In the African setting, disciplinary actions are normally associated with some levels of corporal punishment for which the use of canes are common in especially schools and other learning centers.It is believed that, the pain inflicted in the body parts of the culprit will prevent him t her from repeating same wrong another time.
In line with the regulations laid down by the Ghana Education Service with respect with the use of cane, the maximum one can give out is six, bring it a serous crime and must be justified if not, then there is no need to use a cane on any student.
Reporting from Connect FM, a member of the TV3 news group via their official twitter page is a news of a teacher who lashed a 15 year old girl mercilessly and has caused her inability to sit for even a second and his reason was not made available anyway.
