This report discusses a study designed to elicit opinions from Pittsburgh School District principals, parents, and teachers concerning corporal punishment and other disciplinary action. Questionnaires were aimed at (1) determining reactions to current regulations governing the use of corporal punishment, (2) eliciting instances of experience or other arguments that would justify positions either for or against the use of corporal punishment, (3) monitoring opinions concerning the current status of discipline in the schools, and (4) securing additional suggestions relative to disciplinary actions and/or techniques that might prove useful in managing student behavior. The reactions of and the suggestions by the persons sampled are presented. Appendixes contain sample questionnaire forms. (JF)
