    I was just wondering what your opinions are on this issue, because I'm sure most of us have experienced students who plain and simple aren't interested in learning and so stop everyone else from learning. I mean personally I think if someone doesnt want to learn and has demonstrated this fact they should be taken out of education as they're a detriment to people who want to learn. Although I do see that there may be some issues with this.

    Anyway I was wondering what other students opinions were.

    What I'm saying is, nothing further should be done. People who really do have detrimental impact on students education are punished. You'll just have to learn to deal with those who are merely annoying because they chat and may be inclined to pissing about.

    Maybe put them in a differently orientated school, different environment where they can learn instead.

    Extreme but very very logical.
    I hate people that are ignorant of this privilege

    I don't really understand why people put up with it. I often find 'can you shut up please, I'm trying to learn' works quite well.

    Why they are there is another story....

    I'm looking forward to going to the new sixth form college being built for year 13. I'm at the sixth form at my old high school plus another. But the other school has good teachers (well mine are) but kids from rough areas (well rough for suffolk) and we're always getting disruptive lower school kids being put in our lessons.

    One time one of them was nearly crying and promised to behave herself because they were scared of us sixth formers and didn't want to come inot our classroom especially seeing as we had bunsen burners and chemicals out.

    Privilege? When i walk past the bottom, bottom set of science GCSE, it sounds soooooooooooooooooooooo boring. If i was in their position, all i would do is mess about!

    I hated school education untill gcse/sixth form.

    Education is a privilege, not a right. If you can't behave yourself like a civilised human being then why should you gain the privilege of education?

    We worry far too much in this society about helping the"poor little darlings" who can't/won't behave themselves. Lets concentrate on helping the people that actually want to help themselves instead.

    Inspire them. Find out why they're disruptive, 9/10 it'll be because they're bored. In which case, because I think my subject is pretty fundamental to them I would get them to see why it's important and teach them the fun/interesting bits. If I taught a subject that I didn't see a point in for them then I'd tell them to shut up and get on with something else in the corner, then do fun stuff with the rest. If there's another reason they're kicking off then I'd help them figure it out/point them in the direction of people that can.

    I think it depends on the age group really.

    I know the younger years for example Year 1....a simple threat to remove their break from them or their lunch is enough to make them quieten down and listen. If they're persistent in being disruptive them sending them to another class normally does the trick because they come back realising it's best to learn with their class rather than sit at the back of a strange one isolated!

    A good idea, but schools will not do this as they spend funding right up to what they get for the last pupil.


    What they need to do is stream them, right from Year 8 (people like this never change) into their own form and should be taught seperately in every subject. They should get all of the rubbish teachers, freeing up the good ones for those who want to learn.

    I'm sorry but why the hell should my education be compromised because people can't shut up and respect the teacher? You must be one of the people who think it is acceptable to gossip about your boyfriend consistently through lessons.

    In my opinion, in high school and onwards, teachers should be able to remove a child or a teenager at college from a class and for them to be exempt from the rest of that class, using force if necessary. If the problem persists, expulsion is a viable option.

    What elitist bull****

    Some kids mess about because they just don't understand the lessons. Giving these kids **** teachers will be detrimental.

    Obviously TSR is full of the geeks who don't have much fun in school and went to learn. I used to be a **** student and I think the best thing to do to people like that is put in isolation and force them to do work.
    Let their parents know as well.
    Expulsion is a ridiculous idea as all that does is add one more person to the line of uneducated masses Britain already has.

    Thing is, it holds back the rest of the class. Either way, it's harming other students' learning.

    Wait a second, just because you do not understand, it does NOT give you the right to mess about.

    You shut up and ask for help.

    Why the **** should a teacher help someone who misbehaves?
