Teacher tells pupil to write 1,000 lines for calling classmate 'sotong'

SINGAPORE - A local primary school teacher reportedly told a pupil to write 1,000 lines - because he called a classmate 'sotong'.

Thiyanes wrote to local citizen journalism site, Stomp, saying,"Primary school punishment becomes senseless. Primary school teacher punished student for calling classmate by nickname.

"Teacher asked student to write a sentence 1,000 times. He was told to write 'I will not call my friends names'.

"The student had called his classmate 'sotong'. "

The reader went on to add that the teacher had written the note in the student's planner to write the sentence 1,000 times.

She admitted that while punishing a child who had made a mistake is acceptable, she felt the punishment in this case outweighed the crime.

She added, "Punishment is to make a child know his or her wrong doing. Upon that we should teach them what's right or wrong.

"That is what teachers are for. This is definitely not the right way."

Personally I thing the teacher is within her role to punish the child, and the pubishment given is neither emotionally nor physically damaging .

The parent can have her opinion, but has no right to go complaining in public forums.
Given this environment, who would want to be a teacher? At this rate , teacher would need insurance like docs to protect themselves.

Agreed that parent should talk to the teacher directly and not blah it out loud. If happen to my kid, I will just pay a nice visit to the teacher and understand the situation (and try to get my kid punished in another way).

But this is a very lame punishment and I don't know what purpose is served. Sorry to say but we all call each other names - at least where I mix around, we do have names for other pp and it can be not so complimentary (even if it is an accurate description).

eh, use photocopier is one thing - waste paper, kill trees, waste electricity....I think that's bad too.

i think the 1,000 lines are also meant to be shared with the parents since they have to bear some responsibilities for their kid's behavior......
