Corporal punishment in schools.
Hunt, Sommer B.
MetadataShow full item record
This study was done on corporal punishment in US schools because it has been a continuous controversy in education. Corporal punishment in schools is meant to inflict pain as a consequence of bad behavior. There are many different methods used but the most common is using a wooden paddle to swat or give licks to the student’s buttocks. Corporal punishment is still legal in 19 states. I thoroughly compared six different elementary school discipline policies that I randomly selected in six different counties in Mississippi and in Florida. I wanted to investigate how corporal punishment differs in a waiver state verses a non-waiver state. The counties in Mississippi include Alcorn, Attala, Benton, Carroll, Itawamba and DeSoto. The Florida counties include Baker, Bay, Marion, Hamilton, Holmes and Levy.
