Research on Corporal Punishment Effectiveness: Contributions and Limitations.
Hapkiewicz, Walter G.
A review of research literature on corporal punishment reveals that the incidence of corporal punishment has increased over the last twenty years and that it is widely used in some local school districts. Because it is limited by ethical problems, research cannot answer many questions about the direct and indirect effects of corporal punishment. The incidence of corporal punishment and the absence of research evidence suggest that the justification for corporal punishment may come from such areas as religious beliefs and court decisions.
