Rejected petition return corporal discipline in schools

More details

Any child over the age of 11 who does not keep in line with the school guidelines, (as set out in the school guidelines) would be punished with the use of corporal punishment (as set out in the school guidelines). The benefit of this old rule being reintroduced would be to return the power and authority to the teachers so they may do a more beneficial job.
