About 90 percent of the parents of primary and middle school students in China believe it is natural for teachers to punish students who have made mistakes, according to a survey released on Thursday by China Youth Daily.

Over 70 percent of the 2,005 respondents, 78.1 percent of whom are parents of primary and middle school students, said if teachers do not dare to punish their students, it will not be good for the students because their misconduct will not be corrected in time.

About 72.9 percent of the parents surveyed said it is common that teachers in China do not dare to punish their students nowadays because parents tend to be protective and there are also trust issues.

The difficulty in defining appropriate punishments to prevent physical punishments is another factor that makes the whole matter complicated, said Yang Xiong, director of the youth research institute under the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.

Respondents of the survey believe the most acceptable punishments by teachers are naming and shaming, self-examination and forced standing, and the most unacceptable punishments are insults and beating or hitting.

About 30 percent of the respondents live in first-tier cities in China and around 40 percent live in second-tier cities, according to the report. Those living in county-level cities, towns or rural areas account for about 30 percent.

China's Ministry of Education issued a new regulation in November aiming to grant primary and middle school teachers more room in punishing their students in order to achieve better teaching results.

The regulation, which is still in the phase of soliciting public opinions, lists punishments available to teachers in three categories based on the level of severity of the offense, including naming and shaming, forced standing that lasts no longer than one class session, and suspension of class for no longer than one week.

This is total ridicule for parents to shift responsibility onto the teachers in schools and then to the Education Ministry.

Teachers are also parents. Parents are also teachers. Parents are best teachers to their own children.

Belief in punishment by teachers in school will simply create antagonism between them.

Teachers and students should learn to respect not fear of each other.

Only stupid and back or out of date method that creates problems.

Students are in schools to study and gain knowledge not to be trained to fear and obey.
Only ass, donkey and mule are made to do that way!

The good old days if a teacher was strong enough he will throw you with his desk. and the parents won't even blink an eye about it.
