Read the following text about Corporal Punishment
School Corporal Punishment refers to the physical punishment of students. I think corporal punishment is bad for the following reasons: Firstly, corporal punishment creates enmity between the teacher and students which can cause students to perform badly. Secondly, this kind of punishment can lead to severe injuries to students. Thirdly, it also creates fear among students. My advice is that corporal punishment should be prohibited, students should be advised and counselled instead.
Exercise 1
  1. Mention the effect(s) of corporal punishment.
  2. Give your opinions about the following; (a) the Environment. (b) HIV/AIDS (b) School rules (c) Child labour.
