Teachers need to invest in continuing education: As educators, we need to invest in our own continuing education. It is nave or rather foolish to assume that students' behavior will improve and that their academic achievements will go up while teachers' skill sets and teaching abilities remain the same. It is obvious that practicing teachers will need new skill sets commonly taught in classroom management workshops and which are capable of helping them effect dramatic change in students' behavior management and also helping students achieve academic excellence in this modern age where our digital-age classrooms do not have instructional manuals for teachers on building classroom discipline. Every certified classroom management workshop equips teachers with skills that can be directed towards achieving specific tasks, easy to apply, and proven in real modern classroom settings.
It is no longer news that teachers generally weren't given lots of training on practical and targeted ways of controlling unmanageable school children neither were they equipped with the requisite tools to bring disruptive students under control though the colleges and universities have never been negligent in loading potential teachers with lots of theoretical knowledge. The result of inadequate training of teachers means you may not have been sufficiently prepared for the challenges of managing unruly youngsters as a teacher. If classroom management can be frustrating even to experienced and veteran educators, then it is terrible for you to make a success of your career in teaching without being equipped with a wide array of practical tools for building classroom discipline.
No matter how disruptive youngsters may be, there are practical tools teachers can use to manage them: The training and tools for managing the unmanageable students have been in existence for a long time though absent from the routine training programs of teachers in the colleges and universities. Youngsters who suffer from conduct disorder are a sizeable part of the society we live in with an estimate of 11-14 percent of the population. There are different levels of conduct disorder, and different ways of managing each situation but an uninformed teacher who nevertheless is concerned about managing the unmanageable students may depend on one approach for managing the different categories of students with conduct disorders and therefore be faced with high failure rate which is capable of leading to extreme frustrations and the decision to quit the profession.
