    Well, the Catholic priests are going to have a field day with this one.
    In all seriousness though, it's a good idea for the chavs, but random searches shouldn't be allowed and I know some teachers who are absolute ***** and will probably abuse the power.

    Idea - In stead of on the spot searches, Teachers should be able to search someone if they have just cause, the headteacher gives consent and they are both accountable for it - meaning if the search was investigated and found to be unethical/unnecessary/not justified, the teacher could face disciplinary action.

    Should teachers be able to restrain students? Of course. They should be allowed to restrain them, and physically remove them from a classroom if they refuse to leave. Its the interests of the other, well behaving students that you have to consider.

    Well, maybe none of you guys went to ****ty schools, or have ever worked in a school, but I support this.

    The problem many seem to have is that individual teachers may abuse it, that's the same with anything like this. It won't be the majority.

    Male teachers in girls' schools fully support these measures apparently...
