Is Corporal Punishment In Basic Schools Still Necessary?

Most teachers have learnt the truth the hard way when it comes to disciplining their learners.
Schooling in Africa can be likened to home training where the child is given physical punishments such as reprimands, caning, and so forth.

The government of Ghana has made it clear that teachers should desist from meting out corporal (physical) punishments to their pupils.

As hard as teachers try to follow this directive from government and the , they realise that the onus on them is far difficult when the use of the cane is taken out of the picture.

In some instances, parents troop into the various schools to report their own wards for disciplinary measures via extreme whipping experiences. Most teachers decline whilst just a few try to appease the parents giving some few strokes.

But, can the African child be trained either at home or school without the use of the cane? We all know how abusive some teachers and parents can be with the cane but will it absence augur well for the child’s upbringing ?
