Teachers these days are scared of the students. What has happened to them as a parents? How can they be so gullible as to think their children could never tell a lie just to escape the punishment they deserved?
Of course, it is right that they should be a caring society. At the same time, they must be practical and use their common sense on the issue of discipline in school. The need for this must be accepted by all parents who want to see their children grow up to become decent and responsible citizens. There's no two ways about it.
