    Are you saying it’s ok that teachers do those things? I say it’s bad manners and those who do them (students and adults alike) need to be much more respectful. Discreet, at the very least! I’ve always thought that the line between good pedagogy and what is held up as an adult learning theory (my autocorrect won’t let me type the word!) is a thin, arbitrary and artificial one.

    While I understand your question as it relates to the end of the post and I agree we should all be more respectful, I think the point is that we teach children and young adults. I wholeheartedly agree about not sending students out of class because I don’t think we can find solutions or build relationships if we stop trying. Compliance does not equal trust or respect – two things that are necessary if we want to see changes.
