In the Dark

A teacher deals with a cheating student. By a new writer to us

By Veronica Proctor

The disciplinary code of Charling School states that the administration of corporal punishment for male students will be on the trousers, on the buttocks, applied with a cane to a maximum of six strokes. In times past, the cane could be administered to underwear and sometimes even the naked buttocks of the young students. Now, in the case of the boys, the person administering the cane is a teacher designated by the Headmistress.

As for female students, apart from ordering lines or detention, the strap is established as the only instrument of punishment, applied to the palms of the hands, maximum two strokes on each, and inflicted by the Headmistress exclusively.
