Opinion

Dear Editor,
May I through this opinion page be allowed to voice my opinion on the modern practices in our schools? It seems whenever children get into trouble, ie. physically fighting each other they are handing a suspension which to me seems totally useless. Who gains from a suspension? Nobody, least of all the student.
I attended school in the days when teachers were allowed to punish us by way of the bamboo cane. I felt the cane more than once and I believe it was just. I know nowadays teachers have to put up with a lot of guff and their hands are tied so to speak and yes, my sympathy goes out to them (the teachers that is).
