Pupil behaviour plans backed by States

Post by GD on Fri 09 Mar 2012, 8:46 pm

Guernsey's government has backed plans to work harder to improve pupil behaviour and reduce exclusions from schools.

Politicians spent nearly three hours debating a major report from the Scrutiny Committee which has spent months looking into the issue.

It was one which sparked a series of emotional and passionate speeches, from those urging more support for teachers to those saying the responsibility for children should rest with parents.

Deputy Jenny Tasker branded exclusions from school as "an exclusion from society."

Deputy Sam Maindonald flagged up her concern that not enough was being done to tackle pupils who were violent with each other at school.

Deputy Dave Jones said: "I blame parents. Society is too liberal and wooly and we should bring back corporal punishment."

But Deputy Leon Gallienne called that comment "a disgrace".

In the end the report was voted through leaving the Education Department to go away and consider the many recommendations for improvement and report back later this year.

That said, Education minister Deputy Robert Sillars pointed out that a number of the recommendations were already being tackled.

i also think dave jones was out of order
i have a grandson with problem .if my daughter thought a good smack would have sorted him out she would have done this years ago
he under punishment for all he does
does not go out and play with other kids cos they would tell him to do d
something and he would
I listened to the debate and was also included in it as i went to the committee and said my bit
i only hope help is at hand as i know many parents cry themselves to sleep at night with disrepair .

Yes it is a recognised problem but many from the old school will tell you they dont believe this is a medical problem it is just being naughty
he will also tell you he hates the way his brain works and cry s cos he has no friends to play with .it is a very sad affair for some of these children
