I spent fifty years of my life working in the field of education including ten with boys and girls who were in secondary school. I taught in an all boys junior high school in Harlem where I was assigned the eighth grade discipline kids so I do know something about discipline and problems in a class. A teacher in an Egyptian secondary classroom decided that a boy was a problem who required some sort of discipline. By the time he got finished with the process of instilling good behavior patterns the boy had a brain hemorrhage and was close to death. We do not know the name of this “teacher” other than he still defends this process of discipline. He now says that “I had no intention to kill him, but the beating was part of discipline.”
Heck, his behavior of killing youth is no different from that of the Egyptian government which fires away when some young folks decide to protest. After all, when in Egypt if you do not like the teachers who run the country, place a dunce cap on your head and stand in the corner. I have a hunch one can not keep kids focused on work if they are dead. Just a hunch.
