School Discipline in Ghana: Getting the Cane

Download videos:


This video may be instructive for those who are interested in volunteering as a teacher in Ghana or other African countries. Physical punishment was somewhat regular at the school in Ghana where I served as a volunteer teacher. I did not like the beatings, because I think they disrupted the learning process, and to be honest, because they seemed cruel. On the other hand, unless you run the school, it is not something you can realistically hope to change. Filmed in March, 2010. There was some dirt or damage to my camera lens.

Solving problems with violence ...\nIt's been proven to be an ineffective modifier of behaviour.\nWe had a Pakistani teacher, Mr. Majid, who regularly caned students in a Canadian grade 6 class.\nHe was neither liked nor respected; he was hated by all.

This is jokes. If you need to discipline pupils, make it good. This is mere jokes.

When I grew older, i went searching for the teachers who used to enjoy beating me and hired help to give them a taste of their own medecine. All except one wicked nun. She made me stand in the middle of the field at noon and stare at the sun then sneaked behind me and threw me a bucketfull of cold water. She also thought me how to write as I had difficulties, I have finger deformities to remind me of that. If I was ever minister of education. This is one act I would ban. It is barbaric. Often the reason for the beating is also unfair. You did not bring a ruler, you were supposed to bring a fruit and did not, you have no eraser, your school fees are not paid. All most often are things the child has no control over. It breaks my heart to see this.

What I don't like about it is not WHAT he's doing but HOW he's doing it. All this running around and random whacks is not punishment. How can you teach discipline if the PROCESS of punishment is this undisciplined? It must be a set \

Woooow, I went through this even worse, hehehe. We used to get the real hot ones. Like 50 per day.

Isn't it a proven fact that beating children lower their IQ (or prevents its development)... they need to stop.

Not our country, not our business. If this is how they choose to discipline school children in Ghana, then that's their choice, their right, their business. As long as it's not sexually abusive in any way, or excessive, then we have no right to step in. I'd be willing to bet that those kids are much better behaved than the spoiled lazy brats in our country. And I'll bet they even learn real respect, and grow up to be respectful, contributing members of society, which is more than I can say for over half of our population since the days of spanking, getting the wooden spoon, have gone out the window because of whiny crybaby cupcake libtards. The kids weren't yelling and screaming in pain. They weren't even crying, From what I saw, not one tear was shed. Furthermore, many of the kids had smiles on their faces when getting their lashings. Kids these days are super pussies. Look at them cross-eyed and they are crying to mommy.

what did these kids do to deserve this?

I went through this too . These boys are foolish sometimes you can outwit the teacher by putting notebooks behinds your back or on your butt and the teacher won't notice because he is busy with canning. Today's generation they are not smart at all. Lol
