Video clip: Ecuador

Classroom belting

With comments by C. Farrell

Two senior schoolboys get the belt

Corporal punishment is supposedly prohibited in Ecuador. However, in this clip we see two students summoned to the front of their class to receive one not-very-hard stroke of the belt each on the seat of their pants.

    There is an atmosphere of fun, and everyone is laughing, including the "culprits". Nevertheless, it is rather intriguing that the very idea of formal posterial chastisement of this sort, even if only as a jocular parody, should come so naturally in a culture where such things are supposed never to have existed.
