Burning Questions: How should children address teachers in schools? Sir, Miss, Mr, Mrs or first names?
IN THIS modern age when communication is often informal, how should pupils address their teachers?
Should teachers be greeted as Sir or Miss still? Should they continue to be called Mr or Mrs by their students?
Or should pupils be allowed to use teachers’ first names? Would being less formal show a lack of respect for teachers’ status?
Other than tradition, is there any reason why children (and parents too) are still expected to identify teachers by their surnames?
