Banning of corporal punishment has contributed to indiscipline
Antwiagyeikrom (Ash), June 18, GNA- Banning of corporal
punishment in schools is a contributory factor to indiscipline in
society. This was an outcome of a forum held by parents and
guardians at Antwiagyeikrom near Nyinahin in the Atwima district
of Ashanti on Thursday.
They said much improvement in the country's education standard
could be achieved if corporal punishment was re-introduced. Mr
Kwasi Boakye, chairman of the local School Management Committee
(SMC), said the best legacy that a parent could leave for his
child was quality education.
He therefore advised parents not to neglect their children to
fend for themselves.
Mr Kofi Iddrisu, unit committee chairman asked women to actively
involve in the education of their children.
Mr Kwasi Antwi-Boasiako, chairman of the Parent-Teacher
Association (PTA), said poor toilet facilities and the dumping of
refuse on school compound were causing serious environmental
hazards to the pupils and teachers and called on the community to
re-site the refuse dump.
Nana Kwasi Antwi-Adjei, an elder of the town who presided,
advised the parents and the teachers to refrain from using bad
language in the presence of children and also lead good lives
worthy of emulation. 18 June 04
