Call made to end corporal punishment at schools
Karachi: Chairman of All Private Schools Management Association Sindh (APSMAS), Khalid Shah on Monday demanded the Sindh education department to terminate the notification of corporal punishment, and said that the law of corporal punishment should be implemented with the consensus of the parents and academicians.

Speaking at a press conference held at a local hotel, he said that the tendency of the juvenile delinquency had increased among the students, while the lack of socialisation processes was main culprit behind phenomenon. He said, "Students should not be completely freed from punishment at education institutions through such a law, because we do not live in western world. Sometimes, the light punishments help teachers and parents as well directing the students towards right way."

He suggested the authorities concerned that the teachers should be trained specially to socialize the students in context of our social norms and values. He said that teachers' community should be freed from election duties. He welcomed the decision of the new government to start the academic session from 1st April. On the occasion, other office bearers of the association were also present. The Nation
