This has become necessary after the Ghana Education Service officially ban all forms of corporal punishment in all Schools in the Country in 2017.
The decision by the Ghana Education Service was part of efforts aimed at promoting a safer and more protective learning environment for School children in the Country.
Prior to the ban, child rights activists were against the use of cane to punish School children as they deemed it as a violation on the rights of the child.
Some parents also have issues with teachers who came their wards in Schools, especially when it resulted in injuries.
Now, the Ghana Education Service has published a list of recommended disciplinary measures for teachers in the Country.
Below are the recommended list.
1. Writing lines of sentence on the board
3. Designated sitting place for the child
4. Extra task for the child
5.withdrawal of responsibility and or positions for the child
6. Letter to parents.
Now the question on the lips of many Ghanaians is whether these measures can be deterrant for School Children.
