October 1997
21st Century;Oct97, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p11
The author discusses her views on corporal punishment in U.S. schools. She comments that punishments in schools today need improvement. She says that corporal punishment is the right form of discipline for students who are hard to control. She also adds that those who believe that corporal punishment is an abusive behavior must realize that if the students are raised in a right manner in the first place, the schools would not have to discipline them and that if children behaved the way they should, corporal punishment then, would not be an issue.
