Classroom Discipline

The teacher should handle disciplinary problems in the classroom with utmost care. Correcting the student verbally may not be enough and other means may be necessary. If infraction and misbehavior continue as attested by anecdotal records or journals, the teacher should refer the offender to the guidance office. Most disciplinary problems in school occur if the teacher does not know how to discipline students or if he ignores misbehaviors or reports by students, parents, or colleagues. Every teacher is expected to impose discipline in the classroom and anywhere in school. The school’s policy on child protection and anti-bullying should be applied. A PTC is required if misbehavior becomes persistent or difficult to handle.
