The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) wants the Ministry of Education to allow the use of physical punishment so as to ensure more immediate compliant behavior in children.
This follows questions over the motives behind the fires and education stakeholders proposing drastic measures to curb indiscipline trend.
Busia Branch Secretary-General Morphat Okisai, says learners found guilty of indiscipline should be suspended and expelled from school in order to serve as an example to the rest.
He says, learning institutions must be protected from being razed down at all costs to prevent education in the country from being jeopardized by a few “bad elements” in society.
He wants the ministry to find a long-lasting solution, reiterating that granting mid-term breaks to students is not a remedy to school unrest.
