Sindh calls for end to corporal punishment

The Sindh Assembly has called on the government to scrap a law that is often “misused” to justify corporal punishments at schools.

The resolution, moved by Shamim Ara Panhwar, came after the issue was raised in Geo News programme “Chal Parha” hosted by famous singer Shehzad Roy. The programme aims at reforming the education system of Pakistan.

According to the legislators, Section 89 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) was being misused to justify punishing children in the country. The law allows guardians and person having lawful charge of children to punish them “in good faith for their benefit”.

The devolution of education budgets to the provinces has in many cases been little short of catastrophic since the provinces lacked the capacity to spend the money effectively; and it will be years before their capacities are built to appropriate levels. There is no shortage of education projects across the country, some of real merit and potential, but many have fallen by the wayside
