President of the Barbados Union of Teachers, Pedro Shepherd is worried about the rising indiscipline and a lack of respect among students and says urgent action is required across the wider society to reverse the trend.

Mr. Shepherd was speaking in the wake of a recent viral video showing a verbal clash between a teacher and a student at the Ellerslie Secondary School.

He says part of the problem stems from principals and teachers having fewer options for disciplining students.
