Excessive corporal punishment in schools


I WANT to bring to the notice of the Minister of Education that teachers are ill-treating children at schools, because at the Skeldon Primary (Scotts School) the nursery school teacher, who started to teach there in September, beats the children with a bamboo stick and brand their bodies.On Wednesday last, I was right by the door when she walked around with a bamboo stick and hit children. She is scaring away the children from school.Parents cannot talk to her because she is “wrong and strong”.

When she opens her mouth to quarrel, you would think she is the headmistress. The ministry dismissed very good teachers from this school and brought her, but she is bringing down the name of Skeldon Primary School.
