Pink Floyd’s 1979 “Another Brick in the Wall” voices the lacks of freedom, creativity, and individuality in students within the school system. Along with the absence of students’ individuality, Roger Waters, the writer of this infamous song, argues not only are education systems poor, they display an overbearing authoritarian role in addition.

But the punishment in the home environment still needs to be considered. In the case S v Williams and Others5 the court held that the “deliberate infliction of physical pain on the person of the accused offends societies notions of decency and is a direct invasion of the right which every person has to human dignity.” This case found that where authority is used and where it legitimises violence is inconsistent with the values of the Constitution.
