Do you think schools (especially public schools)are too strict, not strict
enough, or just strict enough with students these days?
I think parents aren't strict enough. The schools have their hands tied to a certain extent but there's definitely room for improvement.
Frankly, I don't have the wherewithall to answer this question.
I find that my son's school seems to be just strict enough. I can't judge any others.
I think it depends on the school and the teachers.
In some ways the strictness is good, they do not tolerate bullying, but I think that they are too strict they are killing creativity, individual style in some of kids that they cannot think for themselves (out of the box).
I think they
are getting way too strict. For instance, my old high school will not
let kids wear
I don't think it's a matter of levels of strictness. It really depends on the individual teacher. With overcrowded classrooms and parents unwilling to back up the teacher's authority chaos tends to occur.
The question is too broad. I eschew both blanket damnation and unfocused optimism.
The schools are not strict enough. Students leave with an inadequate education and little respect for others and for themselves. Granted, schools cannot and should not do the job of parents, but I don't think they do their own job well because they are reluctant to be strict.
