April 28, 1988 GMT

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) _ A survey of teachers indicates most think they should be allowed to beat mischievous schoolgirls with canes.

Under Malaysian education laws only male schoolchildren can be caned.

The Education Ministry’s survey of 108 teachers at girls-only and coeducational schools showed 64 percent want permission to cane girls.

The ministry made no decision on whether to amend the law.
