Punishment on schoolboys

It’s a common scene of our schools that children are cruelly punished there. Most of the school teachers like to beat them mercilessly. They apply various techniques on students as punishment, such as, to hurt ear or belly or fingers, to stand by one leg, to bow down under bench etc etc. All these useless activities often hamper a child’s both mental & physical health. As a result broken minded generation may be got.
Recently it has been found a heartrending example ‘Dipu’. He was only 12 years schoolboy of class four. This innocent boy was killed by one of his teachers through beating.
To err is human. So it’s natural that a student may make mistakes during study. Teachers should identify the causes of mistakes and make the students understood it. Schoolboys or girls are not sinners or crimers as they would be punished such an unwise way. If a teacher advises students with proper care, they must obey him/ her. So no need of such physical punishment.
