Gove Punishes Parents

Education secretary Michael Gove has announced that he will be imposing punishments for parents whose children fail to show their teachers the proper level of respect. The Minister insists that mums and dads must take the necessary responsibility for their child’s behaviour in regards to respect towards teachers, the willingness to learn and even turning up to school.

scoldIt is Mr Gove’s belief that parents who believe it should be the job of the teachers to educate and raise their children, without installing a sense of respect for their teachers in children, will find themselves on a self-destructive path of stubborn children who are unwilling to learn.

While it is important to ensure that children attend school and express a willingness to learn, perhaps penalising the parents is not the best way to go about this. Some suggest that time spent penalising parents for making sure their kids turn up at school could be better spent having personal 1 to 1 sessions with the children themselves, to learn how they view school and how to better their experience of school as a whole. It is the case of the carrot and the stick so to speak.
