The Shame of Shaming
Goodman, Joan F.
Phi Delta Kappan, v99 n2 p26-31 Oct 2017
Historically, public schools have often used shaming techniques to discipline students, even though researchers have found shaming to be not just an ineffective means of curtailing misbehavior, but, more important, psychologically harmful to children. The author reviewed policy documents from nine leading charter management organizations and found that they provide official support for specific disciplinary practices that entail shaming.
