Corporal punishment – this time for the teachers

Now here’s an idea if the school results are not good, or they are late or teach the wrong syllabus. Cane them. I quote:

The teachers were caned by a police officer in front of their pupils after an investigation into poor exam results at three schools. The report blamed teachers for being late or not showing up for work and not teaching the official syllabus.

One of the caned teachers, Ativus Leonard, 33, told the BBC he was now too ashamed to meet his pupils. The case comes at a time when parents and human rights groups in Tanzania have been calling for a ban on flogging of schoolchildren throughout the country. The union says it will sue District Commissioner (DC) Albert Mnali, who ordered the caning in the northern region of Kagera.

Fair’s fair, no? you cane the kids if they dont study, and the teachers get caned if they dont perform.
