There is nothing to stop corporal punishments in the indian schools. It’s not just about some teacher slapping and caning children, but also about punishment being inflicted on students by students. And this happens in full glare of school authorities.
Despite being banned, corporal punishments are a prevalent practice. Not only teachers beat the students : children are even given electric shocks ! Monitors are told by teachers to use force against their peers, they are even given canes at times to beat their classmates. By this way, schools are cultivating a culture of peer violence. Teachers are teaching children to be brutes.
Most of the parents don’t complain. They approve strictness in schools and physical punishment is considered as the best way for a child to mend his way.
