Lack of discipline in schools affecting both teachers and students

The last school year has not just been challenging for pupils but also for teachers who have had to adapt to a hybrid way of working, both in a physical classroom and online.

Now, one in three teachers plan to quit the classroom within five years because of increased workload and diminishing respect for the profession.

However, as the National Education Union calls to end exclusions, 24% of parents already feel that their child’s school policy on discipline is too lenient. According to the Department for Education headteachers must decide the standard of behaviour expected of pupils at the school and determine the school rules and any disciplinary penalties.

But teachers still want to teach, with record numbers of applications to join remote schools, according to My Online Schooling, and after a year of hybrid teaching, the future of education does not rely on being in a physical classroom.

Aston spoke to Tom Crombie, founder and CEO of My Online Schooling to discuss the increase in applications to teach remotely and how discipline within schools can affect teachers, students, and the entire education system.
