Discipline with Dignity

Synopsis
After former teacher Devendra Ale began to work with CVICT, an organisation helping to rehabilite victims of torture from Burma and Nepal, he began to campaign against the use of corporal punishment in Nepalese schools. The film contrasts the behaviour of children in schools where beating continues with schools where corporal punishment has been outlawed.
