It seems that hardly a day goes by without school teachers being held responsible for some aspect of our childrens lives.
 
Let's start with educational results, are teachers to blame? Initial answer, yes. Poor quality teachers produce poor quality results. Subsequent answers, no, spoilt anti-social and disruptive students take up too much time and teachers are full time maintaining some semblance of order in class room.
 
Anti-social, disruptive behaviour? A resounding NO! Modern parents abrogate their responsibilities by spoiling their children, not instilling a reasonable level of discipline and covering up when the child does wrong.
 
In the USA, as the direct result of numerous mass shootings at schools, some teachers are being armed and trained by school administrators to use those weapons in defence of themselves and their students. Schools have armed Security Guards, and metal detectors are installed.
 
What an atmosphere for good learning outcomes, one of perpetual fear!
 
But it ALL goes back to the parents, those who support the molly coddling, politically correct policies rife in our society. The ones who are too busy to know what their children are doing, the ones who don't care and the simply inept.
 
What are your views on this?

I think you just summarised my views!

We are witnessing the outsourcing of childraising. With decreased time with their children, parents get more concerned with things that 30 years ago they would not have considered issues or be able to manage themselves, eg, schoolyard bullying.

Someone coined the phrase "Cotton Wool Kids", referring the soft way that modern day children are being brought up. All sorts of childrens games are being "dumbed down" in case precious hurts himself, in some cases games with even the slightest risk of injury are banned.
 
Teachers are now expected to teach our children the academic subjects they need for the future, as well as good manners, good behaviour and discipline. They are also expected to entertain the kids with PC games and games that dissuade children from using imagination.
 
I like your phrase "outsourcing of children", it sums up the modern situation perfectly;
 
From a few months old, day care so Mum can work;
 
From about 4yrs old, Kindergarten, Pre-School;
 
5 to 6 yrs old, Primary School.
 
And so it goes on, children raised by strangers, with minimal input, if any, from parents, and then pass the blame when the kid goes wrong.
 
Time to take a step back to the 1950's I think!
