It takes good partnership to raise disciplined children


I REFER to the letter “Paying too high a price for progress” (The Star, Jan 19) in which the writer, Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, said we need to “tackle crime from various fronts. In terms of education, schools need to tighten discipline with the help of teachers, parents and the authorities concerned.”

Unfortunately, from my observation, any action taken on students for indiscipline is met by angry parents who demand explanations and sometimes twist facts to their advantage, and the poor teachers have to back down.

Letters , teachers , caring
