that medieval practice was banned in schools in the UK in 1987
except for public schools where it was banned in 1998 so Ive never had any first hand experience with the cane or any other forms of corporal punishment

Hell yeah...it sucked haha. One thing I learned was don't even think of trying to pick out a little switch, or one with few thorns...that pissed them off even more haha.

When I was little and went to public school (Kindergarten and 1st Grade) I remember they could paddle/spank you...I think they still can in Alabama, not really sure..
