    Start review of caning in schools

    Start review of caning in schools It was reported that in schools, corporal punishment is allowed for male students in severe cases of a grave or repeated misconduct and that such punishments are carried out in private (Most parents here don't spare the rod on kids at home: Study, July 30). I commend the Ministry of Education's (MOE) guidelines on how corporal punishment is carried out as it maintains the offender's dignity and ensures he commits to a path of redemption and counselling. Certain schools have even abolished corporal punishment and opted for counselling and follow-up guidance instead. The term "grave or repeated misconduct" is broad and subjective. It is about time MOE started a review on caning. Offences liable for corporal punishment should be streamlined, specific and standardised throughout Singapore's education system.
