Okukuseku, you are definitely off out of your mind. Why should the housemaster be beaten up? I am a Christian, I attended a school affiliated with the Methodist Church and I sure skipped some church services even though I knew darn well that I would be punished if I was caught. Attending church services was the rule in the school. I had a number of classmates who were Muslims and they were not exempted. When they asked for exemption, the headmaster told them they knew they had freely chosen to attend a school that was affiliated with the Christian faith and therefore they had to comply with the rules in the school. What the hell do you think would happen if students could just flout school rules? In fact are we not seeing such disregard for rules in Ghana now? yes, I ran away from housemasters whenever I knew I had flouted some rule and would be punished if caught. But I would gladly have accepted any punishment than jump to my death. In fact I got my but whipped when I was in Form Five for skipping morning prayer one day. If it is of any interest to you, I completed form five in 1960. Yes, there was more discipline in secondary schools then. Even sixth formers had authority to punish junior boys if they broke any rules. I sure did my fair share of punishments. And I am no worse for it now. In fact I think those punishments instilled some discipline in me. I weep for Ghana and the unruly future that you seem to be advocating for. Beat up the housemaster indeed! I didn't know you could be so dumb!
