After reading Dr. Artika Tyner’s column (March 2021 issue), not once was it mentioned that students are responsible for their own actions. Schools, staff or teachers don’t make students tardy or disrespectful and shouldn’t be blamed. Tardiness and disrespect may be minor reasons for suspensions, but that behavior disrupts classes and other students who are at school to learn and improve their future. Respect and punctuality should be taught at home, as everyone learns by example.
What happened to the days of respecting people’s well being and property? Also respecting elders, like teachers? Punctuality is also a good habit to learn for improving life and keeping a job.
Let us all remember the future of each individual is in their own hands.
