A Lesson Learned as a Teacher's Helper
Northington Purdie, Cynthia
Multicultural Perspectives, v16 n2 p110-112 2014
The practice of paddling students for misbehavior remains legal in 19 states. The practice was quite prevalent in the mid-to late-20th century and was implemented in order to instill fear in students, so that they would behave properly. To public school students, this was as normal as recess. To an observer with no former frame of reference, however, it provided a gateway to a greater understanding of discipline, compliance, and classroom management.
