And Sensei endorses caning ?

Only for my own children, not for my students. There is a reason why my title was changed from Head of Discipline to Head of Pastoral Care and Pupil Welfare when I took over.

ps. In your shoes I think I might be more concerned about the alleged lack of critical thinking ability that is engendered in pupils in SG. That's perhaps far more damaging than a teacher trying to help a pupil from going completely off the rails via [the possible extreme of] corporal punishment.

Caning is one of the contributors to an overall culture of suppression of the individuals and critical thinking. If you do not toe the line, we will make sure you pay for it. And we gonna use force and coercion until you submit to our demands! It is inherently vengeful in nature.
