Corporal Punishment and Student Outcomes in Rural Schools
Han, Seunghee
Educational Research for Policy and Practice, v13 n3 p221-231 Oct 2014
This study examined the effects of corporal punishment on student outcomes in rural schools by analyzing 1,067 samples from the School Survey on Crime and Safety 2007-2008. Results of descriptive statistics and multivariate regression analyses indicated that schools with corporal punishment may decrease students' violent behaviors and increase the attendance rate, yet those schools may have more student insubordination incidents and fewer students with academic aspirations than schools without corporal punishment. All the associations in the results remained after controlling for school background characteristics. Rural school leaders should consider whether corporal punishment maximizes students' educational benefits.
