Abstract

This article discusses abuses of the use of legalized corporal punishment in schools. The relationship between social factors and the prevalence of corporal punishment in schools was assessed. Newspaper articles dated from 1975 through 1992 and collated through Burelles's Clipping Service were analyzed. The six variables were (a) sex of the educator, (b) sex of the student, (c) age of the student, (d) reason for punishment, (e) severity of punishment, and (f) geographical location. The study found that males are more likely to be the recipients of severe corporal punishment and that the reporting of corporal punishment incidents was highest in the South Atlantic region of the United States.
