Should teachers be strict? This is a great argument and I would like to read what everyone think about the question.

Then put it in the forums. Specifically the education forum.

Teachers must be strict, otherwise kids won't learn.

If kids don't learn they are more likely to become criminals.

Criminals are bad, thus teachers should be strict.

If teachers are not strict people could get killed, if someone brings a weapon & the teacher doesn't take it away.

If teachers aren't strict than kids aren't disciplined.

It is good to be disciplined.

Thus teachers should be strict.

Teachers should be strict because kids learn more that way, & will behave better. & that is good.

In the army they are strict, So teachers must be strict.

On a more serious note:

If teachers aren't strict people will write stupid things.

I remember back in the day...

-------------------------------------------------

The 2 main purposes of school are:

a) Education

b) Prepare you for life

(No. Having fun is not 1 of them.)

In order to get a proper education, a teacher must be strict.

If a teacher is not strict the students will take advantage.

They won't pay careful attention, they won't study hard, they won't put in the effort etc.

Life:

Life is strict & tough.

You can't wake up 1 morning & decide that you don't want to go to work.
You will not have a job very long.

In many jobs being to lax can mean losing large amounts of money & even death.
I think that this is why the army is so disciplined, they need to protect their lives, & lives of the people in the country.

When things matter strict discipline is required.

I think, lack of discipline, strictness, seriousness, etc. is what is destroying America.
People are becoming lazy, they don't want to work, they rely on the government for everything, etc.

& now we're in huge debt, low rankings in education, etc.

The greatness that America had (& still does, but it's losing it,) came from generations that were much more strict, my grandfather had the janitors sponge stuffed in his mouth for misbehaving, kids got hit etc. generation did very well (Both of my grandfathers are/were millionaires, & lived into their 90's).
Now, I'm not saying that those are good practices, but we've swung all the way to the other extreme, this happened in the 60s/70s. When America was at it's peak. Then came the hippy movement, laziness, decadence, etc.
& now that's why America is falling. The swing was a good thing, but we've swung too far.
It's time to swing back into the middle, & shape up.

America is resting on it's laurels, & living off inheritances.
More & more of the wealthy people are not self made, they inherit it, & if people aren't making it themselves, it will dry up.

K. I may have gone a little too far, but you get the point.
