The Sindh Education Department has taken proactive action to address the rise in physical assaults on students in educational settings.
As a result, all private schools have adopted a comprehensive ban on the use of corporal punishment.
Ahmed Khan, who is the Additional Director of the Education Department, is in charge of this project.
Ahmed Khan has expressed grave concern over the rising use of corporal punishment in educational settings. He highlighted the department’s unwavering commitment to creating a safe and supportive learning environment.
This restriction, which is included as a requirement in school registration certificates, amply demonstrates the department’s dedication to ensuring the welfare and safety of students.
Rafia Javed, the department’s official spokesperson, is in favor of this action.
Rafia Javed firmly argued that any educational institution found to be in violation of this ban would face legal repercussions.
The primary goals of the department’s vigilance are to ensure that this rule is strictly followed and to hold schools responsible for their behavior.
In response to parent worries, the spokesperson pleaded with parents to report any instances of physical punishment right away.
The legislation from 2005 gives the Education Department the authority to potentially revoke the registration of schools that repeatedly violate this prohibition, underscoring the seriousness with which this issue is being handled.
