I was reading the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter where I read that a teacher is being charged with assault for for giving a 7 year old a slap.
I agree that you shouldn’t hit children, but there might be a few exceptions as I consider there to be in this case. The kid had spat the teacher in the face, and the teacher had reacted without thinking.
This means that no matter what you do to a teacher, no matter how little you respect them, the teacher can do nothing than to just stand there. This I believe just leads to kids today just respecting their teachers even less, which really isn’t good for a good schooling.
