There is a new focus on tackling poor behaviour in the classroom

Poor behaviour in the classroom has been identified as an issue by the three major parties.

The government wants more behaviour management measures within schools - particularly to tackle low-level disruption.

The Tories want to stop appeals panels over-ruling heads over exclusions and to set up "turn-around" schools.

The Liberal Democrats would improve behaviour with smaller class sizes and better-trained teachers.
