Shocking that bullying is still in some schools

A few days ago, it was there in the news of a young man who underwent some form of brutal bullying that saw him being injured in the process. According to this young man, they were about fifteen students who were paraded by the seniors with claims that they were not respectful. He went on and said that they started beating them up but for his case the beating was so lethal that he lost a tooth and another was left hanging loosely.

Though it was hard to establish whether the school management was aware of any bullying incidents in their school, it was obvious that nobody was willing to seriously take up the matter. First, this student was sent away to seek medical attention on his own to at a rather distant health centre away from the school where he was forced to trek for kilometer. Then this student’s mother had issues with the school’s management for failing to notify her of the son’s misfortunes. She claimed to have been called by another concerned parent who found her son in a sad situation.

So the media people got wind of this incident and accompanied the student and his mother to the school but were restrained from getting into the school compound. His mother called out to be let in but the gate man declined to do so citing strict instructions from above. When the gate was finally opened the teachers locked themselves up in the office and the police were called in, in the name of restoring peace. This parent was mad that nobody bothered to tell her that her son had been beaten by other students and on top of that they were still mum even when she came personally came to school. But all in all, she said that they have at least done the sane action of giving her son a transfer letter because from the experience of her son, there was no conducive environment of learning in the school.

It’s so sad that some students in schools like this one still think that they are in school to be seen and heard in their actions yet they ought to know what you leave with after finishing the studies is what really matters.

How to Control Anger

Anger Controlls Him

While some of find it easy to control anger, a good number of people have no control when enraged. They might do something so stupid before realizing too late of their deeds.

Anger management is a tough go. However, it depends on an individual. The will to be a good person plays the major role in this reform task.

The thought of doing what is right at the right time is what brings someone’s senses to reality. It may take long for someone to master this important trait. Nonetheless, when it happens, one needs to keep practicing in order to overcome anger in unnecessary situations.

Another thing that helps in anger management is being associated with people who are not easily irate. This closeness acts as a shied or a barrier from anger in a situation where one wants to burst into angry-flames but other people seems to be so calm and unmoved. This helps someone to realize that anger is not the only solution to human problems.

In most cases, people who have a problem with anger tend to believe that anger makes them superior in the society. They believe that they can make their way through in any situation because of their violent way of dealing with things. This is wrong because anger only arises agony in the society. And when people are pinned into a desperate situation, they would respond by violence. And the cycle repeats on and on in revenge missions.

Sometimes as human beings, we are forced by circumstances to assume the lowest position in the society for better good. Being infuriated and violence only makes the situation to deteriorate, and might end up badly instead of solving a simple misunderstanding that needs non-violent approach.

Well, if you only need to accept the fact that the pen is mightier than the sword and make peace instead of going out to beat up somebody.

Parents Sue The Government Over Runaway School Fees In High Schools

With school head teachers holding Kenya‘s education system for ransom, parents —who have known for a long time how the government has abandoned them– have decided to seek for justice from the judiciary over payment of ‘overly’ hiked school fees charges in public High Schools.

Since the government is the overall body manning the running of all public schools, it has been the hope of parents that it ought to come in and bring sanity to the education sector.

I remember sometimes last year, the Deputy President was adamant that school heads charging high fees will face the full force of the law but so far nothing has been done.

But just yesterday, parents made up their mind to sue the government due to a repeat of the same issue of hiked school fees. The government maintains the education is free but I think there is something that parents are not being told.

More questions arise from the issue of smooth learning of schools. It’s true the government reimburses funds meant for schools but whether they are enough or not, it remains a secret and it’s not known what the funds really cover.

May be the government is hiding behind the ‘free education’ yet parents are still expected to part with something.

Looking at high cost of living, it may mean that the school head teachers are left with no option but to charge school fees in line with what is demand. But then even school heads have been in the past in the receiving end when the funds are released very late and yet they are expected to ensure smooth learning of schools.

I think the best thing to be done is to establish if the government fully funds everything that is required for smooth learning of schools. Parents want a situation where they are sure what happens but not relying on ‘maybe’. Let them know whether they are supposed to like buy textbooks for their children as the government covers everything that is required for smooth learning.
