Probability of Corporal Punishment: Lack of Resources and Vulnerable Students
Han, Seunghee
Journal of Educational Research, v104 n6 p420-430 2011
The author examined corporal punishment practices in the United States based on data from 362 public school principals where corporal punishment is available. Results from multiple regression analyses show that schools with multiple student violence prevention programs and teacher training programs had fewer possibilities of use corporal punishment, whereas schools that served a greater percentage of ethnic minority students and special education students had a 2.1 times greater and a 1.8 times greater likelihood of use corporal punishment, after controlling for students' problem behavior and school characteristics. Policy implications for an equal implementation of corporal punishment practice were offered. (Contains 4 tables.)
