About this deal

The master making the allegations at first refused to go to the Home Office because, he said, he feared an inquiry could lead to the dismissal of a headmaster who was merely typical of many others. On balance, as there was really no control over these horrible little creatures who should never have been let anywhere near kids, it was a bad thing. My first stroke clearly hurt him and his body wanted to demonstrate just how much pain he felt, but he managed to control himself. He beat Mike and me with a swagger stick, one of those things which British officers would tuck under their arm and … well, swagger about with.

He meant that despite the landslide victory for the New Democrats party in last year’s election and tits clear manifesto pledge to bring back corporal punishment there were still some who disagreed with the move. He had one name, then it changed to something completely different for 2 pages and then it changed back again! The only time I was ever caned was for something I didn't do - first year of senior school, not under the junior school head - and unlike the slipper, that really did hurt. This is a companion piece to the story Twice In One Day ( read it here ) which is a diary entry made by a sixth-form grammar school boy in 1964 recounting how he and two pals were caned for the first time by their headmaster. If, for example, you saw Cummings in the street not wearing school uniform you could easily take him for a young office worker or as an undergraduate student in his early twenties.Elliott then testified that the lad had been reported seven or eight times recently and twice he had been let off by the headmaster although he deserved punishment. Mother suffers from "nervous depression" and father died -- according to mother -- "after chasing" the boy and his sister when they disobeyed him. He changed his mind after talking things over with his wife and decided "the interests of the boys must come first.

According to a remand home report the situation between the boy and his mother's employer is "apparently so explosive that it was deemed necessary to remove him at the first opportunity. This was on those occasions when he was caning me, and I had to bend down in his study to receive “six of the best” (six strokes) or, more rarely, three of the best – I was a rather naughty boy. Of the 109 schools with boarders for which the information was provided (excluding the three schools where no one could administer corporal punishment), in 38 schools it was used by the masters on less than twenty occasions, but in 12 schools it was used on more than 100 occasions, and in four of these the frequency exceeded 350. Horrible place staffed with the usual array of psycho teachers and a cane happy headmaster who loved to give small boys a good thrashing.It is not my wish to cause pain unnecessarily, but rather to guide these young men towards a path of responsibility and respect for authority. Many of the young people these approved schools were intended to help are now dealt with in other ways -- through the probation service, attendance centres or detention centres. These young men must learn that their actions had repercussions, and six hard strokes of the cane would leave a lasting impression. They weren't pleasant times, some of the teachers were seriously nasty and would try to rule by shouting and screaming at the tops of their voices, kicking chairs and tables, pushing kids around, beating them on the back. One ritual that the teachers on duty carried out was to inspect whether the boys and girls looked the part, you know, as true ambassadors of a school whose motto was “discipline and hard work for a better future.

I was always the one gazing out of the window because watching the birds or someone mow the grass was much more interesting than learning algebra. As I contemplated administering the caning, I found myself torn between the belief in the efficacy of such measures and a lingering discomfort with the act itself. And they saw a man attack another claiming that he had beaten and bullied him as a kid and completely lose it so that they thought he might kill the victim.I had six very well-defined stripes across my backside, they had risen to wheals and although the pain had eased completely by this time, I could still reignite the pain if I touched my bottom. I’m a fit man and play football regularly but I found it a strain on the calf muscles to stay in position. As for the content, I appreciate it is supposed to be set in times gone by, when attitudes and behaviours were different to today’s. Another aspect of the authority given to senior boys is that, in many of the schools, certain boys are allowed to administer corporal punishment. However, the book mainly describes in-depth recurring accounts of school children being punished by spanking.

In the survey, information was obtained not only about whether any boy is empowered to administer corporal punishment but also whether any of the masters can do so.At secondary school canings were frequent, mainly by the headmaster and a handful of other sadistic teachers.
