I went to Moseley Grammer and I am now a teacher with 30 years in the classroom. Believe me most of the teachers that taught me would fail utterly in a modern classroom!


Hi De Hi I doubt that very much they had the cane way back then and were not often reported as suffering with stress because of pupils. When I was at school we had a gym teacher who said to one of the so called hard nuts of the class if you fancy a knock let me know let me know and we'll get the gloves on , they weren't frightened of schoolkids in those days , throwing board rubbers , chalk, boys pulled out of their seats by their sideboards . Bending over and slices being taken of your backside with a 12" rule was commonplace then it taught us respect , teachers nowadays don't know they're born no wonder the kids are running riot. One thing for sure if I had my time over again I'd go back to my original schooldays no problem . The only reason in my eyes why the old teachers wouldn't get on today is because of what they can't do to bring kids up correctly.



If voting made any difference , they wouldn't let us do it.

I couldn't agree more Scipio.

Scipio,
One of our teachers would say to the the hard nuts in class. I will see you after school in the play ground. There was never anyone waiting for him, he was a little Welsh guy he also took P E.

Fred


Are you talking about Mr Jones, who also did the Duke of Edinburgh award Scheme. I had him in class 3.1 and I thought he was one of the best teachers in the school. Even if I did have the cane off him more than any other teacher. At least he did it correctly and was the only one who recorded it in the punishment book from the headmasters office.


This is him on a photo that I picked up from somewhere all I know is that it's at the top of Clifton Road and I think that his old van that he is walking past.

Phil,
That's the one.   O0   He came with us to the I.O.Man and we all had a great time. I did play him up friendly like and he and Mr Right picked me up and put me head first into one of the rubbish bins at the holiday camp.   Lol.
