Teachers angry at parents

146

Teachers in Nkhotakota district have hit at parents who distract them in the line of their duty.

The remarks were made at Chankhasi Private Primary School during the 2016/17 academic year final term closing ceremony.

Speaking during the ceremony, the headteacher of the school Mr Ntchita criticized some unruly parents who attack teachers when they are performing their duty.

“I want to tell you that we are professionals and whatever we do is in line with our teaching profession. You don’t need to tell us what to do and when because that is against our ethics.

“If your child has been punished you don’t need to turn against us but understand our role. We have various ways of making your children responsible citizens so give us chance to do that,” Ntchita said.

The headmaster gave another recent example where a parent attacked teachers at the school for allowing his children to take measles-rubella vaccine.

“The vaccine campaign happened countrywide and for a certain unruly parent to just come at the school and question us was unjustifiable. Please parents you have to be civilized and stop behaving childishly because such campaigns will benefit your own children not us,” he said.

“If you wanted to attack authorities in such campaign, you could have gone to district health office not us because we were just the last players in the whole process,” Ntchita said.

Malawi24 caught up with one parent who concurred with the headmaster by criticizing the malpractice saying teachers should be free to do their work.

“Indeed it’s bad to be telling the teachers how to perform their duty because we are not teachers. They undergo a teaching training where they learn various skills of how to build our children,” She told Malawi24.

“Sometimes it’s just ignorance that drives some parents to act like that. People should become modern and stop interfering in things that they don’t have knowledge of.”

  4. Yaa , Why sending ur kids to school while u dont want thier teacher to punish them if they r doing wrong? What type of parents r u? Have ever been punished at school? Or u r not educated at all, then y sending ur kids at school, keep n educate them urselfs in your houses, is it all about democracy? Think!! If u have never been at school in ur life that i can understand. Stop killing ur own children.

Asazabwere kwaine coz zautsiru sindifuna. If you don’t want us to mould your children’s behaviour then do it by yourself.

  12. Tinkakumba zimbuzi ife. Tinkalumidwa ndi mamvu, kukwapulidwa, all sort of punishments but now teacher are at our pride saying this was my pupil. To parents the best revenge on teachers is the pupils success. Teachers continue your duty.

  13. Ufulu kwambiri wawononga maphuziro kapena autengera pagongo’ Ndiye pothawa mikangano aphunzisi azanga tiyeni makolo otero tiwasiye aziwonanga maphuziroko manso tipereke chibalo choyenera mogwirizana ndi msinkhu

    Mulandila ma transifer musakufuna.
    Sometimes maphunzisi mumaganiza ngati makolo onse ndi mbuli and you take things for granted.

  15. I think if you allow children to have rights at xool…… no wonder to see them dropping out xool with pregnancies &/ganja,midoli……
    I thank my teacher for the punishiment they gave me in those days….. now a good citizen..

    So punish them for the betterment of our nation….

  16. Punishment for what? They are there to learn not to be punished.adzangoyelekeza kumenya waine olo kumpatsa chibaro I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL TAKE THEM TO COURT.DZUKA MALAWI DZUKA ANA SAKUYENERA KUWAPATSA CHILANGO KOMA KUWAPHUNZITSA KHALIDWE LABWINO. Ma private schools are doing well in malawi but teachers dont punish/beat students.WINA AZANGOYEREKEZA HEHEHE TIDZAONETSANA

  17. What kind of punishment was that made the parents go angry, maybe parents wanted to know exactly what went wrong. Teachers sometimes will beat a child based on their own frustration from home and parents have all it takes to question that kind of punishment, it is the parents right to know.
