The researches have proved that corporal punishment increases rate of depression and suicide. In all teacher training courses, teachers are taught about the ill-effects of unlawful activity of corporal punishment. It seems that teachers need to learn their lessons well to become role models for their students and teach professionally.
It seems that harassment, paddling or spanking of children is still seen by many teachers as means of maintaining discipline and and imparting education. The unlawful act of corporal punishment is teacher-indiscipline that is punishable lawfully! How would a teacher feel, if he or she is paraded naked and jeered at?
When will our schools stop ‘disciplining’ students through ‘reward and punishment’ which are the two sides of the same coin, I wonder?
