When punishment goes seriously wrong

Well in my school people got detention, or expelled at a push, but in Malaysia the punishment for being caught with a cigarette in your locker goes  a bit further. A boy was forced by his English teacher to smoke 42 cigarettes in 4 hours.Afterwards, the boy had to be hospitalised.( If I had been his parents, the teacher would have to have been hospitalised also…….).

Commenting on the incident, the school principal said:

” This doesn’t happen often.”

Well hallelujah. Maybe Mr Balls could offer some in-house training?

Ah well, as Oscar Wilde once said…………. ”Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.”
