Punishment is very necessary for students in school

Students is too young , due to lack of social life experiences , they have no full understanding of what is right and what is wrong . Sometime they will make very stupid mistakes to persons around them and to themselves also .  
Small punishment will work as a lesson to teach them how they are expected .
But physical abuse is definitely not appreciated .

You need to separate DISCIPLINARY issues from LEARNING. To reinforce good learning habits there is no need for "punishments". Marks reflect a learner's weaknesses and strengths. Nobody can be excellent at every subject. Parents should not insist that their own child be a leading light in maths as well as the languages.

DIscipline is sometimes a problem. Everywhere, not just in China. If pupils misbeheave, this reflects their parents' poor upbringing methods. It may also explain that the child's home is not a happy place.

If society through its schools is tasked with raising children to become responsible adults they need to have a binding contract. Do Chinese parents have any say in what goes on at Chinese schools? I think not. Therefore there is no contract. Schools can become the turfs of despotic principals and their lackeys the teachers.

Too much reliant on scores and exams is typical Chinese education. We should accept the variant groups of “good” and bad" students, especially as educators. They need to try their best to help explore students' potential and inspire it rather than judge them all only by scores.
