Corporal Punishment in Schools

The WSMA opposes the use of corporal punishment in schools and encourages all schools to adopt policies prohibiting corporal punishment. The WSMA encourages instead the use of alternative methods of discipline to produce responsible student behavior. (EC 9/91; EC Rpt I, A-91) (Reaffirmed A-17)
