مدرسون يضربون عن العمل بسبب عنف طلابهم

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Teachers have gone on strike protesting over violence, threats and "poor management" at a school in Lancashire, UK.

Staff at Darwen Vale High School in Darwen said they had a lack of backing from management when they confronted pupils over bad behaviour.

About 70 teachers formed a picket line outside the 1,100-pupil school during the one-day walkout on Thursday.

Head teacher Hilary Torpey said management was in talks with the unions over how to improve staff support.

The unions say pupils' behaviour includes challenging teachers to fights, pushing and shoving staff, pupils making malicious allegations, constant swearing, and filming lessons on mobiles and threatening to post them online.

There have also been problems with cyber bullying and pornography, it is claimed.

It is alleged that when teachers confiscated pupils' phones they have then been returned by management, leaving staff "totally undermined".

Bad behaviour is often cited as the main reason teachers leave the profession and improving it is one of the UK Education Secretary Michael Gove's stated priorities.

He recently gave schools greater powers to search for mobile phones - said to be part of the problem here - and to give on-the-day detentions.

But nationally heads and school inspectors say behaviour is not a big problem. The teaching standards agency OFSTED says in most schools behaviour is good or outstanding.

In schools where behaviour is bad - everyone suffers. Teachers cannot teach and children cannot learn if pupils are playing up.

Top heads say good discipline involves setting boundaries which are clear and "firm but fair", imposing penalties when these are crossed - and having engaging lessons to keep pupils' attention.

Parents of children at the school were told no classes would be held during the walkout.

Pupils are being taught temporarily at former Holden Fold school buildings, which have a capacity of only 800.

The original Darwen Vale High School is being rebuilt under the Building Schools for the Future programme.

The new £18m school is scheduled to open in September 2012.

For me mainly the problem is the teachers are not very careful of the students and don’t like this so the teachers must be friendly with their students

I think the bad behaviour it's not a very problem in the big states but it's a very problem here in African and Arabic countries.
