    If you hit pupils, what kind of message does that send? That violence is condoned in society and is an acceptable way of dealing with poor behaviour? Corporal punishment is a base and degrading way of punishing pupils when more sophisticated, humane techniques should be in place.

    That doesn't overly make sense. They're more likely to hit back because if we introduced caning, it would be because of a lack of decent discipline. therefore, them "hitting back" may just be due to the lack of discipline prior to the reintroduction of caning, which would soon be eradicated when children got caned.

    That seems badly written. Basically.. the kids would stop hitting back when they kept getting caned.
    Well considering I had to read yours 3 times to grasp what you are talking about, I would say that yours is also quite badly written.

    Anyway, our opinions on whether teachers should be allowed to hit pupils will not change the fact that it will never be allowed to happen. If even parents can't smack children when they misbehave, then schools aren't going to get permission are they?

    If you gave me an implement and said "inflict pain on that child", I would say no. Any teacher who would do it is either in the profession for the wrong reason or taking the child's behaviour too personally.

    Usually future mass murders tend to be the quieter, more withdrawn members of the classroom.

    And the prospect of a telling off used to scare me :puppyeyes:

    Yeah see, that's sort of the point. It scares you, but probably doesn't scare the truly badly behaved pupils.

    Lol I was talking about my own post when I said it was badly written. Which is why I quickly summarised it in a few words at the very end.

    Well the fact remains that your argument wasn't great. "Pupils would hit back" - the fact that pupils would consider hitting back now would be the whole reason for introducing caning - to clamp down on bad behaviour.

    But yes, it would never be allowed to happen.
