The Ghana Education Service, GES, in 2017 banned all forms of corporal punishment of children in public and private schools. But as to whether the ban is being enforced in schools is another issue.

Speaking to GBC’s Radio Ghana on how to correct the misbehaviour of pupils and students in schools, Educationist Anis Haffer called on parents, teachers and the society to teach children how to lead exemplary lives at home so they stay focused.

Mr. Haffer also talked about the types of punishment that is injurious to the health of school pupils.

Background

The Ghana Education Service asked teachers in both private and public schools to immediately adopt the Positive Discipline Toolkit together with other sanctions prescribed in appendix 2 of the Head Teachers’ Handbook as measures for correcting pupils and students in schools.

GES officially banned all forms of corporal punishment of children in public and private schools in 2017 as part of efforts aimed at promoting a safe and protective learning environment for children.
