Pseudo parents and cops

When will teachers in Thailand learn that we want them to spend their time EDUCATING our children. In other words spend their time teaching our children Math, Science, English, History, Art etc.

Too many teachers spend too much time behaving like pseudo parents, social workers and even policemen.

If a child has a problem then refer them to the correct people. If they dont do homework tell their parents, if they are having sex underage tell a social worker and if they are doing drugs then report them to the police.

It is NOT the job of a teacher to behave as a “second parent” and certainly not their job to act as pseudo police officers. For the sake of our children, and our countries’ future, spend your time teaching the good kids who want to learn and stop wasting time on the bad ones who don’t.
