Ahmed explained that the decision followed the beating of some students of GSS, Nassarawa-Eggon, the video of which had gone viral in the social media.
He said, “We have constituted a committee to investigate the matter and report to the ministry in the next one week to enable the ministry to take appropriate action.
“Already, three staff members of the school including the Principal have been given a one-month suspension over their involvement in the corporal punishment pending the report of the committee set up by the ministry.”
He explained that the ministry had also written to all public schools informing their managements of the ban on corporal punishment.
He further warned teachers meting out corporal punishment to students to desist “as anyone caught would face disciplinary action.”
The education commissioner stated that “even if teachers would want to punish students for any offence, it should be minor punishment.”
He added that the government would continue to respond to the challenges facing the education sector in the state.
When our correspondent visited the school, the suspended school officials were not on duty, but it was gathered that the management had decided to stop punishing students who resumed late to avoid sanctions.
