He Was Sacked For Making Bad Comments On Report Cards by officialmario(m): 5:23pm On Apr 26
I wonder the kind of people establishing schools nowdays, for you to be a proprietor or proprietress of a school you need to have studied EDUCATION in school so as to have the clear understanding of how to handle your school and the entire staff.

My friend made some comment on some of his students report card and he is in trouble now.
These are some of the comments:
"He is not active in class"
"She keeps gang in the school"
"He is a truant."
"She is rude and not respectful",
those are some of the comment he made, and the proprietor told him to go and apologize to the parent for the comment made on their children's result, the guy has refused and has been fired for nt apologizing.

Whats your opinion on this?
did you get any comment that made your parent to be mad at you while in secondary school?

These comments are nonsense and unnecessary.

Can he also allow this kinda comment to be written on his own card?

Private schools are the proprietors’ business and no one will stand watching and allow his business to be spoilt by a silly person.

The school has principal and proprietor. If any student is rude or disrespectful, why not reporting the student to the proprietor or teacher who will find a way of reaching out to the parent?

Pass the right and truthful comment on the academic performance of the student and leave the moral part for the principal to handle.
The fact is that a good parent doesn’t need waiting for the comment on the report card before knowing how well his/her child is behaving in school. Regular visiting and/or contacting the class teacher on phone gives the parent the knowledge of the child’s behavior in school. This will bring about a prompt correction and not having to wait till the end of the term.

This kinda silly comment can have a way of affecting the students’ future if one is not careful.
Which employer will see this kind of report card later in the future and employ the child having such comment by his/her class teacher?

I remember when my form mistress, Mrs Onajite made some silly remark on my report card...

My position was 17th out of 53 and what this woman can give as a remark was; "He's Becoming A Community Tout"


My father did not take it lightly with her as he stormed the school the following academic session and warned her never to condemn me with such remark.

Those remarks are really demoralizing.

not to the extent of telling him to go and apologize to the parent, what kind of comment would you give a student that stole his teacher's handset?

my own report card is even worst than this when i was in SS2, my class teacher wrote bad comment on my report card just because i always skip maths, agric and biology class, my father scolded me and i turn a new leaf... You dont cover student just to seek the favour of the parent. Thats nonsense.

If a student stole the teacher’s handset, the best way to let the parent be aware is through summoning the parents to the school or sending the message to the parents to get them informed. Not through the report card

If any Teacher has any resentment for a student, it is better for the teacher to make a comment on the report card solely on academic performance of the student and leave the personality alone.

The report card is an official document and could limit the child's chances in the future.

There are better ways of telling parents about their child's behavior instead of writing it in the report card.

No matter how bad a child is, there is a positive side of him/her. Find that positive side and put it in the report card.

Report card. Says it all. Our moral standing started failing when we decided turning blind eyes to immoralities and bad behaviours. A good parent will be happy to see his son's bad behaviour exposed. I remember my class teacher's comment close to forty years. It made me a better person.

If you know what effect this kind of comment can have on the child later in the future, you won’t like it on your ward’s report card. When a potential employer sees it.

Best thing is to visit your ward’s school occasionally to ask about his/her comportment from the class teacher and not this nonsense on the report card

Everything is wrong in those comments. Comments on a student's report should be what they did well and areas of improvement.

lets call a spade a spade... The teachers are more closer to the student more than the parent.

since when did you use a report card to search for job or submitted it with your CV.

the teacher wrote the truth and u feel like it is demoralizing, u guys are simply part of a failed community. I faced a similar situation with the guy, in that they told me not use red pen to write in the report card, I told them I can't rewrite what I have written.

during our days if our position was 4th downward, we are in trouble not now that ur set glorify failure

For good measure, wisdom is the principal thing.
for example.
He is not active in class could be - "He could do with participating more in class"
She keeps gang in the school could be - "I will suggest the company she keeps is vetted" and so on.
He is a truant - " He needs to improve his attendance in class"

My point is we basically said the same thing but my choice of words were chosen carefully. I mentioned where they need to improve on rather than calling them names.

Ur friend was supposed to give a remark on things that makes her not learn or things that she does too much that deter her from being better.. Remarks are sometimes supposed to be constructive.. if the child is doing badly,u give them a reason that child should do better, e.g
"Brilliant but too playful"
"willing to learn but sometimes disturbs"
"Knowledgeable but too quiet"
they should be constructive enough to take both Positive and negative feedback... Not disrespectful and rude wey that ur guy dey talk..
