This Will Hurt You More Than It Hurts Me

I've never been a supporter of corporal punishment in schools, but you know what? I might yet be persuaded:

The Tanzania Teachers' Union is taking legal action after 19 primary school teachers were given the cane.

The teachers were caned by a police officer in front of their pupils after an investigation into poor exam results at three schools.

The report blamed teachers for being late or not showing up for work and not teaching the official syllabus.

Just imagine how much fun the NUT conference would be if it featured delegates complaining that they had been flogged in the last year.
