The first stanza refers to the children as being a, 'pack of unruly hounds!' When the writer refers to the children as being unruly hounds I think he is trying to explain that there are a lot of disobedient children and there is only one teacher to control this pack of hounds. The fact that the children are being referred to as animals means that man should control them but the teacher can't control his hounds. The teacher says, 'How long have they tugged the leash, and strained apart.'
