Should students be allowed to hit teachers?

No definitely not. I came from an era where teacher could cane students over the hands. I coped it several times myself. and at no time did I feel the punishment justified the crime. Allowing frustrated teachers to vent their anger on children with acts of violence is just plain wrong. It is wrong in the same way as corporal punishment would be for adults. I am not particularly against a parent giving a small child a small slap on the back side but I think teachers hitting kids is an affront on both the teachers and the child's human rights and dignity. If we are not allowed to hit prisoners in prison we should treat our children with the same consideration.teachers shouldn't be allowed to hit students but they can they only took the cane away because they thought it was too harsh Should teachers be allowed to hit students?Of course not, nor are they allowed to hit students. They are however, allowed to 'correct' students. That is, if a student requires physical guidance to keep themselves or others safe, teachers are allowed to adminster physical correction, much as a parent would.
