Teens in Beijing who are found bullying could face hard labour as punishment.
Students detained for bullying in schools in the Chinese capital will have to undergo a form of community service with teachers deciding on whether they should return to the classroom following their punishment.
14 students involved in bullying cases have been involved in the trial so far including one that had been handed a one year and ten month 'sentence'.
The students range from 15 to 17 years old and had been detained for bullying.
They started the week trial on September 4.
After they have finished the hard labour their schools will decide whether to accept them back or expel them.
Not hard labour at all but a good program. SKorea needs it desperately. Kids bully cases are intense there.
We had Borstal here once upon a time. Everything done at double time.every minute of the day taken care of. That soon sorted the majority of trouble makers out.
We need this treatment for bullies overhear. It appears that the bullied are the ones punished.
But will it solve it....YES. On the other hand Britain loves the suspended sentence rule and half sentences for good behaviour. Get tough and stop listening to all the do gooders.
We need to do the same over here not just with bullies but also prisoner's.
Well done now do it here
They got the right idea!
We used to have corrective establishments for teenagers these were called Borstals and they were pretty effective not many wanted to go back. What happened to them?
One child policy has created many little emperors. Even at my son's school there is a problem with bullying from some of the overseas Chinese pupils.
That's the spirit! Pretty please can we have this in th UK? When will any government in the UK get tough......??
Good this type off thing to happen there.
Well done them.
Well done you lot can't come soon enough over here .....
What a great way to deal with these horrible people. I would vote for anyone doing the same in this country.
What a good idea we could do with a punishment regime like that here.
We need something similar in place here conduct has been dropping for a while now
Well done China sets an example for us all
fantastic idea !!! well done China !!!

We need that or we need to prosecute the parents

Totally agree unfortunately in this country prisoners can't even be sentenced to hard labour!!!!!
that;s the ONLY way to stop them i support you.
We used to have common sense and a bit of respect for other people. When that failed there was punishment. . Then we let the lefties take over and now we have generations of snowflakes who think they are entitled to do as they please and legions of lawyers who make money defending criminals.
Different approach to the UK where nothing is done
They do not mess around in China but it does work.
oh dear could you imagine the response from modern day parents of our snowflakes..
What a joke45
Good on you china break the bad habits before they start. Make them work in care homes and learn some Passion
Let's bring it over here
Political internment starts young in china sniffing out opposition from childhood ensures no change will take place . This is not about bullies .
Might be something for consideration in the UK?
me from nowhere.
What an excellent idea hard labour for bullying but sadly in the UK they are more concerned about kids uniforms being the wrong shade of blue or girls skirts one inch to short .
I like it! Bet the bullying numbers drop like a stone.
it seems bullies in this country are basically patted on the back and congratulated. Their victims are ignored by the schools and the authorities. The schools are only interested in their good OFSTED reports to care what happens to victims of bullying. It's about time punishments fitted the crimes in schools. Well done China!
........ not many elite lefty globalists there ..... a handicap that will bring this country down.........
We need to do the same when bullies get away with it they just keep getting meaner
The thinker -> Samkit
The problem is that when a victim retaliates people complain when they should have curbed the problem.

Should be happening everywhere.

Approved schools and the birch should be the norm for bullies.
Good stuff! Not a leftie loony country.
