SCHOOL REPORT SHOCKS PARENTS Teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to control classes of young pupils, says a report published yesterday. The evidence from the 100 schools which were involved in the study is not encouraged/encouraging (1). The report paints a depressing/ depressed (2) picture of schools up and down the country, with teachers feeling disappointed/disppointing (3) not only by students’ results in tests but by the worrying/worried (4) increase in violent behaviour in class and in the playground. ‘I am worn out at the end of the day; my job is exhausted/exhausting (5), I can tell you,’ complained one teacher. One of the most disturbed/disturbing (6) revelations is the use of drugs by youngsters. Although teachers were not totally surprised/surprising (7) by the findings, parents are worrying/worried (8); some even described the report as shocked/shocking (9) and demanded immediate action. Pupils who were asked to comment on the report said they found school uninterested/uninteresting (10); they blamed teachers for teaching boring/bored (11) lessons. The report is particularly embarrassed/embarrassing (12) for the Minister of Education who claimed recently that British education is ‘the best in the world’.
