my sister is doing her eigth grade in a school nearby our house.on that particular day,she came cying to home and showed us the bloodclots in her hand and also a few other wounds in her legs.when asked why,she replied that her teacher had beaten her with a stick because she had not answered a question.the next day i went to the teacher and asked her for an explanation.she simply replied that it is a common occuring everywhere and it is just to improve the academics of my sister.she also warned me not to come again regarding this matter and they(school management) are ready to issue TC to my sister incase if i'm not satisfied with their explanation.what should i do now?

I don't think beating up students would make them better ones. In fact this could just lead them to hate school all the more. I think its horrible that people think this is the right thing to do. Disciplining a child is the role of the parents, not the teachers.

it is also considered child abuse because it is not a way of a professional teacher to beat his/her student in class for not answering a question. this may cause low esteem in the part of the student and this will lessen his/her confidence. you should take action if the school management have not given satisfying reason for the action of their teacher and did not make any neccessary steps on what they are going to do to the teacher, then report it to higher authorities. dont let it happen to other children. children are our future so lets teach them in becoming great when their time comes.
