It should not be a teacher’s job. It is not a teacher’s job to discipline kids.it is the parents’. The children feel abused because they are  spanked by people they are not attached to. Being punished by your actual family is more effective. And some teachers abuse their right to do corporal punishment. Parents do not know what they are doing in the classroom. And it is not effective because the children will not show respect they will show fear. Corporal punishment can also lead to resentment to the parents. Which of course is not good. It can lead to rebellion and character change in child over time

School is supposed to prepare you for the real world. Well, that's the general rule of thumb. And abuse is not accepted as such 'in the real world'. Yeah it's used, but not legally. If someone does something wrong outside of school, you can't just hit them. I believe that violence should not be accepted, encouraged or tolerated, especially in a 'safe' school environment.

Corporal punishment is of no use. Teachers do hit children because they don't do their homework or don't sit quiet. That is what the fuss is about, like teachers just find chances to beat children. Or we could finish this whole thing. I mean why can't they just quietly talk sense into them or at the maximum just scold them. Why use corporal punishment? I am totally in the favour of its ban

I agree with it. I think it teaches kids to bet better disciplined! They are actually scared of it.. Rather then detention where they are like.. Whatever... Detention! I don't see a big problem for having it at all! There are proven results that your kids have more respect!! All the way I agree with it!

It does more harm than good. Schools are supposed to be a safe, healthy environment, which isn't the case to begin with because of bad students, so teachers are supposed to be someone they can go to for help. But if the student starts to fear the teacher then school will no longer be seen as a safe place at all. Hitting a child isn't going to get them to respect you, it's going to get the child to fear you. Hitting someone can cause not only physical damage, but psychological damage as well. Corporal punishment should be banned. No doubt about it.

Corporal punishment in school is horrible It is horrible that teachers should hit and injure children for doing something wrong. It makes absolutely no sense at all! It could affect the student or damage them for the rest of their life. There are so many other ways to punish or discipline a child (like grounding), but there is no reason to hurt them.

I'm totally against it.  My honest opinion is that I totally agree with the people who are against corporal punishment. It is totally unnecessary. And to think that a child's teacher is hitting them just makes me sick. If it were my child I would immediately take my child out of that school and report the teacher.

Corporal punishment is abuse. The general idea of hitting a human, especially with a paddle, is assault if done to an adult, or child abuse if done to a child at home. Hitting children would instill in them that violence is an acceptable way to get what you want, and will come to school in fear.

No, it should not be banned. I’m a student and in my opinion the kids would learn from their mistakes. I see the kids in school and none of them have any discipline , I think it would  to help the youth in school; the back talk , fighting ,bullying it does not stop


Corporal punishment is immoral and should be banned. Corporal punishment should not occur no matter what the circumstances are in schools. It needs to be banned due to the mental and physical effects that it has on the children. Students should not have to go to school in fear that they are going to be hit as a form of punishment.

Corporal Punishment Is A Bad Idea For Schools Hands Down

Through my prospective corporal punishment related disciplines in school do not improve school safety, learning, or behaviour. It can cause a student to get hurt or may make their behavior worse. It can also bring back memories to those who have had a history of being abused by parents. It can really affect the brain and damage a student. Who knows they could have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. ( PTSD.) I strive to stop corporal punishment from being aloud at schools. It just isn't the right way. There are many other ways to discipline,and I know it isn't corporal punishment.

TOPIC: COMPOSITION (Argumentative)



Travelling by air seems unsafe to a fairly large number of people due to what they see, hear or read. News on plane crashes make a big noise in the world, such news naturally stays longer in the mind of many fliers or people. In fact, it is a mind-blogging to many people. This may explain why the flying fear still remains in the heart of some people. Therefore, you may think that traveling by air is riskier than traveling on the road, but truly speaking; travelling by air is safer than traveling on the road.


However, it is interesting to note that, travelling by air is safer than travelling on the road. Why? It is because safety is the major concern of every airline industry and there’s no any other mode of transportation that does it better than airline industries. In fact, there is no other mode of transportation that can be fully monitored, investigated and scrutinized as we have in aviation industries. Truly speaking plane crashes are so rare when you compare it to road transport accidents.


According to World Health Organization, road traffic injuries caused an estimated 1.24 million deaths worldwide in the year 2010. With this estimation, it seems one person is killed in every 25 seconds. It is very rare or difficult to have this kind of estimation in air transport within a year. Why? It is because safety in aviation industries is not negotiable. It is a core value of any aviation industry in the world.


EVALUATION:   From the article above, write a debate to support or oppose the motion, ‘Road  Transportation is Safer than Air Transportation’.
