The Case for Corporal Punishment.
Ebel, Robert L.
A young child who has not been taught to obey the directives of his parents or his teachers is liable to suffer serious consequences in a sometimes hostile environment. Teacher organizations tend to support retention, or reinstitution, of the possibility of using corporal punishment as one means of correction or control. Ultimately, the case for or against corporal punishment must rest on the effect it has on pupil achievement of whatever goals society has set for its schools. (Author/MLF)
