Q.

Punishment is widely used in schools although it does not achieve the most desirable results in the long term. Students who chronically misbehave do not respond to punishment as might be expected, and may even get worse. Schools should be proactive in identifying and providing programs that encourage good behavior rather than punish bad behavior. I am strongly against of punishing students and feel that teachers should be resign if they found indulged in such kind of activities against students.......Your comments pl.

Oh no Sumati,
I am indeed sad about teacher - student - parent imbroglios regarding punishments in schools. The positivity of punishment were evident when we were children ourselves. We would not dare tell our parents about it because it were in all good faith by teacher who guided us and parents understood to have faith in their dealings. The respect has vanished in this time. Teachers now donot punish: They harasss, students have lost respect and sanctity of school and teachers, parents have lost faith in school system as well as confidence in their wards. Tell me, where would you find that trust amongst them now a days? It is all because of cut throat competition blindly followed by parents and students alike which has stressed them so much that on a small reprimand students tends to take extreme steps. It is just pathetic that our newer generation is stressed so much. And it added fuel to the fire, of some stupid teachers taking extreme measures to tackle young minds... God ! Wher ...more

Anushasan har halat men aniwarya hota hai, parantu dand vidyarthi ki umra aur paristhiti ko dekhate huye hi sudharatmak hona chahiye. Filhal pura mahoul aur vatawaran puri tarah pradushit ho chuka hai, tatha isake jimmedar log hi pradushit ho gayen hain.

I suppose a child ought to be treated as a child . Faults / mistakes have to be tolerated and corrected by developing trust in the child and child's trust in the teacher. I suppose , the best means would be to adopt students as own and handle them then- it does not imply at any stage that if one can thrash ones' own child , why not ones' student. This undoubtedly requires trust in one's own capability of being at a higher platform of character, knowledge and up-bringing. We all have been children - i dont remember being punished ever whether at school or at home despite being very naughty.

The method was prevalent during the British rule whose basic principle was not to win the heart but to calm down every hue and cry by might. They meant discipline is in enforcing fear. The same thing is in vogue.
Transfer of power to the leaders is called independence on the foreign rules.
It does not free you from the slavery from the then prevalent ideologies , policies. Transferring of power had no condition that India should follow its method of education that prevailed before they introduced " babu-maker" schools. They had not introduced Indian way of thinking, we are following the same. Patriotism, respect for parents, worship god, and observe cleanliness of character were the basic principles of Indian methodology of teaching; which, after independence we did not think of introducing in our schools. Our leaders were happy that they are rewarded for their struggle by getting a respectable place in the government; and remain involved in how this big nation should be governed. ...more

Punishment should be given only as a last resort for serious offences. It should not be inflicted for failure to learn or remember or do homework. Under no circumstances should girls be subjected to punishment. But corporal punishment inflicted on a group, irrespective of which of its members are guilty, is wrong and equivalent to assault. The child's parents should be informed immediately of all the details of the offence and of the corporal punishment. Otherwise, the teacher inflicting injury can be sued as per law...!
