The punishments made me hate school/learning.
I remember, standing on the teachers desk lift up the trouser and a steel ruler smack on the calf muscles a couple of times.
I remember when making the best drawing that i could my art teacher threw my book accross the room because it was useless to him.
I remember copying my friends homework in a different class and the teacher found out and she slapped me on the face a couple of time and i tried to hide my face so she kept smacking me on the back of my neck.
I remember another lady teacher holding the steel ruler sideways and we had to put our knuckles out for them to smack.
I hated school. I stopped concentrating in class when i was in grade 3.
Thank God, in grade 6 I moved to a different country where they didn't hit children in school.
