he teaches ages 11, 12, and 13. He has some of the MOST disrespectful and disruptive students in his class! He probably has about 5 or 6 real problem students, then a handful that are talkative but will be quiet if he starts to get a little bit more stern. Then there are a few who are quite, get what is being taught, and like being there, and generally want to learn more.
The worse problem is that the adults in the church and the Sunday school director thinks it's ALL my husband's fault. They're opinions, I think, affect how their kids treat him. He's said that he has probably been too nice. My husband is young he's 25. He was asked to take this class by the church. He loves to teach and loves getting messages across, the problem is he can't because of these kids.
Does anyone have any suggestions for him? He's worked out a list of rules and going to have them posted on the wall then signed seperately by each kid.

Maybe hit the library and read up on discipline books, parenting books ect. to see if he can get to the root of the problem. I would also think he needs a helper. Maybe pick a new student each week to be the "helper" if the church isn't willing to help.

I don't think there is anything wrong with asking someone else to sit in on the class and observe the behavior of the students. It might be a good idea to ask one of the parents to do that each week. After having done that for a while, if the bad behavior keeps happening. I would request a meeting with the Sunday School director, pastor, student, and parents and state my case for having that child placed in a different class, maybe even the one the parents attend. It is sometimes necessary to do what is best for the greater number of people. When you have children who want to learn and they are being prohibited by some of the students, then there have to be changes made.
