Behave responsibly

It is a shame to say that our society still practices corporal punishment. Schools should abide by the laws government framed to stop this kind of punishment. Either the school or the teacher has no right to punish the students. A student is physically and mentally affected by corporal punishment and even tends to commit suicide in some cases. Even parents punish their children for their mistakes but schools sometimes end up taking extreme routes. Humiliating a child in front of his peer group is the worst thing. The school should take care to treat the students nicely. The institution is responsible for taking care of its students and should guide them properly rather than resorting to corporal punishment.
