Modern methods of disciplining students are time consuming

Dear Editor,

Since the removal of corporal punishment from schools by the Ministry of Education we the teachers are now spending more of our precious time applying the so-called modern methods of disciplining students.

This waste of precious time in attending the disciplining of students without using a whip (corporal punishment) has resulted in many of us having less time to attend to those students who are extremely weak in their studies and are not doing their homework or assignments.

The Ministry of Education must understand now what the removal of corporal punishment is doing to us teachers.

Yours faithfully,

Aubrey Maison
