Parents responsible for kid’s bad behaviour: SurveyApril 24th, 2011 - 2:40 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 24 (ANI): A child’s bad or erratic behaviour in the classroomcan be attributed to his or her parents a study has found.
A survey of over8,000 members by the NASUWT Teachers Union found that more than two in three teachers identified poorback-up from parents as the most commonfactor for studentmisbehavior.
The negative influences of television and media were also blamed by teachers.
“Parents can’t simply abandon their responsibilities at the school gate,” BBC quoted NASUWT leader, Chris Keates, as saying.
“Teachers are not receiving the support they need from parents, school leaders or government to assist them in maintaining high standards of pupil behaviour,” Keates added. (ANI)
