I am not surprised by this "instant" teacher's failure and frustration. Pedagogy is not something learned overnight as the Min. of Ed.seeks to solve the teacher shortage. That said, I am a veteran teacher and teachers' counselor and I'm often appalled at the disruptive pupils and lack of respect shown to teachers in schools.To my personal dismay, as I near retirement, I can say that I've also been the victim of abuse by past pupils who knew no limits and sadly, their parents didn't either. Brings to memory "Up the Down Staircase".
