Let’s get some watches

“Let’s get some watches”, said an underage kid looking for loot in the riot last night.
London’s burning, and has been torched by the worst of a generation, whose behaviour would have been excused throughout their time at school, not by the classroom school teacher, but by a society that demanded that pupils should not be blamed for their challenging behaviour.
Bad behaviour became a phenomena to be explained and excused, and the worst behaviour became a “special need” of the pupil, that demanded extra help for the pupil.
Society demanded that bad behaviour should be tolerated and over time all school pupils have learnt to coexist with the worst offenders in the class room, The majority of pupils have kept their noses clean, but all at least witnessed the rule of the worst behaviour, and all have seen how the worst offenders were able to get their way in a classroom setting, and many pupils found reasons to respect the worst behaviour.

Theresa May said this morning after the night before that we do not use water cannon in this country, and that we must rely on society to intervene and stop it happening again. She reminded me of the typical Head Teacher that explained the failure of her school’s academic achievement on the failure of teachers to provide “fun” in the classroom, while sending supply teachers into classrooms, knowing that they would be tormented to breaking point.
Lets have some fun, let’s get some watches.
