Next to one’s biological parents, teachers are considered the people who are the second mother or father of a child. Because of that general notion, most parents leave their responsibility of discipline to their kids’ teachers, whether realized or not. Teachers are complaining not because of the low academic reception of many students but because of the moral decline of these students which usually lead them to academic decline as well.
I say parents should be the first teacher especially during the formative years of the child which is from age 2-7. Not only should the child be taught all sorts of tricks but all the more the moral lessons that will shape the child’s future. It will not only be good at home but also while the child is in class. It will give the child more attention to what the teacher is academically teaching. Being poor is no reason not to teach kids moral lessons but sad to say those bad habits show in school! I know because I see them. I talk to my kids’ teachers and they seem to have all the same problem with their students which, if not given attention right away will go on and on until the child reaches the age of beyond repair.
Should that stop the teachers from improving themselves? No! Teachers usually encounter a specific student only for a maximum of 1 school year for primary students and just a semester for trimester students so why should those students be the reason of the teachers’ further development?
