How about punishing the teacher for not doing their job in teaching the student and encouraging the student to learn.

Seneca, you are not quite right on this one. Ok, the report does not mention bad behaviour, but the kids are pulled up, the parents are brought in and everything is recorded and sent to the Education Department. The kids are also referred to behaviour specialists who are embedded in even medium-sized schools. Children who are naughty are given detention, suspended, or expelled.

There is no hitting, but there is discipline. Compared to my day, when there was hitting, there does not seem to be any difference in naughtiness. However, there is a difference in how it is handled. The educational outcomes also seem much the same.

Look at the two stand-out countries for education: South Korea and Finland. They achieve pretty much the same with completely different approaches. Maybe we don't need to hit kids?

What you are talking about  is teachers beating children. No, How about discipline of teachers for incompetent teaching and failing to adequately teach the student.

With authority comes responsibility, will the teacher be punished if the teacher fails the student?

Schools had a legal responsibility towards providing a suitable academic environment when I went to school and even failing to provide an appropriate temperature would cause the school to come under official scrutiny and closure.

You can teach a student to learn by leading a good example so what kind of an example is this school setting by resorting to physical abuse? To freeze them because you failed to inspire them or simply because the teacher has failed to adapt to individual needs or even accept that we are not all born equal is no justification for such treatment.

However, I notice that the classroom already looks full and lack of facilities is probably still going to leave students out in the cold even if they are grade A students.

Maybe it’s time to send in the school inspectors with a remit to remove the Head Teacher and the teacher(s) for failing to provide an appropriate academic environment and heads should probably roll in the Department of Education as well.
(mostly harmless)
