An Egyptian court has sentenced math teacher Haitham Nabeel Abdelhamid, 23, to six years after he beat Islam Amr Badr, 11, for not completing his homework. The boy died.
The teacher took the boy outside the classroom and hit him violently in the stomach. The boy fainted and later died.
Despite the low sentence, it is viewed as progress to have a prosecution at all in a country where beating children in school is permissible. Egypt is also credited this year with major strides in the incorporation of women into government and the law, here. In this region, that is no small achievement.

I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but
good topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding
more. Thanks for magnificent information I was looking for this information for
I hope this evil peice of S**t gets beaten to death in prison, but not before being raped and knocked around a few times. This is where the thing of trying to be forgiving falls apart. As for the Egyptian law – what kind of a warped system is it that allows adults not just to use corporal punishment but to beat kids up in whatever fashion they see fit. I suppose if this kid had survived after being rushed to hospital fighting for his life the teacher would still be teaching, still beating up small children and we would never have heard a thing about it.
I knew some nuns who I thought were a little brutal in their discipline, but they pale in comparison to this Egyptian child murderer. How can you beat a child to death for any alleged infraction and only get a slap on the wrist?
Maybe we’ve misunderstood all this time: Could “No Child Left Behind” it instead be a reference to the infantry maxim: “never leave a live enemy behind you”?
Attrition is the only strategy that could make the “No Child Left Behind” program work.
