The Tawse In Scottish Schools To 1975People think that the tawse is all fiction!!! Its not!!! Every teacher in Scotland had at least one tawse (belt as we called it) . They came in different lenghths, thicknesses and with either 2 or 3 tails.
THese were used evey day on someone in my class including me. Girls wer no exceptio. They were belted almost as often as the boys. These were in front of the class for everyone else to see.It was always very exciting to watch
but not so to receive!!!!!
