One correspondent writes: "The good thing was the kids used to sniff the new Banda copies ... and slump quietly to the desk. Perhaps the demise of the Banda has been responsible for the collapse of discipline. Should we re-introduce ... Banda, in much the same way the CIA are alleged to have introduced drugs to LA, in order to quieten the masses?" Another says:
"With new technologies come new expectations. New expectations mean more work. I suspect that a return to the Banda philosophy would be a return to a more human, less intense, more balanced and happier life for teachers."
Free the Banda!
