David Wooding News of the World.
Teachers will be given new power to search pupils’ mobiles for porn or slap ping videos under a massive behaviour crackdown to be launched this week. Kids will be banned from taking phones into lessons and those caught using one will texts, photos and videos checked and even erased by staff. Education Secretary Michael Gove ordered the action in a bid to combat the use of mobiles as offensive weapons
in the classroom and the source of cyber bullying. Guidelines will include:- Retrain, Detain, Punish, Expel , in September all school will beable to force pupils to hand in their mobiles at the beginning of the school day.
Margaret Morrissey Parentsoutloud said, “Mums and Dads will get behind the Government’s school discipline blitz. It is about time teachers were allowed to take control of their classroom again. This makes it clear to teachers, parents and pupils where they stand and the consequences for those who misbehave. Three out of four parents will be 100 per cent behind it. There are always some who could not careless. Mobiles have become not only a major distraction but a tool of bullies. I agree with children having phones to tell parents if they are going to be late. But they don’t need them in school hours. A lot of the new guidance makes sense. This includes not giving notice of detention and also allowing teachers to have contact with pupils, if my 7 year old falls in the playground I want a teacher to be able to comfort him/her. your view [email protected]

    Oh fantastic, lets bring in more discipline for the class rooms! At the end of the day, teachers are there to teach and to endorse behaviour and manners that should be taught at home and carried through to school. I’m all for this decision, what’s next on the Agenda?
