Teaching is an important profession because teachers have teaching assignments while educating students, so that students are educated both academically and morally. As professionals, teachers have the rights and obligations listed in Act No. 14 of 2005 concerning Teachers and Lecturers, one of the right being freedom giving sanctioning to students. In reality, there are several cases where teachers are prosecuted by parents when applying sanctions in order to educate students.
