    Mathematics teacher giving very harsh punishment to the students

    I am a teacher in an ICSE medium school and recently I have given charge of being a class teacher of standard 3 students. Students usually complain me about their Mathematics teacher harsh punishments. Some of them even have scars left on their palms. Mathematics teacher is a senior member of this school. Is it good to suggest him directly?

    Re: Mathematics teacher giving very harsh punishment to the students

    I am glad to see that you are really concerned about the students of your class. The responsibility of being the class teacher is a huge one. Students learn a great deal from their school. Students should be punished, in order to teach them to learn to distinct right from wrong. However, if, capital punishment continues to be practiced in this way, then students will have no respect for that teacher. You should discuss this issue with the principal, instead of talking directly with the concerned teacher. Principal can take care and address this problem efficiently.

    Hi, Please do not take any actions based on what the students inform or complain about, rather please try observing the behaviour of the Mathematics teacher towards the students. Once you are sure and have sufficient proof against the inhuman behaviour of the teacher, then instead of talking directly to the teacher being discussed, please take this matter to the principal of the school and request the Principal not to disclose your name as it might lead to unnecessary enmity between two teachers. The Principal will sure take an action in a matured way. Thanks.

    As you are a class teacher then you need to take some necessary steps to stop such practices , as abusing the chidren by beating them with the stick is not allowed to anyone and its illegal.
    Law does not give permission to do such things.
    If you like to stop that then you should not think that he is senior or what, just go to the principal with child he has beaten and also show tha scars on their hand.
    Try to get as many as children you can with you to complain against that teacher.
    After that principal should not have any option other than to fire him or taking any useful action against him.
    Rest of the things will principal will take care. If he is not fired then and again he is doing the same things then you can go to the police for the same because according to law he will get the punishment and also he needs to pay for that as well.
    Try to act very early in these situation because nowadays many students are diying of such things.

    hello mam,
    Physical punishment is crime as stated in our law.
    I think you should consult other teachers of same class and discuss this matter. After discussing go to the victim teacher and talk to them in a group so that she may not harm any single teacher as she is in senior teacher.
    If immidiate action is not taken then this would lead to disastorous impact on some students which may spoil their future. Some of students may have hypertension and at that point their parents would consult with the principal . so at that point mathematics teacher as well as class teacher would be in problem as class teacher is responsible for each and every thing.

    It is not at all permissible to give such punishments, this is also against the law. Any teacher cannot not even there parents can punish children like this. It would be much better that you take some quick action against this. As it can cause trouble to the reputation of the school. It is understandable that as your maths teacher is senior he have that conventional way of teaching students with punishments but he have to understand that things have changed now. You cannot punish children like this.

    Instead of talking to him directly as a class teacher it would be better that you put forward this matter in front of your principle and let him handle the situation. As a senior person and with authority he can understand this matter and can take appropriate action accordingly.

    hi
    this is not the time whena teacher can hit its students hard or behave with them brutally.
    This is a criminal law in today’s society. Therefore you should go to that teacher and warn him that if he would not change his behavior towards the students then you would file a case against him in the court.
    And if he still continues to do the same behavior with the students then you should go ahead and file a case against that teacher.

    Re: Mathematics teacher giving very harsh punishment to the students

    Respected sir you are looking highly and purely dedicated to the future of students that is why you made this issue highlighted in India because to get some valuable solutions and suggestions so we assure you that you will get satisfactory replies

    If you have seen scars on the palms of the students then this is very disgusting that can not be ignored just like a normal case because behavior of that teacher is really worst and I am sure that one day the current behavior of that teacher will definitely harm him in the job because this type of dictatorship does not works for a long time and one day it has to be stopped by hook or by crook because this is against the society and law of the government of India and according to the new passed bills on elementary education and protection of child in school no teacher can hit or beat students and if any student does anything against the instructions then he/she should be warned by teacher but no teacher can raise their hands on students and if sometimes go more than over the limits then teacher can slap them easily but not make scars on palms

    If students complains you then you should know that they trust in you and believe in you that only you can help them out in this situation so you should not go behind and first you should call all those students and talk to them over this issue that you will allow them to share your problem with the principal of the school but you all will have to keep my name and identity confidential and do not tell anyone that I have suggested you to go to principal then send them to the principal office and also instruct that show your scars and start weeping in front of the principal then principal will get all information and call that teacher and will punish or warn him and he will never try to do it again with you so this may be a right solution

    When principal scold that teacher then you also should talk to your colleague over that issue and ask for the reason and if teacher say that he did something wrong with the students so you should also make him understand that this is not good with innocent students and you must leave it before anyone complain you again so he may understand and will not do it again

    All the best

    Re: Mathematics teacher giving very harsh punishment to the students

    hello,
    as you said he is your senior member better you tell her about the situation to your principal.
    say your principal about the situation and show him how she bet them by showing the children so that he would understand it and he may take decision regarding it.
    you may suggests some tips for the students s o that they should not do any misbehavior things in the class while the teacher is in the class.ask them to be calm and be quite.
    you may talk to your faculty what decision should be taken on this regard so that the same thing you may say to your boss.
    thank you...............

    Yes you will have talk to the mathematics teacher personally and that too at the earliest else this would turn into a big problem .
    But you will have to take a very rapid action soon else if any child would complaint against this act then parents would swarm at your school and even may place a complaint of the corporal punishment and in that case you and school would have to bear a heavy charge and lot insult!
    so take an action and talk to her please moreover this is a heinous act and every body must oppose it.

    Re: Mathematics teacher giving very harsh punishment to the students

    hi dear guest !!!
    you are the class teacher of that class.so it is your duty to solve their academic problems as well as another problem.
    it is very shameful as well as remarkable that a 3 standard student is punished in this manner.
    it is also against the law.
    if students are doing the mistake in that case also teacher are not allowed to punish physically.it is against the law.
    if the teacher is very much senior still you should talk to the principal of the school regarding this.
    if they are not doing this then you should take the help of police.
    thank you !!!
