Corporal punishment is not the right way to punish children because it is humiliating and will add more bullying to schools. “Children who experience corporal punishment are more likely to hit or use other violence against other students or people(Anastasia 3)” When an administrator or someone kids look up to does someone thing, it makes the thing they do seem ok to their pupils. When teachers hit their students the children will pick up from that thinking it is ok to use violence against other people as well.
