So a ruler to the hand is shocking and worth arresting? I remember being paddled!! and oh good lord what if my dad found out I was messing up in school, I'd get the belt. Come on people, I admit what he did was probably illegal(I am not familiar with laws in Egypt) but arent we blowing this a little out of proportion?? I think disciplining kids is a good thing as long as it doesnt cross the line into abuse. I know we have all seen kids that didnt get disciplined and seen how they act. Maybe it's just me but I wasnt shocked nor appalled.
This review suggests that it is possible that there are benefits to nonabusive physical punishment for African-American children.

Honestly I had no idea that so many members replying here could represent such a large population of corporal punishment's psychologically abused. I don't think I read a single reply of someone saying, "...I was never beaten or spanked as a child but I would do it to my kids in a heartbeat. That guy did a great job conveying his message." THAT speaks volumes to me. My heart hurts right now. OW.

Maybe the kids were failing in class or something, idk, but it didn't look bad at all to me.
It was humiliating for those children...and you can see they are all very scared to have their turn.
can you imagine every day..how they live in fear for school.
What you said above shows a lot about you..I really hope you don't have children...
I saw another vidio yesterday from the same part of the world with the police..pulling at a young girls hair,and taunting her. I noticed in this video that the girls got it worse.
Damn it this world is screwed up..makes me want to just go fight these a***holes,and take them all out. Instead I have just sit here and cry, wondering why a loving God could stand by and watch so much torture (most much worse) being done to the most innocent ,and vulnerable in our world.
It gets really hard to deal with the sadness ,and anger I have inside when I see crap like this.
