If a kid doesn't get some real punishment he/she will turn into a spoiled little shit (I've seen it happen many times before). BUT I don't think this punishment should be allowed in schools because it is, after all, the parents job to raise their kid/s, not some douche bag that rambles on about crap most of us will never need to know anyway. The reason kids are so soft these days is because their parents don't want to hurt 'their little precious', so as a result the kid grows up into an awkward twit that can't fend for himself/herself, and as stated before - turn into a spoiled brat. I saw it many times when I was in school, and unfortunately I'm still seeing it today.

Of course, I am against corporal punishment at schools!!! Because, nobody can beat, hit and harm children! It is against the law. If the teacher is well-quilified and smart, he/she can afect on pupils' minds without any pusing and forsing.

Firstly, I would like to define corporal punishment, Corporal punishment is a form of physical punishment that involves the deliberate infliction of pain as retribution for an offence, or for the purpose of disciplining or reforming a wrongdoer, or to deter attitudes or behaviour deemed unacceptable. The term usually refers to methodically striking the offender with an implement, whether in judicial, domestic, or educational settings.

Corporal punishment should not be allowed, because as accordance to the international law on human rights, set by the Geneva Convention in Switzerland, Part II, Article 7, No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. In particular, no one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation. Since the child are so small, they should not be getting corporal punishment.

Not matter how qualified the teachers and the principals in the school is, they should not use corporal punishment on students, such punishment are considered cruel to small students that is still in school.

I hereby give two reasons why corporal punishment should be disallowed, Canada banned corporal punishment in 2004. No European country permits corporal punishment. So far, the United States Congress has not acted on requests from organizations such as Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union to enact federal legislation banning corporal punishment. Since education is widely viewed as a local and state matter, any further banning of corporal punishment will probably have to occur at that level. If, on the other hand, the federal government were to withhold funding from states where corporal punishment is legal, the local authorities might be more inclined to pass the appropriate laws.

In addition, Corporal punishment is not allowed in the military, mental institutions and prisons. But it is still legal to hit students in 20 states. The research shows that children who are beaten and abused are more likely to be prone to depression, low self-esteem and suicide. The simple fact that corporal punishment as a disciplinary measure is not part of any education curriculum indicates that educators at every level know that corporal punishment has no place in the classroom. Discipline can and should be taught be example.

Most leading professional associations oppose corporal punishment in all its forms. The reason why is that they feel it causes irreparable emotional damage to young people.

Therefore, due to the physical and physiological barrier that may occur to a child, corporal punishment should be disallowed in school

Yes but have it be optional. Have the school send out papers to the parents to sign on if they want their kid smacked if he or she breaks the rules. If they sign the paper the kid is put in classes with other kids that parents have signed the paper. If not they go into classes with kids that parents also didn't sign the paper.

No. Corporal punishment is child abuse. When corporal punishment is used, it leaves a mental scar on a child that carries on into adulthood.
