Abstract:This study discusses the arguments for and against the use of corporal punishment in Zimbabwe's secondary schools from the point of view of the students, the parents, and the teachers. An analysis of the views and attitudes of 600 pupils, 538 parents, and 21 school teachers in Zimbabwe reveals that although most professionals are against the use of corporal punishment there is still a significant number of parents and teachers who feel that its use in schools should continue. The study also reveals that almost all the pupils surveyed would like to see corporal punishment abolished in their schools. Recommendations for alternative methods to corporal punishment are made.
