General – Late Arrival of Students

Potential reasons for late arrival of students in class.

Late arrival of students breaks the class morale and disrupts an ongoing system. It distracts the students as well as the flow of academic sessions. Lateness may spread throughout the class like a chronic contagious disease. Steadiness or timekeeping is the fundamental rule in any business or school. Some students are too casual and do not bother about punctuality. Family issues, availability of transport, distance or adverse weather may affect the promptness. Parental support also plays a vital role in motivating their wards. Psychological factors and the demeanor of teachers and co-learners might drive someone’s slothfulness. Students miss the stipulated curriculum and become irregular in their studies. Latecomers lose interest in school activities as it acts like a vicious cycle. Understanding the reasons is necessary to design an effective strategy.
