SSir Paul, himself a teacher in
his earlier .m.s, said he did not. pretend tok
'be kn!'-,wledeable about " -id
i method" in t.:..'s .:l-sr-om and. vould n:-..
.mi':est to the teachers how to do their iJ:b.
He Cw:.uld, however, take a "glacce" at the
S:h'ol was he is "not as far rern..ved from the
j.e:Troom as some mav hn: "

SHe is advised, he said, that teaching is
more demanding than before, if only
because of the numerous problems
i students bring to the classroom. In
,many instances these very students
are otherwise normal, loving people,
he continued, but he has been told
they have an apathetic, sometimes
hostile attitude towards school,
teachers and assignments.

A fair number of th.:e students pl.y..,
fail to t.:&:e a interest in s;.ho,:,.l:'.'rT ..ud

is no longer :-.ti-:f.irg and learning is a lost
