Parents who push teachers out of work

Over the years, there has been a shift in parental support and respect for teachers. In the past, most parents were very strict about discipline, but now fewer do (“Parent kicks teacher out of classroom”, June 18). Parents need to realize that just as much is learned before school, they also have more responsibility to teach their children acceptable behavior towards others from preschool. there is. There are many stories that suggest that the teacher is wrong without analyzing the situation, suggesting that the teacher is incompetent. The same is true for educational methods. Sadly, this has led to a loss of respect and trust in the profession by the public and governments. Moreover, as parents increasingly neglect schools and teachers, so do their students. They have become increasingly cocky and uncooperative, making it very difficult for teachers and other students. Students disrespect teachers and authority, disrespect each other, and behave in ways that cause confusion. In the face of all this, teachers are becoming less supportive and almost powerless to discipline certain students.
Yes, this is a factor in teachers quitting. Why should teachers, especially older ones, need to be there and put up with it? This is a big loss for the profession as these teachers are very good at classroom management. Augusta Monro, Dural

Despite growing concerns about deteriorating teacher-parent relationships, teaching can be a profession where strong relationships are formed across multiple generations of families. Those lucky enough to make careers in one of her local classrooms have developed friendships beyond students, parents and grandparents, many of whom are taught in the same classroom. Let’s hope the respect for this profession is not terminally eroded. Janice Cleanone, Austin Mar

Parents now have numerous accusations that can be brought honestly, ignorantly, or persistently against teachers. Touching a child simply to put him in another line may be considered assault. Yelling and sarcasm are considered forms of emotional abuse. There is no parent anywhere who does not implement some or all of these disciplinary measures, but we are free to accuse teachers of inappropriate behavior using the same strategies Lack of discipline in schools is not a problem, subject to You’re just wrong. I run too. Trevor Somerville, Irawong

new coronavirus is back

We are experiencing another wave of COVID-19 and more deaths, but state and federal governments don’t seem to care (“The 5th wave is still going on, but fears about the new coronavirus are fading”, June 18). If the statistics were published regularly, more people would seek vaccination and be more cautious. Simply reintroducing mandatory mask-wearing in high-risk situations would reduce the number of infected and save lives. Graham Lamb, North Rocks

strong case

Megan Davis strongly advocates for an advisory body representing indigenous peoples and cannot be dissolved like previous bodies (“A wise voice is so easily ignored”, June 18). Voices, she argues, are constitutionally enshrined and “will not suffer this fate because they are attention-demanding mechanisms that exist within society.” Structure state’s. Lack of consultation, she said, has hampered efforts to remediate indigenous concerns, such as adoption. The Voice will solve this. We would be wise to listen to this great Australian. Andrew Mackintosh, Cromer

Possible recession

The R-word (recession) is banned in economic statements by any government. In other words, Paul Keating’s flippant remark that “Australia was inevitably in recession” in 1990 was political poison (“down the economic rabbit hole”, June 18). The current problem for Australia is that at the macro level, to bring inflation down to the RBA’s desired 2-3%, it will have to contract economic activity and create unemployment. That means we may need a recession or a “hard landing”. Writer Rachel Crane points out that rising import costs are a “given” from the outside and the RBA can do nothing about it. If Australia goes into recession, renters and heavily indebted homeowners will be hit hardest as interest rates rise further. There must be a better way to share the burden. Jeff Black, Caves Beach

bad bagel

I have some sympathy for your correspondent and her helicopter (Letters, June 18). For decades, our family has called bagels by their full name: concrete donuts. I’m not sure about her views on sourdough. Some whites can be hard, but you might want to try some sourdough rye, which tends to be delicious anyway. Seppo Ranki, Glenhaven
