Japan schools to rethink beating

Postby dorothia15 » July 24th, 2007 3:26 pm

Japanese school education should rethink their decades-old ban on corporal punishment, a government-appointed panel has urged.
The report, submitted amid growing concern over bullying, stopped short of overtly backing beating, but suggested an end to a policy of leniency.
Around the same time, the education ministry received dozens of anonymous letters threatening suicide believed to have been sent from pupils.
Japan's education minister had previously denied bullying was a factor in the youth suicide rate.

Every concerned individual should take this into action. The development of child education to adult education is really important, on molding the future of the child.
