Teachers: Bad Behaviour in Schools Rising

Teachers: Bad Behaviour in Schools Rising

A survey of teachers suggests a rise in the number of pupils with

emotional, behavioural and mental health issues.

Teachers: Bad Behaviour in Schools Rising

survey was carried out by the British Association of Teachers and Lecturers. A

majority of those surveyed said they had been forced to deal with at least one

challenging or disruptive pupil in the last year.

The

half (56%) of the 844 teachers surveyed said behaviour in the classroom had

deteriorated in the last five years. Sixty-two per cent (62%) said problematic

behaviour was worse now than two years ago.

Over

three-quarters (77%) reported verbal aggression, followed by physical

aggression (57%). Two in five (41%) said they had experienced bullying in

person, while just under a quarter (23%) reported students breaking or ruining

the belongings of others.

Over

reported being spat at, kicked, punched and scratched by pupils.

Teachers

survey found that 35% of teachers had not received any training to help them

deal with challenging students, with 42% saying they did not get any relevant

training on bad behaviour during their teacher training.

The

80% of teachers felt the rise in bad classroom behaviour was down to a lack of

boundaries being set by parents in the home.
