Security at schools across the country is not one that can be taken lightly, said President of the Guyana Teachers Union (GTU), Mark Lyte, as he indulged this publication in an interview recently.The need for security, he said, is especially important in light of the fact that there has been an upsurge in violence in the school system.  And violent situations, according to him, have not only been among students,Zapatillas Baratas Online Espa?a, and students and teachers but rather there are occasions that parents feel the need to be violent as well.“There are times when parents and guardians would try to barge in the schools to attack teachers if they feel that a teacher has not treated their child or children in a proper way,Wholesale Shoes Free Shipping Worldwide,” said Lyte.There are some cases that even warrant the attention of the police.There have been requests made by some schools for the Police to patrol the area of the school to dissuade some violent activities.The security concern, Lyte related, is one that has been raised at the level of the Ministry of Education, even with the Minister of Education, Priya Manickchand.He said that while schools do have security personnel,Discount Air Max 90, the quality of persons attracted to this profession are not always capable enough to prevent some of the violent activities that persist. “They are not generally able-bodied. I mean no disrespect to the persons who are employed but usually (some of these security firms) attract aged persons who can hardly move around,Basket Jordan Junior Pas Cher, so if somebody comes to the school to attack you they really can’t provide any security…it (security work) also attract a large number of females,” Lyte considered.“No offence to the women but a lot of the time we need to have male figures as well as females,” said the GTU President. “Troubled schools should always have at least two security guards.” This is in light of the fact that if a visitor arrives at a school they must first go the office. One security guard should be responsible for taking that visitor to the office while another remains stationed at the school’s gate.Without this measure in place the school’s premises could be left unmanned allowing for a number of eventualities, Lyte speculated.  “We have been advocating for this to be addressed,” said the GTU President.But according to him,Nike Schuhe Schweiz Outlet, “What we have been hearing is that, the Ministry of Local Government has to deal with that, Ministry of Education can’t deal with that.” The problem with this, however, is that the GTU is seldom allowed an opportunity to negotiate with the Local Government Ministry.Lyte added that addressing violence among children within the school system could be better addressed if closer attention is placed on corporal punishment. According to him, even with a moderated version of corporal punishment in place,Air Max Shop Italia, some children within the school system exhibit behaviours that are less than acceptable.This state of affairs, according to him, permits teachers very little scope to deal with some children who are prone to violent activities in the school environment. “Violence remains a major factor…it is a burning issue,” said Lyte as he alluded to violent situations that see students attacking each other and even cases of student violence against teachers.The GTU President amplified the need for strategic measures to be put in place to address challenges in the school system such as Guidance, Counsellors and Welfare Officers. “Because of the numerous problems we have in our school system teachers are required to do their normal duties, and also battle with children who are deviant and so this poses a challenge for teachers,” added Lyte.
