Corporal Punishment in American Education: Readings in History, Practice, and Alternatives.
Hyman, Irwin A., Ed; Wise, James H., Ed.
Virtually all of the essays in this collection reach the conclusion that corporal punishment in the schools is counterproductive. The book is organized into sections presenting historical, psychological, and legal perspectives on this subject, as well as case studies, opinion surveys, and the results of research. Rational alternatives to the use of physical punishment are explored. (JD)
