The report, "'I Don't Want My Child to Be Beaten': Corporal Punishment in Lebanon's Schools," finds that children suffer from corporal punishment at school because of a lack of accountability for the abusers.

(Beirut) - Lebanon's ban on school staff hitting, verbally abusing, or otherwise inflicting pain on schoolchildren in the name of discipline is often disregarded.

The 64-page report, "'I Don't Want My Child to Be Beaten': Corporal Punishment in Lebanon's Schools," finds that children suffer from corporal punishment at school because of a lack of accountability for the abusers. Human Rights Watch said that Lebanon should enforce a longstanding ban on corporal punishment and proposed ways in which the Education Ministry, with support from international donors, can end the abuse.
