CSR This type of punishment can be considered acceptable if it is no more than a few strikes with bare hands (actions must involve no objects) and if the student has significantly endangerd the learning of others my causing major disruptions in the classroom, such as continued, inappropriate arguments with the teacher that prevent the latter from educating the rest of the class and activities that seriously imperil the welfare of other students, which includes attacking them both physically and psychologically. However, it would need to be legitimised to ensure that no teachers- unless they have inflicted injury- are labelled unfavourably. I believe that this will act as a disincentive to poor or malicious behaviour, which will make classroom periods more productive and thus, coupled with the changes to GCSEs in several years time, will improve grades by ensuring that the poorly behaved students are more inclined to work hard, that the attention of the eager students is not diverted and the teacher is able to actually educate the class.
