The other evening I posed a question to my 12 yr old daughter. I asked her what she would do if she was in charge of her school and was tasked to make a change to pupils lives.
Her response was interesting to say the least.
She said she would firstly hand out the school rules to the kids (& formulate the rules if they didn't exist). She would make sure the kids were familiar with the rules together with the punishment for trangressions. She would then get the team of teachers to strictly enforce them. She went on to cite the case of her cousin who attends an "ex white" girls high school in Durban. There discpline is strict and the school runs smoothly.
Coming from my daughter, who like most teens are the "anti-rule" type, this was real food for thought.
Now this is not rocket science, but are we as schools making the pupils aware of the rules and are strict in enforcing them?
