According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 6% of parents said their child has been hit so hard by his/her teacher that he/she has been injured, 26% said the beating resulted in a fractured arm/hand.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Has your child been beaten so severely that he/she was injured?” Responding to this, 6% said yes and 92% said no. However, 2% did not give a response. This question was only asked from parents who said their child had complained of being hit by his/her teacher.
The respondents were then asked “What kind of injury occurred to the child?” Responding to this, 26% said fractured arm/hand, 63% said there were too many injuries, 4% said others and 7% did not give a response.
