Arguments Against Corporal Punishment in Schools

Summary: A review of research, and opinions by the author, that says spanking is not an effective form of punishment in schools. Researcher says teaching by fear does not enhance development and that the lessons of corporal punishment are short-term.
The question posed is, should corporal punishment be used in public schools? I believe that I have a better feel for this issue then most, because I have attended both private and public schools. The private school that I attended was allowed to punish students by spanking them with a paddle. That method of punishment, in my eyes, seemed to be semi-effective. During high school I began to attend a public school which was not allowed to physically punish students in any way. I believe with all the changes taking place in our world today, it is not realistic to think that the idea of corporal punishment would ever take hold again in schools. I think that most children would respond negatively to a change like this and that this change would only create more of a problem in the long run.
