It's just a day after the learners resumed from half term. The learners are currently in their first term after the school calendar was altered with due to the outbreak of covid-19.
Days earlier the ministry of education did away with corporal punishment in all schools. This is after there was an outcry from the parents and guardians about excessive punishment from teachers. Some teachers had gone to an extent of punishing learners where some of the lives were claimed due to excessive punishment.
Today parents, guardians and kenyans at large are seeking for justice after a photo of some learners started trending online. It was clear that three pupils were tied together in a tree as a form of punishment. This incident happened in a primary school in Nyahururu. The primary school is locally known as "Thiru" primary school near "Mile Nne".
Citizens have asked the people incharge to punish the head teacher of the school and the teachers involved. This are some of the reactions from the citizens.
Do you think it was right for the teacher to punish the learners in that manner? Share you view on this issue.
