Dear Editor,

Krishna Nand Prasad (10.2.2004) asks the question: "How must teachers deal with disruptive students?"

One possible answer is: "Moderate your zeal and draw your pay."

Another possible answer is: "Read what the law says on corporal punishment in schools and follow the law to the letter."

A third possible answer is: "Read the Ministry of Education's booklet: Alterna-tives to Corporal Punishment and try to follow the suggestions."

A fourth possible answer is really a question: "Given the prevailing circumstances in the schools and in the country, what on earth are you doing in the teaching system?"

Yours faithfully,

George N Cave, AA
