The Sindh Education Department has taken strong action to reduce the rise in physical assaults on kids in educational settings.
As a result, all private schools have adopted a thorough ban on the use of corporal punishment.

Ahmed Khan has expressed grave concern over the rising use of corporal punishment in educational settings.
Sindh Education Department Commitment
He highlighted the department’s consistent commitment to creating a safe and supportive learning environment.
This restriction, which is included as a requirement in school registration certificates, amply indicates the department’s dedication to ensuring the welfare and safety of pupils.
Rafia Javed, the department’s official spokesman, is in favor of this action.
Legal Action Against Violators
Rafia Javed firmly argued that any educational institution found to be in violation of this ban will face legal consequences.
The primary goals of the department’s vigilance are to ensure that this rule is strictly followed and to hold schools responsible for their behavior.
In response to parent worries, the spokesman urged with parents to report any instances of physical punishment right away.
The legislation from 2005 gives the Education Department the right to potentially withdraw the registration of institutions that repeatedly violate this rule, highlighting the seriousness with which this matter is being treated.
