DL00012: Tool Kit for Teachers

Updated: Feb 6, 2022


For children in many countries, corporal punishment is a regular part

of the school experience; it is also a form of child abuse. Corporal

punishment is deliberate violence inflicted on children, and it takes

place on a gigantic scale. Legal defences for teachers who hit or beat

children still exist in most countries of the world. Corporal punishment,

however, has not been shown to be effective, especially in the long-term,

and it can cause children shame, guilt, anxiety, aggression, a lack of

independence, and a lack of caring for others, and thus greater problems

for teachers, caregivers and other children.
