    Quote from SMH (Sydney Morning Herald) today

    "DAMAGES APPEAL
    Strapped man stripped of $2.5m payout
    A man awarded more than $2.5 million earlier this year for being strapped at school 17 years ago was today stripped of his payout. The NSW Court of Appeal today ordered a new trial on how much Paul Hogan should get."

    I'm still in school.

    It's outlawed except in catholic schools with parental permission.

    Corporal punishment =

    it's outlawed almost everywhere now, thank god that little piece of barbarism has gone the way of other misguided things they did at schools in the past. When i first started, they even punished me for being left-handed and tried to re-train me.

    too long ago to tell you. I don't want to have to put up with another round of 'old fart' jokes.
    But as a hint, ballpoint pens were still a novelty and a tool for lazy writers (according to our teachers)

    and no i never learnt.

    I had corporal punishment till the middle of high school. It was/still is a good thing. Detention doesn't work. At all.

    When the system was suspended you could see the drop in discipline. Would you as junior in highschool even consider to tell a senior to go f*** himself after being asked to straighten his tie.

    I also heard that teachers would tie your left hand behind your back and make you write with your right.

    If my research proves right, ball point pens were first sold in 1945.

    Hmmm, from your last line, I'd say you when to school around the late 40s, but my money's on the 50s/60s.

    I had to deal with punishment in school up until 10th grade... not a biggie. I never did anything bad.

    pertaining the left hand/right hand issue, I guess I was a mystery to my teachers. I wrote right handed, drew left handed. and when I got to college, I freaked out my german teacher by writing english with my right hand, and german with my left hand at the same time.

    they never tied my hand behind my back, just whacked me on the knuckles with a ruler.
    As for your guess....it wasn't the 40's (not even born then as much as others would have you believe otherwise) your money is safe.

    In terms of punishment, I was never really in any trouble at school, I had a total of one days detention throughout my school life and no, the strap or caning was not permitted.

    Did anyone see the Ali G episode where he interviewed Sir Rhodes Boyson..? <ali>you was caned in school..respect..</ali>

    LOL, I just kept my head down and got on with school, It kinda bored me to be honest so I didn't get involved in anything. I did get thrown off my A Level economics course with 3 months left to the exam but the teacher was a jackass and this just gave me more time to go bowling

    No corporal punishment at the school I attended (the worst that would happen was a bit of pointed sarcasm), but discipline was not a problem -- it was all about respect. The staff made it clear that they wouldn't take any crap, and anyone who tried to test that assertion soon found themselves excluded from school. Repeat offenders were excluded permanently. There was almost no bullying, little in the way of conflict between teachers and pupils, and almost no alcohol or drug problems (two incidents in the six years I was there).

    Some might say that this system 'failed' any person who was excluded. But you go to school to learn and if you're unable to fit into that regimen, then not only are you spoiling things for yourself but you're also potentially a disruptive influence on others.

    I have to admit that at the time I found the school rules frustrating but with hindsight I realise that I got a far better education as a result.

    We were too scared to do anything bad.
    A couple of my friends at school got the strap.....the teacher(Mr Christian) would lay 3 pieces of chalk across your palm and proceed to turn them to powder. Scary man.
    I was put on the "hot seat" a few times. It was outside the principals office and any teacher that felt like it could pay out on you.

    We had a teacher that was 7 foot tall that used a broomstick. The marks would sit 4-6 weeks on your butt.
