Antigua And Barbuda considering ending corporal punishment in schools

1

Cabinet Notes:

 

The Cabinet considered the issue of corporal punishment administered in primary and secondary school, both public and private, and gave consideration to ending that form of punishment.

 

The Cabinet however concluded that consultations with principals, teachers, parents, guardians and others with an interest in the operation of schools shall also take place, before a final decision is made.

 

Expunging the authority to engage in beatings of those youth under the charge of educators is properly left to parents and guardians; alternative forms of punishment are likely to be adopted and beatings ended.

  1. What about the buggery and selling rum on certain days? Those colonial laws need to be removed from the books.
