Corporal punishment

To discipline or not to discipline children through corporal punishment is a dubious topic among researchers, academicians and parents in the present times. You often read stories in newspapers or come across reports on television channels where children are subjected to undue spanking, slapping or even verbal abuse in order to punish them for meagre acts such as failure in completing homework or wearing untidy uniforms to school, or for being naughty and disobedient towards their parents at home. Horrors of violence and abuse against children raise questions of whether these extreme measures can act a catalyst for taming a child’s behaviour or can have serious ramifications on their mental and physical development.

 Music education could be left out in an obsolete aural era if it does not keep up with the ‘technological advances’, a detailed report by music commission reveals.  This”disconnect” possibly means that the existing teaching practices have become obsolete or outdated and hence technology can assist music from disappearing from schools, according to an article published in BBC .

Education is the wholistic development of an individual. Intellectual, moral and emotional knowledge are crucial to achieve the end wherein a pupil becomes a socially responsible, compassionate and functional member of a society. Education is more than what any school can provide to a child, and the learning does not, cannot and should not stop once a child steps out school boundaries.
