Teachers and everybody else associated with the functioning of a school need to be extra careful with what they do and say. Children are learning all the time from what they see, hear and experience. Often, the unintended learning that children acquire from their experiences at school leaves a more profound and lasting impression on them than their structured and formal classroom learning.
Gossiping and backbiting sometimes come naturally to many teachers. The tender and impressionable minds of young children should be protected from these poisons. Schools must be strictly maintained as “No Gossiping” and “No Backbiting” zones.
Speaking ill of people in their absence is bad enough; having to see its hideous influence on small children is something that no real teacher can have on his/her conscience!
