Care or Neglect?: Corporal Discipline Reform in a Rural Moroccan Classroom
El Ouardani, Christine Nutter
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v49 n2 p129-145 Jun 2018
I examine parent, student, and teacher reactions in a rural Moroccan village to a national ban on corporal punishment in schools. I argue that although the ban has largely been ignored in the local primary school, talk about acts of corporal punishment are used to make claims about the relationship between rural citizen and state as represented by the teachers because of the way in which these practices index care and authority.
