I am vehemently against corporal punishment in all cases. Teachers should never have the right to enforce physical punishment on their students.
But to the those that do, I wonder, how would they feel if their superiors were legally allowed to inflict corporal punishment for their own incompetence?
How would they feel if they were caned for failing to complete their planners on time?
How would they feel if they were caned for overlooking bullying issues in their classroom?
How would they feel if they were caned for failing to cover the curriculum?
Children, for all their weaknesses, are no different to adults. We all make mistakes and we all have our lapses in judgements. Caning a student for not reading aloud is tantamount to a teacher being caned for not responding to a parent email:
A seven-year-old girl student of a private school here was hospitalised after being beaten by her class teacher for not reading her English lesson aloud in class.
The girl’s mother got to know of the incident from the school bus driver when he called her to take her daughter from the vehicle, police said.
The child then told her mother that the teacher had beaten her with a ruler because she did not read aloud in class.
The girl was admitted to a hospital last evening. Police have registered a case against the woman teacher on a complaint from the girl’s father.
He alleged that the principal had not taken any action against the teacher despite parents bringing the incident to her notice and instead asked them to give a written complaint.
