This is What Happens When a Teacher Hits His Student (Photos)

I hate corporal punishment.

I hate that it’s legal in some states in the US. And I hate that terrible teachers use it as a crutch to establish control of their class.

These pictures are hard to watch, but important for establishing the inhumanity and barbarity that corporal punishment can cause:

 

A primary school pupil in China has been brutally punished by his teacher for giving the wrong answer to a maths question.

Pictures have emerged on social media showing the 11-year-old, named Xiao Yong, left with dozens of bloody marks on his back and legs.

The maths teacher, surnamed Yue, has been suspended by the Xianglu Village Central Primary School in the city of Shiyan, central China’s Hubei Province, according to a Weibo post by People’s Daily Online.

According to reports, Xiao Yong, a grade-five student, was whipped by Yue, his maths teacher, with a power cable in the afternoon of June 17.

Yue had asked Xiao Yong to go up to the classroom and answer a question written on the blackboard.

Xiao Yong was chosen because he had received the worst score in his class – 81 out of 100 points – in a previous examination.

However, Xiao Yong failed to answer the question, which enraged Yue, who is in his 50s. 

Yue found a power cable in the classroom and savagely beated Xiao Yong.

It’s reported that the metal core of the cable had been previously removed when Yue used it to smack Xiao Yong, but the pupil still screamed as he was punished in front of the whole class, the report said.

After Xiao Yong returned home after school, he did not dare to speak about the beating to his grandparents, with whom he lives. 

However, one of his cousins discovered the scars after hearing the child complaining about aches on his body.

Time to Install CCTV Cameras in Classrooms

April 10, 2016

 

For every teacher we catch crossing the line, I fear we miss hundreds. By installing cameras in classrooms, we both deter teachers who might have considered unprofessional behaviour or at least catch them when they do.

It’s Never a Good Idea to Chase a Student with a Ruler

January 14, 2016

 

 

Whether it was done in jest or seriously it is never a good idea to chase a student. Especially in the age of mobile devices.

Organisations Come Out Against Corporal Punishment

February 17, 2015

Congratulations to all the esteemed organisations that have spoken out against corporal punishment. The sad reality is though, 19 states in the US continue this practice with no sign that any of those states will change their stance.

Another Brutal Corporal Punishment Incident (Video)

July 21, 2014

 

As if torturing these kids weren’t enough, the fact that they were blind children makes it seem even more inhumane and brutal. Those involved should be jailed for a very long time:

In a shocking incident from the town of Kakinada in Andhra Pradesh, a video has surfaced showing some visually-impaired children being beaten by their school principal and another unknown person. The children can be seen and heard screaming, begging to be spared in the video.

While the children plead, the teacher is seen caning them mercilessly.

A case has been registered and both the accused have been taken into custody. The state’s Child Rights Commission has said that it will separately investigate the case.

Corporal punishment in schools is a horrible idea!

Not only is it demeaning and degrading to children (the very children we are served with the responsibility to protect and nurture), but in my view, teachers do not even deserve the trust that goes with such a task.

There is an idealised notion in the wider community that all teachers act with the best interests of their students. I wish this were true. Sadly, it isn’t. Some teachers, a minority but still enough to make you worry, think very selfishly when it comes to administering consequences for student infractions. They just want whatever and whoever is bothering them to go away, the pain or discomfort inflicted on the child is an afterthought at best.

Don’t believe me? Click on this link.

If corporal punishment was allowed, the very best teachers would refuse to practice it. Some of those that would implement it would inevitably include tired and worn out teachers, low on patience and with a distinct anger problem. These teachers are incapable of administering punishment properly whether by force or any other means, but especially by force.

I’m sick of the radicalisation of education! Why does it have to be a case of hit the child or spoil the child? Why can’t we seize the middle ground and offer a school experience that is positive and vibrant, that makes each child feel valued for who they are and who they can become, but at the same time build high expectations for proper behaviour and attitude?

I think the thoughts of Dr. Donnelly (a man whose views I often agree with) are quite regressive and disappointing:

 

The head of the Abbott government’s national curriculum review has backed the use of corporal punishment for ill-disciplined children in schools if it is supported by the local school community.

Kevin Donnelly, co-chair of the national curriculum review and a widely published commentator on educational issues, said on Tuesday that corporal punishment was effective during his childhood and still has some merit.

“What would you, as you’ve been involved with this for so long, describe as the best punishment you can come across even if it is one that has gone away?” asked 2UE host Justin Smith. “I’m not alluding to the strap here. I don’t think you would ever resort to that. You would never advocate bringing that back surely?”

Dr Donnelly responded by saying, “Well” followed by a pause – an answer that surprised Mr Smith.

Dr Donnelly continued: “I grew up in Broadmeadows, a housing commission estate in Melbourne, and we had a Scottish phys-ed teacher.

“Whenever there were any discipline problems he would actually take the boy behind the shed and say, ‘We can either talk about this or you can throw the first punch’.

“That teacher would probably lose his job now but it was very effective. He only had to do it once and the kids were pretty well behaved for the rest of the year.”

Dr Donnelly went on to say “those days are gone”. But questioned further on the merits of corporal punishment, he said: “If the school community is in favour of it then I have got no problem if it’s done properly.

Have a read of this article and tell me that angry teachers with permission to vent their frustration in a physical form against their students is a healthy situation:

 

A South African teacher is facing a possible murder charge following the death of a student he allegedly beat on the head with a belt, the education department said Wednesday.

Sizwe Kubheka died in hospital last week after the incident left him deaf and with blood clots coming from his nose, according to South Africa’s The Star. The student, aged around 16, lived in Palm Springs, south of Johannesburg.

Before the boy’s death the parents had laid a charge of attempted murder with police, according to the education department.

“The alleged beating happened at school,” said Gauteng province education spokeswoman Phumla Sekhonyane.

“The teacher has been arrested, we have taken him out of the school environment,” she told AFP, adding that the man was later released on bail.

“He is facing a very serious charge, in South Africa corporal punishment is completely outlawed,” she said.

Both the police and education authorities have launched investigations.

The child’s mother told the newspaper that her son returned home complaining of a headache on March 17.

She gave him painkillers because the family could not find transport to hospital, but his condition worsened.

“My boy was deaf just before he died. He couldn’t even hear or see us when we spoke with him at his bedside,” said Maria Kubheka.

“His left eye was swollen and wide open. He couldn’t even blink the eye.

“The last time I saw him, hours before he died, he had blood clots coming out through his mouth and nose.”

South Africa banned corporal punishment in schools in 1996, but as many as half of students still get beaten, according to the Cape Town-based Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention.

I hope all those misguided souls that believe that the answer to the behavioural problem in our schools is to allow teachers to engage in physical violence watch the video above.

Teachers should never be trusted to meter out physical punishment and it is abhorrent that Western democratic countries still allow this awful practice.

19 US States Still Allow Corporal Punishment in their Classrooms

It is quite upsetting that 19 US States still allow corporal punishment in their schools. Below are some damning statistics taken from 2005-2006. I hope the numbers of students hit per state has dramatically lessened since then, but I somewhat doubt it. Of equal concern is the ratio of black and Hispanic children being metered out this outdated and inhumane form of punishment.
