Sir: This week we have heard of the possibility of a return to corporal punishment in schools. The Government has also announced that it is in favour of parent-school contracts, making parents more responsible for the behaviour of their children during school hours. Why not take these two proposals a natural step further and cane parents whose children breach these contracts?
