The researchers report an odds ratio of 1.30, which is significant but falls short of the 1.68 (or 1.50) benchmark that statisticians use to demonstrate a “small” effect.And experts agree that an occasional spanking likely has no negative influence on a child’s long-term behavior.Sixty-eight percent said their parents had spanked them, and these participants were more likely than others to admit that they had used physical violence against their romantic partners.It is noteworthy that the correlation between spanking and relationship violence was not particularly strong. The campus behavior coordinator shall respond by employing appropriate discipline management techniques consistent with the student code of conduct adopted under Section 37.001 that can reasonably be expected to improve the student's behavior before returning the student to the classroom. (a) A teacher may send a student to the campus behavior coordinator's office to maintain effective discipline in the classroom. “Once or twice is almost surely no big deal,” George Holden of Southern Methodist University in Dallas told “The real problem is the parents who are doing it a lot.” At the same time, studies have shown again and again that there is no particular advantage to spanking your children.It doesn’t improve their behavior, and it doesn’t shape them into better people.
The program must:(1) be age-appropriate and research-based;(2) provide models for positive behavior;(3) promote a positive school environment;(4) provide alternative disciplinary courses of action that do not rely on the use of in-school suspension, out-of-school suspension, or placement in a disciplinary alternative education program to manage student behavior; and(5) provide behavior management strategies, including:(A) positive behavioral intervention and support;(B) trauma-informed practices;(C) social and emotional learning;(D) a referral for services, as necessary; and(E) restorative practices.(b) Each school district and open-enrollment charter school may annually conduct training for staff employed by the district or school on the program adopted under Subsection (a). The principal may not return the student to that teacher's class without the teacher's consent unless the committee established under Section 37.003 determines that such placement is the best or only alternative available. If the student's behavior does not improve, the campus behavior coordinator shall employ alternative discipline management techniques, including any progressive interventions designated as the responsibility of the campus behavior coordinator in the student code of conduct.(b) A teacher may remove from class a student:(1) who has been documented by the teacher to repeatedly interfere with the teacher's ability to communicate effectively with the students in the class or with the ability of the student's classmates to learn; or(2) whose behavior the teacher determines is so unruly, disruptive, or abusive that it seriously interferes with the teacher's ability to communicate effectively with the students in the class or with the ability of the student's classmates to learn.(c) If a teacher removes a student from class under Subsection (b), the principal may place the student into another appropriate classroom, into in-school suspension, or into a disciplinary alternative education program as provided by Section 37.008. “Corporal punishment confuses the boundaries between love and violence for children while they are learning how to treat others.” For the study, researchers surveyed 758 adults between the ages of 19 and 20, and asked them whether they had been spanked, slapped or struck with an object as a form of punishment when they were younger.They then asked these volunteers about relationship violence.
