Rowdy McLean: We can’t expect our teachers to be surrogate parents

Leadership expert Rowdy McLean says parents are increasingly blurring the line between the roles of parents and teaches.

“Many also expect the role of teachers to include counsellor, psychologist, social worker, mediator, friend, confidant, manager, advisor, mentor and disciplinarian – roles that are not theirs,” he said.

“As parents, those roles are yours!”
