Hi, I'm teaching at a new school and I have a difficult class, who seem to now hate me and are quite vocal about it. The issue is listening to music on their headphone. The school says that students are to not be listening to music in class, however I know that probably half of teachers are allowing students to listen to music in class. I have been consistent with the policy from day one and have students remove the headphones whenever I see them. Unfortunately 3-4 students in year 9 have become quite angry towards me. They spent last lesson yelling rude things to me in class and making a lengthy petition as to why it is unfair which they have emailed to principle, AP. I held them back for lunch. Should I just let them listen to music in class as other teachers are doing as it would probably make my life easier? Or should I enforce an inconsistent school policy?
