I Hated SchoolWhen I attended school in the 1960 s every teacher had a XH Lochgelly Tawse and as we had about 8 periods in a day,then it was possible to get it in each Class. I used to get it at least twice a day often 6 of the best. But I deserved it as i never payed attention. But the best Teacher at giving it was the Headmaster who I was sent to every week for playing truant and he always gave 6 very hard strokes. I deserved it and certainly would not like being at school now with no discipline.
