Scolding Children in Class may Hamper Their Learning

Scolding at the hands of teachers may interfere with learning because it may give children the feeling that they are disliked, says a new study.

Dr Tamara Bibby, who led the two-year University of London project, is of the opinion that children should be allowed to chat in lessons, instead of asking them to sit quietly and pay attention.

"Making children sit quietly and look at the teacher may be counter-productive. Talking to each other is one way children learn. Criticism by a teacher can raise feelings of anxiety about not being liked and therefore interfere with learning," the Sun quoted Dr. Bibby as saying.

The research on nine and 10-year-olds was conducted as part of the Government's move to curb troublemakers.

The newly introduced rules provide for the imposition of a fine of 1,000 pounds upon parents whose children are expelled, if they let them outdoors during school hours.

Meanwhile, kids from inner cities would be bussed to suburban schools under Tory plans to improve discipline.

Failing schools serving sink estates would be closed if pupil numbers fell. Tories feel that it will help more children get a better education.
