Should corporal punishment be allowed in school?

Asked by: Sarahthegymnast
  • If they deserve it

    There's a difference betweeen beating and teaching respect. Maybe if this was allowed in schools, kids would learn that more could happen to them if they're bad than "a good talking to." Detention? Oh no. Two day suspension? Boo hoo. A good hit or two on the rear? You'll never see a disrespectful kid change his ways so fast.

    Perhaps the parents would have to sign a paper saying they'll allow it. Still, many parents today raise disrespectful kids because they're too soft to be forceful, so this may not be the best idea.

    Teachers, of course, shouldn't be trusted, as they have bias, but a principal, with the approval of the teacher and other administrators, should be able to administer such a punishment.

  • It helps kids

    It can help the kids gain respect whats going to teach the children respect or maturity if they just get a little detention slip and don't even come back with the slip signed and whats going to teach them respect if they are only in detention for 2 hours just writing 50 standards. This is why Corporal Punishment is the way to go it teaches them not to act bad or they will get a good butt wooping and with the parents permission I think there is really no serious harm right.

  • It should be allowed

    The other means of punishments that are executed in schools for demeanors include suspension from school and detention etcetera. I believe that these types of punishments badly affect the students mentally and morally. These types of punishments create panic in the students as they are exposed to many others. Here is the importance of the punishment like caning or beating where it can be confined only to the teacher and the student or this class at the most. Hence it will bring the realization to the student that the demeanor of his was punishable and never to be repeated and at the same time not mentally harassed.

  • It should be allowed in school.

    It helps to serve as a deterrent. When children see that someone has been whipped for misbehaving, they try not to do similar things in order to avoid getting whipped.
    With corporal punishment, parents are able to bring their children under control. There are certain children who can only be controlled through the use of the cane.
    Corporal punishment helps make children obedient, respectful, polite, etc. In the absence of corporal punishment, children likely go wild.
    Corporal punishment in school makes students take their studies seriously and also helps keep the students under control.
    Authorities are able to instill discipline in children through the use of corporal punishment in schools.It makes very recalcitrant and stubborn children submit to authority because they fear that if they don’t do the right thing they just might be whipped.

  • NO it should not be :(

    MANILA, Philippines -- Education Secretary Armin Luistro on Tuesday reminded school personnel and the public in general that corporal punishment and violence in any form, whether committed by grownups or children, are not allowed in public schools.
    “We reiterate that school personnel who commit such acts are violating the provisions of Batas Pambansa 232 and that they can be held criminally liable including dismissal from the service,” Luistro said.
    Nonetheless, the Department of Education (DepEd) will soon come out with a more comprehensive child protection policy to shield school children from abuse, exploitation, and discrimination, including bullying and other forms of violence in schools.
    To further strengthen the campaign against child abuse in school, DepEd is developing a more comprehensive policy in consultation with teachers and other stakeholders.
    The proposed policy will cover measures to prevent abuses against children in school and the processes to be observed when abuses are committed. It will also include procedures and possible referrals to other concerned agencies.
    Consistent with its priority on child safety in schools and its principle of providing an environment conducive to learning, DepEd expressed its support for Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s anti-bullying bill which seeks to teach anti-bullying in schools and create public awareness of its ill-effects on child development.
    Bullying usually stems from problems at home, DepEd said.
    In 2008, a study by Britain-based Plan International stressed that one in two school children were victims of bullying and other forms of physical and mental abuse. This explained the high drop-out rate in schools as victims try to avoid the abuse by not attending school altogether.
    Another study published in the Asia Pacific Education Review showed that Filipino children have a 57 to 58 percent higher chance of being bullied than school children in other countries. The problem can keep growing as the school-going population increases and poverty levels increase.
    Another law Republic Act 7610 also enumerates acts that constitute child abuse and are therefore considered a criminal offense.
    They include psychological and physical abuse, neglect, cruelty, sexual abuse, and emotional maltreatment; any act by deeds or words that debase, degrade, or demean the worth and dignity of a child; unreasonable deprivation of his basic needs for survival such as food and shelter; as well as failure to immediately give medical treatment to an injured child resulting in serious impairment of his growth, permanent incapacity, or death.
    In view of this, DepEd as early as 2006 issued DepEd Memo 297 Prohibiting Acts Constituting Violations of RA 7610 or the Special Protection of Children Against Child Abuse, Exploitation, and Discrimination Act and the Family Code to set a limit on the substitute parental authority being exercised by some DepEd authorities.
    The order specified that substitute parental authority can only be exercised within the school premises and only to protect and promote the physical, mental, and moral well-being of the students.

  • It would teach respect

    If a student is misbehaving in class a corporal punishment will teach the student to stay on task and to do their work more diligently then before, and it would show them the consequences of not doing their work, plus if a student is not doing their work and they did not get punished it would show them that they can not just play around that they have to do their work

  • That is stupid!!!!

    I am a kid in school and if they allowed that half the kids wouldn't even bother going to school!!!!!!! I think suspension is bad enough and it teaches the kids. It embarrasses them enough that they do it again! It also makes them scared of the teacher's and that would make them work slowly!!

  • Not by the hair of my chiny chin chin.

    As it stands there are three areas that issue corporal punishment. At home, in school (though a very archaic and dying breed), and in justice system.

    Originally corporal punishment, after a long history of human beings physically harming one another, in school was defended when operant learning was defined. Though people have seen this effect for a while, people were able to justify the reason for it. However, corporal punishment, whether as negative reinforcement or punishment, clearly has no place in school.

    The reason why not:
    1. Not every parent wants or believes a non-family member should be striking their child.

    2. Not every child is treated fairly in school. Though we like to think otherwise, teachers are human beings with bias and prejudice that can be inherent or developed for particular students. Thus we then have a physical action that is not equally distributed.

    3. Child abuse can be masked or harder to present if children are struck a at home and school. More importantly the child has no one to trust to cry out towards if they are abused.

    4. Not all punishments work equally so corporal punishment naturally escalates.

    5. Overall it becomes in effective amongst masses and will rise to revolution. When operant learning was discovered it was with 1 mouse in a box. Try hurting a bunch of mice in the same box and you will see an uprising.

    6. Everybody lies and you might punish the wrong kid.

  • Yes, because of the learner s behaviour

    People can't expect teachers to just sit down and watch learners as tney wrong ,by beating the learners they are putting them in the right way. Today learners dont even respect teachers, they backchat and do all kind of wrong things, and you guys just except teachers to sit down and watch, than people start thinking that the school that the certain learners are attending, they are not been taught how to respect

  • Nope. :/ :l

    Corporal punishment should not be allowed in schools. If teachers are allowed to hit the students, the students could become very scared or angry and not show up to school. A majority of the time if a kid misbehaves it is a onetime deal or it was not extreme and the child would not deserve to be hit because of the action. Also some parents may not believe in that sort of punishment. Schools should allow parents to make the call for how their child is punished. Today in this world many schools are anti-bully, if the schools start to allow corporal punishment that could be seen as bullying towards the students.
    Some people may think that this type of punishment is okay if the child deserves it. However does any child deserve to be hit by an adult? If children grow up with adults that have the right to hit them, they could potentially grow up to think hitting someone is okay. Children could also feel alone, like they have no one to go to when they need to talk or when they have a problem that they could not go to their parents about, they will be left alone not knowing what to do. Some teachers can also be very bias and could be hitting the kids just because they do not favor them. This could mean the child is just simply being abused instead of punished which is not okay.
    According to the website, privateschools, a majority of people agree that corporal punishment should not be allowed in schools. The website states that this form of punishment has no place in the education of students and it perpetrates the cycle of abuse. School is a place where all kids of all ages should come and feel safe. If the teachers are striking the kids, will the kids feel safe? Of course not. Schools should leave disciplinary actions to the parents of the child.

  • Parents need to be better disciplinarians.

    It's not the school's, nor the teacher's, job to be parents.

    The problem is at home. The parents encourage their children to ignore authority and disrespect those of authority. The children walk all over the parents and the parents allow it.

    I will however agree that a teacher has the right to fight back if a student punches, hits, kicks, or bites the teacher.

    I would NEVER teach in a public school in the US. It is disgraceful and pathetic. The US is no longer the greatest country.

  • No of course not!

    First of all what are we in the dark ages?! Also teachers have no right to hurt the kids ! This is just going to cause kids hating school . School is hard enough for kids this is going cause emotional distress and trauma depending on the severity of the punishment. And what will they learn? They're going to look back on school and remember the crimes and punishments sure they won't do it again but that type of punishment is just going to break the kids' spirit!

  • Abooose to animals

    Its violent and unfair to little rapist children. People have to care about those lonely children that rape adults, like come on they are brought up in a bad way so they do bad things to good people. We need to help these kids. If we don't help them more people will get hurt and scared for life
