In Vol 28#16 of Monday Paper, in the report on Emeritus Professor Peter Kallaway's public lecture, Education– What is to be done?, we reported that "Kallaway also called for a return to corporal punishment". This was not the case. Here is the correct quote: "If the teacher is deprived of the means of enforcing physical discipline in big, overcrowded classes, and does not have or is not given the means to promote positive learning, there is every chance of an explosive mix." We apologise for the misunderstanding, and for any embarrassment caused.
