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.
