    Hell no. Some teachers are pricks. I don't want to give them more Prick Power.
    More kids are pricks then teachers, and if you are not being a **** in the class, what is there to worry about?
    Plus with this "no touch" policy it means the teachers are powerless against kids as they can not remove them from the class. To remove this policy is a step in the right direction.

    I cba to read the whole thread, and I'm sure someone else has already pointed it out, but teachers are already allowed to restrain pupils, pretty much using any means necessary, if they are going to hurt themselves or others. The "no touch" thing is complete nonsense.

    The fact that Michael Gove appears not to know this makes me question why he's doing this job even more

    The searching part is wrong and should not be allowed.

    Being able to keep the little pricks in line with force is a very good thing though, but i doubt it allows much.
    I agree with this. It probably isn't in the teacher's best interest to search the child anyway as it could lead to all sorts of accusations. They should be able to restrain them though. So many times have I heard the 'you touch me and..' in my lessons where people give the teacher attitude for no good reason.

    I completely agree.

    The problem at the moment is that kids don't see adults as authority. Probably stems from home but not always.
    exactly! and of course the government addressing the problem is going to make all the kids unhappy, but at the end of the day it'll mean better education because the kids will respect the adults more!

    I think it's too little too late. Look at the attitudes on display in this thread already, kids have no respect and this isn't going to change anything.
    We do have respect.
    We also have rights.

    Well done Gove. I think we should also look at bringing back the cane....and hanging. Not just for murderers, but for unruly school children too. Of course, as the compassionate Conservatives, children will be given at least 2 warnings before they are sentenced to death. Third strike and they're out. The children have nobody else to blame but themselves.
    You know, I used to think you were mental... Now I've come to the conclusion that you must be a troll, in which case I have to say - Good job sir

    The person i quoted used quite a sweeping generalisation.
    The adults have the right to learn methods for class control and assert their authority without compromising rules, laws and guidelines!

    I think an awful lot of children should be able to be picked up by the teacher and thrown out of the class.

    And would you say it is always possible to assert authority if you aren't allowed to touch pupils? Imagine someone is knocking over desks, hitting others, and you know your job could be on the line if you took their arm and dragged them away without hurting them...it's such a catch-22

    From the journey I've had through the education system I've never seen anything that bad. And if something very bad did happen, parents will be told and the child gets punished.

    I think more of a focus needs to be put on parents, some of who obviously don't give a crap how their child does at school, and therefore jeopardize the childs future.

    I agree ok maybe implement it in primary school and nursery. High school and beyond should be a no no!

    So, teachers are allowed to touch us now, eh? That doesn't bode well for me, considering I go to a Catholic school...

    100% for it. If kids have a right not to be abused and harassed at school, then the same goes for teachers.
