This booklet attempts to help educators to find constructive ways of building a culture of discipline among learners – ways which will not only help them move towards a more peaceful and tolerant society, but which will help instill self-discipline in learners and encourage them to realise their academic potential and become mature and independently thinking adults. The booklet is divided into three parts;
Part One: Why corporal punishment is banned; Part Two: Alternatives to corporal punishment in the classroom; Part Three: Disciplinary measures and procedures.
