Violence among children
Enforcing corporal punishment, parents playing an active role in the welfare of their children and instilling discipline were some of the recommendations of parents that are concern about the upsurge in violence among school aged children. When capitol news took its cameras to the street some parents said that the changes in society are also having a negative impact.
Just recently two school boys were brutally stabbed by their classmates during different altercations in what is described by many as silly confrontations. The Guyana teachers union is ready and willing to play its part along with the ministry of education to curb the upsurge.
One parent called for the return of those big busses to transport school children since he believes the lawlessness of some mini-bus operators and the type of music played in some mini-buses are unbecoming.
