In England, several headteachers say they plan to address the recent riots by telling students that such behaviour is unacceptable and by teaching them about their responsibilities as citizens. Primary-school headteacher Kate Frood said she will teach students how to make positive changes, while maintaining respect for the law. Principal Gill Kelly said the riots will be a topic of debate in citizenship lessons, and headteacher Lawrence Montagu will discuss the root of the problem with students -- that the country's young people feel they lack opportunities.
