in many countries schools have severe problems with student behaviour. What do you think are the causes of this? What solutions can you suggest?
Educating is a tedious task which needs meticulous efforts. Lately, there have been many incidents of student violence in educational institutions. A student is not the sole culprit in such cases. In fact, the circumstances and the society is also responsible for a young mind to go berserk.
Importantly, students face cut-throat competition in the modern world. The pressure of studies and the expectations enveloping a student's mind makes them vulnerable. Also, family pressure, like financial situations, problems with parents, disturbing and unfriendly family environment aggravates a student's problems. Moreover, lack of psychological and sociological understanding on part of school authorities creates new problems for students to face.
Nonetheless, bullying is a problem which many students face. Public embarassment makes them turn violent and vent their rage. According to many psychologists, violent movies, shows and videogames have a negative effect on student behaviour and their tender minds. All the mentioned causes and some other unknown reasons have a severe negative influence on students. Students tend to become either very inactive and scared or they turn very violent. For instance, my cousin studying in high school was recently scolded by his teacher. His friends were caught sniffing drugs, so he was also under suspicion. When the teacher's tried to ask him name of other students, he behaved in a very disrespecting and rude manner. Such behaviour is unsuitable in a school. Similarly, there have been cases of students carrying firearms and killing innocent people in schools of USA and many countries.
Tackling unruly student behaviour will require efforts from all- parents, society, school and the student themself. Proper counselling and guidance should be given to students to ease their inner turmoil. Parents should also have a friendly and understanding behaviour towards their child. They should refrain their child from watching too many violent movies or playing such games. In addition, proper surveillance systems should be in schools/colleges to not let students carry any firearm or guns. A proper guidance with love and understanding would be a better approach than punishing, threatening or disgracing students infront of their classmates.
Lastly, a student is like a clay which can be moulded in any shape. The society, parents and teachers should discuss problems of the students and the students should also complain freely about any problem they face. Young minds are very delicate and they need utmost proper care and guidance. Implementing the measures will make students curious for knowledge and motivate them them not to behave in an unruly manner.
