The Government wants teachers to be allowed to use "reasonable force" in school. What an indictment of the way we teach young people!
If pupils were allowed to learn what they wished, "force" would become unnecessary. External discipline is only applied because teachers impose learning on minds that have no desire for it.A potential car mechanic wants to know about cars, not the French Revolution.
All this talk of "force" is retrograde. A new approach is so badly needed - one which accommodates pupils` aspirations.
