Summary

Corporal punishment is one option available to many school districts as a disciplinary measure. State law generally regulates the use of corporal punishment, and many states prohibit it while others provide specific guidelines for its use. However, many state legislatures have delegated responsibility for setting corporal-punishment policy to school boards. In this situation, school boards formulate a general policy and pass the decision whether to use corporal punishment on to the principal. This guide is an experiential activity designed to introduce participants to the complex topic of corporal punishment. Through simulation, each player must make several decisions on corporal punishment considering the contradictory forces of policy and politics. The exercise is intended to be engaging and provocative and to invite personal involvement that not only motivates participants but offers a useful common experience concerning corporal punishment. Included in the exercise are the basic scenario, supplementary material, and a detailed strategy to assist discussion leaders. Participants take the role of principal, make decisions concerning corporal punishment, and evaluate each other's judgments. A list of 26 selected readings on corporal punishment is included. (JPT)
