Danish students do not show enough respect to their classroom teachers. So says the results of a new poll conducted by Megafon for TV2 News.

Half of those asked said that there is not enough respect shown to teachers in Danish schools.

An as yet unpublished report from the education ministry will focus on how the discipline and respect in the Danish school can be restored.

Accentuating the obvious
Some of the points stressed in the report are that students must meet high but realistic academic goals and that teachers continuously provide feedback on students work and ability to meet objectives while making sure that classroom rules and policies are clear to everyone from the beginning of the school year, according to TV2.

The report, which was created by a consulting group hired by the education ministry following the adoption of the school reforms, states that good classroom management is the key to creating a positive educational experience.

“A positive school environment, including order in the classroom, is essential for students to have the desire and opportunities to learn,” said Christine Antorini, the education minster, commenting on the report.
