So I was talking to a friend the other day, and for some reason or another we had just witnessed a shocking display of behaviour from a student to a teacher. This kid was being such a jerk and i felt sorry for the teacher. The teacher was being insulted about his personal belongings, hairstyle and even his choice of clothes. Now, this teacher was very patient with him and kindly asked him to sit down and calm down or walk out the classroom. He would not oblige so the teacher, gently pushed him out the door, all the while being yelled at by the kid for "child abuse." Backup finally arrives in the form of three more male teachers that escort him to the office to be picked up by his parents. Later that week I heard that the student had only been given a one week ban from school.
Why can't the teacher use more force? I'm not saying that the teacher should have been able to beat the kid half to death, i'm saying that with these laws set in place today kids can actually run riot at a school all the while not being able to be detained by teachers. I know the last 20 years the cane has been gradually outlawed by authorities for being too violent for students. But back in those days people were generally more well behaved in class due to the cane. Teachers back then would also use the cane at every given opportunity, from wrong haircuts to answering back. So I thought this should not be the case however if the cane was brought back in, but only used in extreme circumstances such as this example I have explained above. I would like to see your thoughts on the matter below. Do you agree or disagree? By the way, I am not an adult yet and have never lived through the era's where kids have been whipped.
