Why Punishment Doesn't Work.
Henley, Martin
Principal, v77 n2 p45-46 Nov 1997
Many youngsters need help in learning to deal with their anger, despair, and frustrations. Punishment forces compliance, rather than encouraging students to take responsibility for their own behavior. Punishment works best when used occasionally and when behavior rules and guidelines have been developed with student input. Routine use of punishment turns teachers and students into adversaries.
