According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 31% of Pakistani parents said their child complains of being hit by his/her teacher.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Has your child ever complained of being hit by his/her teacher?” Responding to this, 31% said yes and 69% said no.
It is interesting to note that 33% of parents in rural areas said their child complained of being hit by his/her teacher, compared to 27% of parents in urban areas. A comparison between provinces shows that children complain the most about being hit by their teachers in KPK (74%), followed by Baluchistan (32%), Sindh (23%) and lastly Punjab (22%).
