The bill provides that any parent, ascendant, teacher, or guardian, who uses corporal punishment, whether verbal, physical, mental or psychological, can be punished under the law.

House Bill 682 also protects students from abusive punishments from teachers and other academic authorities, regardless of when or where corporal punishment was executed.

If approved, the bill can send the guilty to jail.

---------------------

In Philippines, such laws are only paper-work, nobody can ever execute them among the ordinary people.

And this is the other side, millions of children without sufficient food.

There are now about 2 million streetchildren in the Philippines.

Malnutrition problem 'serious'

WHILE many of them have ideal weights, a significant percentage of elementary schoolchildren are still underweight.

Department of Education (DepEd) 7 data collected last year showed that 22.59 percent of Central Visayas’ elementary schoolchildren were malnourished.

.....

Grace Espos, a DepEd 7 nutritionist, attributed the high percentage of underweight schoolchildren mostly to their families economic status.

This is the other side of the law in UK/EU.

I will visit Philippines/Cebu again this coming week.

As I said in the other thread, I have no problems with my Filipina fostergirl there.

She is always grateful, that she has enough to eat, can go to school, and has medical insurance and can live in a house.

If you have problems with children in UK/EU send them for a few weeks to Philippines - mosquitos and malaria/dengue-fever and street-children and food-shortage - or send them during winter to a village in China.

There will be no UK/EU discipline discussion anymore, as considered to be pointless or baseless.

      Well...desire is subjective, isn't it? Anyway, if you don't believe me, just take a look on youtube...lots of polyglots learning languages on the web, without leaving their home. It's true, though, that people learn in different ways...and some ways are better than others, depending on who you ask.

      Desire doesn't last long, I'm afraid, and requires little vocabulary

      People learn online and at home, all of the time. With VoIP programs like Skype, that allow you to speak with native speakers while practicing your target language, there's no reason why someone cannot learn if they really have the desire to.

      I doubt that you can learn a language online actually. It is difficult enough when in contact with the people speaking the language you want to learn.

      Just found a site that looks promising: http://www.memrise.com Offering more than just languages, they also have memory cards that can be created and/or shared that make use of keyword method and mnemonics for better memorization.
