  Kids don't listen to teachers during lessons
Updated 06 December 2002, 09.02
School classroom
Laura's tired of kids talking during class at her school.

"I am writing to say what really stresses me most at school.

Children being disrespectful to other students and teachers.

Detention threat

In my history lesson, I find that people in my class are always talking to each other as if nothing's happening.

They know they'll get detention, but they still do it.

When my teacher gives them a detention, they look at her as if they hadn't been told they would get a detention.

Then they have the cheek to argue.

Don't blame teachers

I am really getting stressed out with it.

It's not the teacher's fault, she can't teach a class of children with over three quarters not paying attention.

Some of us want to work hard but others think that it's cool to mess around."

Laura, 13, Kent
