    I personally didnt have the option until A levels so i was disruptive lol

    I guess i read what you said differently!
    My opinion is that school should be optional (Or there should be trade schools for those with a different skill set).

    If someone is acting up they are ruining it for both themselves and others; if they are expelled, onyl they lose out.
    did you read my argument? I'm sure I challenged the idea that that's acceptable.

    I'd rather that one idiot fail than the 20 pupils in the class who actually want to learn.

    Discipline.

    Definitely discipline. Those who misbehave need to have the solid knowledge that if they misbehave, they WILL be punished - and punished properly...

    In my school, disruptive behaviour is not exactly punished... lateness however is. However, when a detention is handed out, it means staying 45 mins after school on a tuesday afternoon... in this time, the miscreants are allowed to do any homework that they have...

    If even with stronger discipline, problems still persist - chuck those responsible out of class until they realise that their behaviour is damaging their and their classmates' future.

    (I don't mean suspend them and let them swan around at home - suspend them in school, in a bare room for day after day with nothing to do )

    like isolation?
    isolation only works to a point. however i do half agree with you.

    but with isolation, if people are sent to give you your work, its usually your friend, which means you sit and chat for half an hour, then they go back to the classroom and tell the teacher "they didnt understand so i explained till they did"
    also, your often not watched all the time, therefore you can go to the loo and meet a friend in the loo...

    so isolation is good, but the work doesnt get done anyway, and you can still see your mates...

    BUT the solution to this, is having to follow your head or deputy head of year around, i.e having to sit in there lessons, and do the work, which means they can sit and watch you, and it doesnt disrupt their lessons, as they often find you a corner, and the rest of the class knows your in trouble so dont talk to you...
    and at breaks and lunch they either make you stand outside the staffroom, sit you in the library, or in the isolation corridoor.

    i find this way works much better than in an isolation room or corridoor.

    and iv had both types of isolation many times when i was in schooollll....

    What if you caught an STD through your own negligence? What about if you got a sports injury? What if you tried to commit suicide? What about smokers?

    Slippery slope my friend, slippery slope.

    No one wants to pay taxes.
    It is a slippery slope but we need to say stop at some point. We don't do boob jobs on the NHS so we've already created boundaries. I think certain things should be extended. Like we should scrap the four hour rule in A&E, bed numbers increased and drunks kept longer. Currently we pump them full of fluids and get them to sober up as quickly as possible. They leave with no hangover and probably no embarrassment about having to go to A&E on a night out.

    did someone say workhouse? jk.

    In all honesty i think it's too extreme to just outright expel them and deny them the privillege of education. I'm quite glad the government doesn't resort to extreme expulsion schemes and takes the time to find out why they're not learning and how they can improve this (albeit they're quite **** at this atm). Afterall with a decent education they can get a decent job, contribute to society and not buy all the crap they read in the sun. If we resorted to just expelling kids straight up for messing about I predict a steep rise in BNP voters from uneducated fools.

    I also disagree with giving only the good teachers to good students and bad teachers to bad students. Not only will this cause problems between relations between teachers (they will clock on fast they're the '****' teacher when they're teaching bottom set) but also it will further widen the divide between students ability which will create even more prominent elitist class divides in society in the long run. Everyone should get roughly the same quality teachers regardless. Also quite a few mature near the later years ( yes I know a significant number still don't) and they end up getting decent or fantastic grades at GCSE which they never would have get if they are kicked out early.

    Take them out of it.

    They all hate school so much and think its such a waste of time, they''ll thank us for it.

    I've seen some claiming the world would be better off without school, the same kind of idiots who think the world would be better off without poilice. Ie no understanding of how the world works at all.
    Alas this is inevitably what happens when students don't see the value in education and pursue it. They end up becoming the people who complain and express their opiniinion as if it has much value. Sadly it does not.

    I've had quite a few occurrences where people would just continue to talk and talk and talk out of line in class, resulting in me turning around and asking them to shut up for those of us who want to learn. of course I would say this with a stinge of anger and irritability.

    Good way to vent that anger that amassed itself while waiting in a far too long line to eat

    Im sure some of you watched Jamie's Dream School, and although controversial, i really enjoyed the programme, and found it quite heart warming, finding myself in tears several times. SOPPY. Others say they were a load of dicks. But thats your opinions.

    Although some exceptions, i think it showed that there are a million ways to teach, and different styles suit different people. And some need a practical style. I think that in some cases, the teaching style should change.

    On a more personal note, my brother has emotional/social problems, borderline autism, aspergers, ADHD.. but because he isnt "defined" or "labelled" he cant get the FULL level of support he needs. He messes around in class, and im sure annoys other students who do want to learn. He finds it hard to concentrate for long periods of time, despite wanting to learn. I therefore think that the education does need to change, to provide more vocational subjects. And to be taught at a more fun level. And teach things that are useful... i have never used trigonometry in my life since GCSE.. and dont think i ever will!!

    Nothing should be done! You have to learn to deal with people, to not expect everything to be perfect and sterile.



    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.
    That attitude pretty much sums up why we don't have the best schools in the world now
