I believe that this law must be passed. When people get hit, it can result in shock, even death in rare cases. It causes trauma for the students, and harms them physically and psychologically. It's also because when people get mad, they get stupid because the blood leaves their brain, and goes to the limbs, so they can't think, or don't even care, so they just think of revenge by hitting. Yes, they do feel hatred, and it violates students rights indeed. I am in extraordinary favor of this law being passed as soon as possible. Plus, the students may become violent when they grow up. I understand that sometimes students may be very disobedient, but hitting is so not the solution, but it worsens the situation. A psychologist is the best thing, in which they can convince students to obey. I hope that this will convince those who think hitting is necessary.
