    Even if caning was allowed

    Does the sentence below sound grammatical enough? The sentence is written with if conditional.

    Even if caning was allowed, the school should (have) take the (the or a) pupil to a clinic after having been caned for fear of infection such as this one. (This s just a general point of view with what if).

    Re: Even if caning was allowed

    If caning were not allowed, they wouldn't be taking the pupil to a clinic, so the logic underlying the sentence is flawed.
