Injured girl caned, becomes paralyzed

Posted by jtsmyth8 on July 15, 2008

A teacher in Kuala Klawang who caned a student might not have known that the students had hurt her back in a fall.

As a result of the caning, Nurlieyana Nazran, 17, now cannot walk.

She is being warded at the Tuanku Jaafar Hospital in Seremban.

“Due to the student’s injury, she was absent from school for some time. So it could be that the teacher was unaware that the student had an injury to her lower back,” state education director Abdullah Mohamad said yesterday.

“I understand that this teacher is known to be strict and wanted all her students to excel in their coming Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia examination.”

Abdullah promised a full investigation into the Thursday incident. (story)
