The assault at Adisadel College has rekindled concerns for the use of corporal punishment in schools. Adisadel College, Labone SHS, and other Senior High Schools have been in the headlines recently for episodes of indiscipline.
The Ghana Education Service banned all kinds of corporal punishment in 2019 and required all pre-tertiary institutions to use the “Positive Discipline Toolkit.”
However, some members of the public have expressed concern about this, blaming the GES decision for rising school indiscipline.
The Ghana National Association of Teachers, GNAT, has reiterated its support for the reinstatement of corporal punishment in schools, adding that this must be accompanied by teacher empowerment.
GNAT General Secretary Thomas Musah has joined proposals to reintroduce corporal punishment in schools to instill discipline.
