    just had a heated discussion with my friend, about the re-introducement of corporal punishment. With stabbings occuring in school, truancy up to one of the highest levels in years and cases like the columbine high school in the US do you think its a good/bad idea?

    Yes. Teachers have no control these days. If a pupil decides to misbehave there is nothing they can do to control them. Especially if there is a complete lack of parental interest.

    I'm sure it would just provoke the children hyper and sue you for grievous bodily harm.

    A dead man can not learn from his mistakes.

    however...

    A man who murders again and again and again is a waste of public money

    Anyway, I voted yes.

    They couldnt sue you if it was made legal. there would obviously have to be some measures to prevent the use of excessive force though. It would be more likely to calm down hyper children. simple conditioning - naughty = punishment therefore if im not naughty i wont get punished. they should never have got rid of it in the first place.

    i thinks it could be a good idea - some teachers really don't have any control.

    pain is the keyword here, not greivous bodily harm... that's the whole point of corporal punishment - to make them realise that you will get punished i.e. suffer pain if you misbehave.

    Corporal punishment, not capital punishment.

    lol


    I'm not sure about corporal punishment, it probably does stop kids misbehaving in school (a good thing) but it would just make them even naughtier and more disruptive once they left school. It doesn't really address the fundamental issue of lack of discilpine/parental responsibilty in the home.
