Children are the future and as such should be treated with the utmost respect and guided with discipline. However this is a difficult task. Children are changing but the methods of which they are dealt with have not. Schools aren’t as stimulating the minds of the youngsters nor are the extra curricular activities provided.
In relatively recent years access to information has rose exponentially. What a child can get from a teacher, a text book, or even his or her parent is only a mouse click away. This can can and has caused many children to develop authority issues. With children knowing more than the people set to teach them there is very little left for them to use to differentiate themselves from adults. They start to see themselves as equals to adults and some times police or other law enforcement officers.
There are many small groups that share similar ideas for better schools, although some for different reasons. All of them are equally important however it would be nice if there was a single figurehead to lead the movement in solidarity.
