Addressing a Save the Children’s workshop in Ho Chi Minh City, Minh Trang, a teacher in Vo Gap district, drew attendants’ attention with her own story.

“I had never believed in soft discipline on students. I used to see those naïve faces engulfed in fear,” said Trang, who used to work as a teacher of geography and now serves as the deputy principal at Nguyen Van Troi secondary school. “My students later said the image of me with a long, thick stick had dented in their minds.”
