 I believe school teachers should share the responsibility of parenting for the following two reasons. (@)
 I believe moral values should be taught in school for the following two reasons. (A)
 The first reason is that teachers can compensate for a lack of discipline at home. The more the number of working parents increases, the more limited what children can learn at home. What’s more, when it comes to children, education is the most effective deterrent to crime because laws and fear of punishment are not effective for children because children are not punished by law as severely as adults. Therefore it is natural to believe that teachers should instill moral values to their students.
 The second reason is that teachers are responsible for the disciplining of their students to prepare them to become full-fledged members of society. As our society becomes more materialistic public civility is deteriorating. On top of that, ordinary people do not need to study overly-advanced subjects unless they want to become a specialist in that area. Therefore teachers should prepare their students to become full-fledged members of society by disciplining them for bad behaviors rather than merely teaching overly-advanced subjects that the student feels is a waste of time.
 As I mentioned, for the aforesaid two reasons, I believe school teachers should share the responsibility of parenting. (@)
