Why are teachers being blamed for the inappropriate behaviors of students? ... Submitted by a New Bedford High School Teacher
In Saturday's paper Dr. Durkin stated that "the teachers, in those instances, agreed they had acted rashly". She also stated "that some incidents stemmed from teachers struggling with classroom management and said that professional development would be offered"(read article). Why aren't parents being held accountable for their children's behavior. Teachers not only teach curriculum but life skills, appropriate behaviors and manners. Why are teachers being blamed for the inappropriate behaviors of students? The teachers at NBHS are here because we believe in what we do. We recognize the population we work with, we don't need to be admonished but supported by the community we serve!
