A private tutor beat a student severely with a leather belt for not doing her homework. The incident happened in Bengaluru. The seven years old is a class II student of St. Joseph School in Nelamangala in the border of Bengaluru.
He has been her private tutor for nearly one year. She went to the nearby home of the tutor on Tuesday as always but she could not do her homework. The teacher got furious after knowing this and thrashed her with a leather belt.
When the girl came back to home, contusion all over her back, her father who is a businessman, complained to the police.
The teacher, who had been giving private tuition to students for the last 15 years, is yet to be under arrest.
Earlier this month, on August 1 two teachers of Nusrat Ali Islamic Madrassa punished Class IV students tying them with chains for not doing homework at madrassa in Haryana. They were found by their parents and the police arrested both of the teachers.
On august 3, three brothers, the eldest (10) among them, sat chained together with their father’s consent inside the madarsa by their teacher for skipping classes in Bengaluru. The father and the teacher had been booked under sections of the IPC (Indian Penal Code) and the Juvenile Justice Act for wrongful restraint.
And being the most shocking case, a 9 year old girl, a student of class V at Vivekavardhani Model School in Huzurabad,Telengana died on 23rd July, 2015 after being punished by her school teacher for not doing her homework on 16th July.
On 12th December 2012, a teacher of St Mary’s Public School on Queen’s Road, Bangalore, beat a class III student so badly that his front upper tooth was left broken, a bloodied lower lip and the teacher also hit the boy’s face on the desk as punishment for not doing homework.
Yes, if students do not do their homework, the teacher must punish them but punishment should be given with a positive approach, only to improve the child, not to hurt them. Teachers should motivate the child to do his/her work, they should be encouraged by their parents and teachers, and then only they will enjoy doing their work.
