz team with their granddaughter, a doctor, who is a fine a young woman as her grandmother.

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

Can't see how these kids can expect to be shown any respect when they show a clear disregard to the school rules. They know that they should be in school for 8.40 but decide to go and buy a butty. It is a clear case of "I will do as I please". The telling off will have gone completely over their heads because they just don't care!!!!
