RSG abolishes corporal punishment in schools
Henceforth, the Rivers State Government says corporal punishment has been abolished in schools in the state.
The state Commissioner of Education, Prof. Thompson Okujagu gave this indication in Port Harcourt, while speaking to journalists on the readiness of the government to meet the objectives of the Universal Basic Education (UBE) programme in the state.
Professor Okujagu maintained that though [sic] corporal punishment had negative impact on students, teachers he said, could use other measures to introduce discipline among negative students.
On the war against exam malpractice in the state, he maintained that the ministry would sustain the war until the state was purged of such act.
