You’re correct about teachers

Dear Editor,

Re: Corporal punishment 

Don’t you worry Mr. Editor, the U.N. the sovereign ruler of Samoa will overrule our government with their child’s right and remove parental authority. 

But you are correct the teachers are there to teach English, Math, Science, and other educational subjects, but behavioral and moral code should be taught at home. 

Discipline therefore should be a home schooling that affect public schools. 

If the student is sent home from school as punishment, then the parent should really raise and apply the rod, not lightly or they would be just provoking their children to wrath, but heavy enough that they don’t appreciate the feeling and don’t want to feel it again.

That way when they go back to school they don’t want to be sent back home again as punishment. 

When people think they are smarter and know more than God then we are in trouble and can’t find a solution to these problems. 

We try to follow other countries rules and abandon our foundation but those other countries structures don’t fit in our foundation now our structure which has been built by other’s house plan is unstable.

Time to go back to basics.
