Abstract

In spite of an absence of supportive empirical evidence, corporal punishment continues to be employed as a behavior management technique in many schools. It is suggested that the use of corporal punishment is maintained by numerous reinforcing events and the schedules of their delivery, rather than by any reductive effects on students' behaviors. A variety of individual behaviors by students, teachers, and principals may gain access to these reinforcing events for the various parties involved and these behaviors, taken together, incorporate the coporal punishment cycle. Alternative behavior reductive techniques that may function as "corporal punishment cycle" breakers are discussed.
