Re: “Teacher killings highlight dangers of job” (TNT, 11-18).
A 2011 survey found that, in addition to some being killed on the job, 80 percent of teachers reported being harassed, intimidated or assaulted. The task force responsible for this study suggested that all educators be required to master classroom management before they are licensed to teach.
Wouldn’t it be great if the parents of the miscreants had bothered to teach their offspring proper behavior before they got to the classroom? Unfortunately, parents can’t be forced to take a class on parenting before sending the urchins off to school.
