Corporal Punishment in Schools: Theoretical Discussion and Personal Experience
Alsaif, Omar Abdulaziz
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v8 n1 p19-24 2015
This paper ponders the lasting effects of corporal punishment on students. The paper first considers the benefits and faults of corporal punishment by comparing the experiences of two generations of students and teachers. Starting with the definition of corporal punishment as applied locally and globally, the paper analyzes the reasons for its use, and the rationale of those who defend its legitimacy. The paper concludes with a discussion of the impact of the decision to ban corporal punishment in Saudi Arabian schools on Saudi students and its consequences from the students' perspective.
