Letters extra: Disruptive pupils

30th March 2001 at 01:00

This morning I received confirmation that I have been accepted on an MSc in information systems starting in September. Thus drawing a close to my career after a grand total of two years. I've told people all the reasons they want to hear, from pay to conditions and paperwork.

The sad truth is that it breaks my heart to go to class after class and have a 5 per cent unshiftable, unmoveable minority prevent the majority of the kids get the education they deserve.

Yes, disruptive children need an education, but does it have to be at the expense of the others?
