Foul Language in schools

Kids pick up foul language from just about anywhere. But it’s the responsibility of schools and parents to nip this tendency in the bud.

School kids, should you use foul language? Aren’t there better ways to express yourself?

Walk into an VIIIth grade, VIIth grade, or for that matter a VIth grade classroom, and you are more likely to come out having a massive heart attack, thanks to the kind of language kids these days use in class...
...... ... ... ...

Parents: “Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.”

Schools/teachers: “The quality of a university is measured more by the kind of students it turns out than the kind it takes in,” and Students: “All power is within you. You can do anything and everything. Stand up and express the divinity within you.”

Agree that F-words are getting to be more problem in whole society.

Another problem is rude/not polite uncivilized manner and words. Maybe not F word, but rude way of speaking. In this children are learning bad example, of none other than GSS Rao !!! When he is shouting at them like a cattle herder the children also start to copy his style unconsciously.
