Teachers praise pupils' conduct in Scotland
November 24 2009
Ask teachers in Scotland whether they think their students are well behaved and they will likely say yes comma new research shows. About 90 per cent of teachers said precisely that, according to a study conducted by the Behaviour in Scottish Schools Research.
The study showed that there have been "positive changes" since the last time the surveyed was carried out three years ago.
"Across Scotland, schools and local authorities are working hard to improve the behaviour of pupils and this research highlights the many effective approaches taken to promote positive behaviour," said Schools Minister Keith Brown, commenting on the report.
The report also said the most common behaviour issue was "low level" indiscipline, like learners running in corridors or talking out of turn in class.
In other news, Schools Minister Vernon Coaker said the government is planning to bring in a new curriculum to improve education standards in schools. Mr Coaker is campaigning for the strengthening of home school agreements and new parental powers to demand one-to-one tuition.
