Do you believe teachers' rights are more important than students' rights?

  • Yes, the teachers are in charge.

    Too many students disregard their teachers and positively bully them. It has gotten so out of hand the teachers are little more than glorified babysitters. This is because the students have been given too many rights at the expense of the rights of the teacher. Even 5 year old's have cell phones now. Society has become so self absorbed they don't engage in school and the teachers need the authority to make them

  • Teachers are adults and have more rights.

    There is no reason to give students rights any more importance than teachers rights. Rights are rights. They should compliment each other between the students and the teachers. Students are under 18, not adults, and thus are treated as people who are unable to make adult decisions. That is the largest argument, that students are not considered adults. The teachers are their guardians for the time that they are at school, so their rights are more substantial. Overall, the teachers should have the power to control a classroom in order to facilitate the learning process. If a student does something to disrupt the learning process, they have violated the rights of the other students right to learn and the teachers right to teach. This is why students have less rights.

  • Teachers' rights are not more important than students' rights.

    Teachers' rights are not more important than students' rights. I think that they should be the same no matter what the issues they have are. Teachers decide to teach and get paid for doing so. Students do not get to choose whether or not to attend school so their issues should not be overlooked.

  • No, teachers' rights are not more important than students' rights

    All people in this country have rights - important rights - but they may be different rights. Both teachers and students have the right to be respected and to be in a safe environment at school. Students have the right to a fair and reasonable education, while teachers have the right to have a classroom with the supplies and resources they need to teach. Teachers and students are both very important parts of a successful school and the rights of one are no more or less important than the rights of the other. In certain situations the rights of a teacher may infringe on the rights of a student, or the rights of a student may infringe on the rights of a teacher, but it doesn't make either ones rights more important.

  • They are employees first.

    No, I do not believe teachers' rights are more important than students' rights, because the teachers are employees. As employees they are more obligated to follow their employee's wishes as a condition of employment. Students have no choice but to go to school until they are 16, so their rights are more important.
