More than 99% kids hit in schools

Children across the country are being caned, slapped, hit and, if they are lucky, let off with their ears boxed by teachers and school authorities, a study by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has found. The commission conducted a study on the practice of corporal punishment, speaking to 6,632 children and respondents across seven states. The study, to be made public next week, paints a bleak picture of Indian schools. Of those interviewed, only nine children denied having received any kind of punishment, indicating that 99.86% of them were subjected to either mental or physical punishment. The study conducted in 2009-2010 says that as many as 81.2% of the children were subject to outward rejection by being told that they were incapable of learning.

More than 99% kids hit in schools

Out of the total, 75% reported that they had been hit with a cane and 69% had been slapped on their cheeks. Shockingly, the study found that the practice of giving electric shocks was also being followed in some schools. Sources said the child rights commission was concerned over the findings and had formulated guidelines for the elimination of corporal punishment. The commission, since 2009, has been writing to schools and state authorities advocating a violence free environment. It has sent guidelines against condoning any kind of physical punishment. Sources said the guidelines were likely to include mental harassment such as putting down the child in any way and shaming. The new guidelines will be made public next week.
