Unsurprisingly, given the proclivities of certain DM readers, most of the comments so far suggest that shinpads are not the answer; spanking children is:
Spare the cane spoil the child, a good birching should do the trick, it was still legal on the Isle of man up until the early sixties. Time to reintroduce corporal punishment.

"Teachers should be given shinpads"._____________No, they should be given canes and leather straps, and the permission to use them - like when I was still at school. No-one would have dared to threaten to "shank" or "cap" any of our teachers for "disrespect" back then; but you can guarantee that the teachers would have inflicted appropriate punishment on us, had we dared to disrespect THEM. As it should be! Don't you just LOVE liberal teaching methods and human rights laws... - MancMan, , UK, 05/8/2011 17:33 Well said that man. You stole my thunder.

And it will continue to happen until we are allowed to discipline children in the way we were disciplined back in the 50s where we were taught how to respect our elders. Now you are considered a criminal if you ever dare to we give them a slap on the legs or backside.

Also, the usual attacks on "liberals":
WELCOME TO SCHOOL PLAYTIME IN TODAY'S LIBERAL, MULTICULTURAL UK.

Liberal policies created the problems. Undo the liberal policies. The excuse for taking systems that worked and replacing them with liberal stupidity was that it was progressive to do that. It failed. So get REgressive. Back to the 50's. Seriously, it's all wrecked. Tidy away the wreckage and start from scratch. Pretend that society got a gamesave in 1955 and go back to it. Just don't let liberals mess with anything ever again.

And a definite cotd candidate:
Teachers'- you chose to go into teaching with it's major perks not shared by the working people in the commercial world- so ruddy well teach!That is get the problem kids and slower pupils to learn- that's your job.Getting smart kids through exams is not teaching - they will pass anyway!
