Suffer the Students.
A child died as a result of getting slapped by his teacher. Boy am I glad that in all those times I got smacked around by my Arabic teacher that it never got THAT bad. I wish all countries would abandon the idea that smacking kids around in the classroom is a great way to drive a point home. God knows I'm tempted at times, but then reason has the nasty habit of taking over, as well as that whole "I'm the adult, he/she is the irrational bag of hormones and inexperience" philosophy.
