I REFER to the letter “Pupil punched for not finishing homework,” (The Star, Feb 7). I would like to share my views as a fellow victim who suffered the same abuse 36 years ago and continues to suffer from its effects.

I can personally attest that the damage done by any form of physical abuse by a teacher or any perpetrator is not just physical but also emotional and psychological.
