Letter to the editor-leather strap

I always love reading letters to the editor and this one was no exception. It made me laugh. The writer talks about the “leather strap” used by teachers to administer “lickings” to those students who mis-behaved in school back in the 1940s and even today in Jamaica. With all the talk recently about the BS going on in school from both students,parents and teachers this letter shows a childlike view on the situation in those days. Again, although the letter discuss a very serious issue.I found it genuinely funny. Click here to read the letter
