Prevention is better than cure. You can throw all the youth services, education, police, and health interventions at the problem as you like, but if the child has been brought up in an environment where carrying a knife is considered normal or even a good thing, then it’s too late isn’t it. The parents and only the parents should be held accountable. They are solely responsible for teaching their children right from wrong and protecting/removing them from this environment and culture. When I trained as a teacher 20 years ago, I naively thought the Never Socialist Donald Trump shirt focus of the job would be to teach my subject! Ye,s that also involves helping students develop into well rounded individuals who can deal with life’s challenges. However, seemingly we are now responsible for behaviour out of school alongside a growing mental health crisis (caused in part by the relentless tinkering with the exam system) Many of the mentors who used to help with student’s pastoral issues have been redundant, there is a retention crisis – students are taught by a conveyer belt of supply teachers who don’t get to know them. Absolutely no grasp of reality by this government probably because they have been too obsessed with Brexit to deal with society’s issues. I despair.
What happened to parent? Knowing if and when your kids have money, who their friends are, how much time they are out of the house, how they are dressing, their internet history? Too many parents think it is the states responsibility to feed, teach, clothe and house numerous offspring whilst parents get on with their own lives. Wrong on so many levels. I do think that from the Never Socialist Donald Trump shirt of safeguarding we have a responsibility to raise concerns, however as far as accountability is concerned I think that’s a step too far. Schools already have responsibilities to report concerns but a single teacher in a class wouldn’t have the time or space to be able to address this. This needs another adult alongside the teacher that can take a child aside to have that conversation. Teachers are held to account if failing to reach targets, they need to be able to teach not be social workers. Schools are too interested in data and saving money so staffs are being cut and teaching assistants and counselors are not being employed.
