discipline in singapore schools, horror stories from singapore schools

A teacher friend related to me an incident in his school that exemplifies this breakdown of school discipline and respect for teachers in Singapore schools. A secondary school student slapped a teacher, and was caned in the classroom. No suspension, nothing.

What if a teacher were to slap a student? I guarantee you all hell will break loose.

Another friend related how he accidently hit a student. The class was lining up outside the classroom and he was gesturing to them to behave and in the process his hand brushed against a student’s head. The parents complained, and a big investigation involving the school superintendent ensued, a drama befitting a US Senate hearing!

It’s time the authorities launched a RESPECT TEACHERS campaign as in the EPL (English Premier League)
