Political Correctness lunacy from yestrday’s Newstalk ZB “Teachers are being ticked off for dishing out lines to teach students a lesson. The Education Review Office has pulled up a west Auckland school for making students write lines for bad behaviour.
In its latest report the ERO has suggested Westbridge Residential School revisit its use of writing as a disincentive. After completing a standard review of the school it found students sent to time out were required to copy out a sheet of writing.
The intention is to help them reflect on their experience.
However the Education Review Office suggests this could lead students to regard writing as a form of punishment.”
