Sample text

Pupils were prepared to admit that they sometimes broke rules in full knowledge of the consequences. Examples included getting oneself into break detention to be with a friend, carrying on chatting in flagrant disregard of the teacher, reacting to lessons they found difficult with petty disruption. The majority were prepared to risk a break detention for this kind of resistance. There was a widespread feeling that break detentions are not regarded as serious; on the contrary some pupils were said to use them as ways of appearing ‘clever’ or ‘hard’, and instances were quoted of pupils who just treated detentions as ‘a good laugh’, although one or two admitted to feeling scared on the first, perhaps only time they had had a detention.

For some it never came right, and they lapsed into traditional authoritarianism or struggled on as ‘weak teachers’ before succumbing to ill health and early retirement. One of the problems facing teachers who did not want to be authoritarian, and that faced all teachers after the outlawing of any form of physical punishment after 1987, was the lack of consensus about alternative forms of classroom control. The predominant metaphor for classroom relationships was still that of a battle for control between the teacher and the dominant class members, but, in the eyes of some teachers, and the words of one, we were forced to face the battle ‘with our hands tied behind our backs’ (Wilson, 2001).

Somehow these messages were not getting through, partly I suspect because of the defensiveness and anxiety that the OFSTED inspection and its aftermath were causing across the whole school. ENTERTAINERS, GURUS AND MENTORS 35 Teachers’ overriding need was to be allowed to do the job they came into the profession to do. They wanted to be able to teach the lessons they had spent much time and energy preparing, and they wanted to be able to do this with due attention to the individual needs of pupils.
