Message Subject In the 70s we had DISCIPLINE in schools. What happened?
Poster Handle My Fear
Post Content
It was almost military-like. Standing up when a superior (teacher) walkedä in. Greetings (e.g. "Good morning, teacher!") were mandatory and the entire class would say it in unison. You always asked for a permission to speak. You did not leave the class until you were dismissed by the teacher.

You were punished if you forgot books or hadn't done your homework. Your mouth was washed with soap (really) if you cursed.

Back then nobody had ADHD or exhibited chronic bad behavior.

Most important of all, the parents didn't make excuses for their kids or tried to get special rules for their "special kid". Everybody was treated the same.

If you got good grades or the teacher commended you, you KNEW you had done a good job. No participation trophies back then.

Not in my memory of the 1970s but definitely not as bad as it is now.

I blame a bunch of things. Government and corporate corruption, Leftist policies, Communism, Media/ entertainment which has always been full of communists. Then there is Feminism, big government, social welfare programs, civil rights abuses, reverse racism, DIVERSITY ( not a strength, but a great way to make money and hold down production cost) destruction of the family divorce, and let us not forget vaccines, poor quality food and a lack of exercise and sunlight.
