I was at school during the 60's when classroom sizes were well excess of 30 pupils and there was no such thing as support teachers. However, teachers were able to control such large classes because they were able to use reasonable physical punishment as a deterrent to bad behaviour. Therefore the Education Department could make savings by removing the support teachers and reintroducing the cane.

Why is this idea important?

Because support teachers are a luxury and an unnecessary burden on the Education budget.

If teachers were able to use reasonable physical punishment as a deterrent then the use of support teachers would be redundant.
