School Discipline

discipline teacherDisciplining students, particularly those with chronic or serious behavior problems, is a long-standing challenge for educators. We cannot deny there has been abuse in the past, but instead of dealing with those teachers who have misused their position of authority; the system of education has taken an overbalance reaction and in the name of Children’s right; it has taken all authority from teachers and even parents.

There are many factors that could be causing student misbehavior: family problems, insecurity, anxiety, teachers who are boring, unprepared and weak and an ever-increasing society with less limitations, boundaries and moral values. The word “No” is unpopular leaving children alone as victims of the tyranny of their own desires.

It is a hard topic to come to a consensus. The word “Discipline” for most people is synonym for spanking or some other form of corporal punishment. Biblical discipline is the counterpart of love (Proverbs 3:12; Hebrews 12:7).

“The kid who needs the most love will ask for it in the most unloving of ways” and a Christian School should be committed to a love that includes discipline; thathappy kid is a training that corrects, shapes, strengthens and completes the student for betterment and the glory of God.

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”
