In this episode, we discuss corporal punishment in schools with Robert Omwa from Kenya. Robert is a certified positive discipline coach and teacher. He was caned in school by his teachers and used to cane his pupils as a teacher, until something happened! He now advocates for an end to corporal punishment in schools in Africa, reaching over 10,000 teachers with his message and training and receiving a state award (Head of School Commendation) from former president Uhuru Kenyatta for his advocacy work. Robert shares insightful examples from his work and critically analyses major debates on corporal punishment while making a case for a shift to positive discipline.
