This grade four student had been thus punished for a minor offence allegedly committed by her. The teacher had asked 44 children, out of a class of 50, to knock the girl on the head.this was reported at the meeting by the Galle probation officer Ms. K. Nanayakkara

    Are we training sadists or psychopaths as teachers? This teacher needs to be taken to a psychologist to get her mental status verified.

    The country is full of sadists right from the top. Kindness is not in their blood any more. It is about revenge anger and a pleasure from bullying the vulnerable. That teacher should be sent to parliament where she fits in a lot better than in a classroom damaging children.

    Mostly Sunday schools produce good citizens. Promote Sunday schools with good selected teachers since now a days we cant sure about anything or any one.

    Not only Galle schools this and similar incidents used to happen in leading schools in Colombo too. Hope they don't happen in Colombo schools any more.

    She is in the wrong profession, either she apologizes at the assembly to the child or must be imprisoned, she must be an ideal person to work in the butcher shop, moron.
