Argument #2

The second argument we believe that corporal punishment should be allowed is because it solves disrespect and disobeying towards teachers and that it is more useful than suspensions and detentions. Nowadays, students show disrespect towards teachers because they aren’t scared of them. This is mainly because teachers nowadays only are allowed to scold or punish them by giving detentions and suspensions. However, students don’t change easily by verbal punishment according to procon.org. These students can influence other students as well. Other students might feel negligible towards teachers and cause the same trouble again when they don't feel fear. Students who cause troubles normally cause troubles for multiple times and corporal punishment is the only way to these students will get their lessons taught. For example in Korea, people who were related to crimes were sent into prison for the same or similar crime they convicted before. This shows that people don't change unless they are strongly punished. This relates to students getting suspended and given detention but getting multiple detentions and not changing their attitudes. They won't change unless they are physically punished and feel fear.

Joohyung, you have not read my previous dispute against Rayan therefore i will state it again. In an experiment conducted by three University Of Toronto graduates, they had came to the conclusion that child abuse can cause disordered psychological development and behaviour problems, therefore the ignorant mentality that physical abuse makes a child more disciplined is incorrect. In fact, their behavior would only get worse from physical abuse.

Thence, how could physical punishment possibly positively impact a child's decipline? Your evidence is strongly biased, therefore it isn't too reliable.

Side: No, it should not be allowed.

I support this argument because it makes a lot of sense as it gives evidence on how corporal punishment makes students better people and it shows how detention and suspension do not have a good effect on students.

Side: Yes, it should be allowed.

Opening statement:

Corporal punishment should be allowed in schools since it is beneficial for various reasons. Corporal punishment allows teachers to treat disobeying and disrespecting students, cost effective, time effective and prevents future actions. We will explain why corporal punishment should be allowed in the followed arguments.

Side: Yes, it should be allowed.

Argument#1:

Corporal punishment is often chosen instead of detention or suspension.

Allison Collins, a high school senior at Robbinsville High School in North Carolina, stated she chose corporal punishment over in-school suspension when her phone rang in class. Her principal, David Matheson, stated, "Most kids will tell you that they choose the paddling so they don't miss class."

This manages time much more effectively as students do not have to waste time in detention because time is valuable in kid's lives. Corporal punishment is also cost effective and it is something everyone can afford unlike taking their child/ student to a therapist which may cost a lot of money.

One 18-year-old student who was critical of the use of corporal punishment in his rural school district stated that 'we couldn't have after-school detention. There was no busing. Kids who got detention would have to find another way home.' "

This wasted time and money as the students might not have had any money on them to call a taxi or an uber.

In another experiment conducted by three University Of Toronto graduates, they had come to the conclusion that child abuse can cause disordered psychological development and behavior problems, therefore the ignorant mentality that physical abuse makes a child more disciplined is incorrect. In fact, their behavior would only get worse from physical abuse.

Studies from several countries in all regions of the world, such as the “Effect of Physical Abuse on Academic Achievement among Secondary School Female Students in Jeddah”, suggest that up to 80 to of children suffer physical punishment in their homes, with a third or more experiencing severe punishment resulting from the use of implements. So are you telling me that this percentage of people are really being more disciplined? Obviously not.

Side: No, it should not be allowed.

This dispute has nothing to do with Argument 1 as it is talking about psychological development problems when Argument 1 is really talking about how corporal punishment in schools are cost effective and time effective.

An experiment conducted on female secondary students in Jeddah by King Saud Bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences and Alexandria University, Physically abused school-age children continued to function more poorly than their not maltreated peers on a variety of academic and socio-emotional measures. About two third of participants who reported any forms of physical abuse have GPA less than 85% compared with about one third participates who reported that they never been abused have GPA less than 85% in a school in Jeddah.

Furthermore, some minors are so physically abused that According to World Health Organization, every year, there are an estimated 41 homicide deaths in children under 15 which are caused by physical abuse.

Side: No, it should not be allowed.

There is no source to support the evidence of the experiment conducted on female secondary students in Jeddah that you stated in your argument.

Yes there is. There is a section in the second article called "Effect of Physical Abuse on Academic Achievement among Secondary School Female Students in Jeddah" where it talks about the results they got.

As it states: "It was found that 29% of participates reported that they were physically abused. About two third of participates who reported any forms of physical abuse have GPA less than 85% compared with about one third participates who reported that they never been abused have GPA less than 85% and the difference was statistically significant"

Argument 2

Corporal punishments have led to ruptured eardrums, brain damage and other bodily harms and in some cases death. Continuously is has led to deep emotional trauma in children Whilst this is not a country specific phenomenon Fr Muwina has stated that children should be disciplined but in a way that does not involve hitting "Children need discipline but they need to learn self-discipline. There is need to encourage non-violent and non-humiliating ways of instilling discipline in them." - Fr Muwina

Side: No, it should not be allowed.

It does not support corporal punishment and that is my argument

Side: Yes, it should be allowed.

This is because the teachers were too biased and punished the students too much. This is the teacher's fault, not corporal punishment itself. Therefore, there should be certain limits of punishment teachers can do.

Side: Yes, it should be allowed.
