Essay about education family and teachers
This is a very flexible topic to argue upon. Both sides have their own pros and cons. But I would like to argue on the fact that the family has a crucial role in the education process and this role covers mostly the discipline.
In the following paragraphs, I have supported my argument with some examples.
First of all, in my opinion, to be a decent human being means respecting others and this is something that comes from discipline and education. In my life, my parents are the example that I always try to follow. They taught me how to be strong, brave and self-confident; but they have tried to teach me mostly how to be correct, fair and kind.
Secondly, school and so teachers have an important role in the formation of the child, but the whole work that teachers do at school has vanished If it is not supported by parents. indeed, when I was in high school I had a teacher that was literally perfect, she wanted to communicate us which were the right values and how to be correct citizens, but unfortunately she failed. She failed because in my class there were a lot of guys that were ready to learn from her, but when they come back at home had a different example. Their parents had not ever supported the teacher, the school or the discipline, so for them, it was easy “lose the path”.
Thirdly, I believe that another reason why discipline should be a responsibility of parents is that in everyday life we hear stories about parents that argue with teachers to defend their children. So if the parents always protect them, teachers are not free to do their job and they cannot teach discipline.
Thus striking the right balance, into what is responsibility of parents and into what is responsibility of teachers would surely mean success, but after all is said, one world should always stay in all mind: balance.
To sum up, If the balance is not possible, from what I have discussed above, we can safely reach the conclusion that discipline is should be a responsibility of parents.
