Excellent point, and I totally agree that students need discipline that is fair and consistent. Students will often fulfill a teachers expectations of them.I agree with a lot of what he says. Obviously you don't need a Hitler in the classroom but what he says about the importance of discipline and class management is true. It needs to be taught and taught well. Far too many think learning is about sanuk and thats what students want. I believe most students want to achieve and work their arses off when they are actually getting somewhere.
I think Steve is brave, in talking out about some of the inconsistencies, in the Korean EFL system.
