Abstract: The United States is one of only three industrialized nations that still permit the use of corporal punishment in its public schools. Schools are the only American institution where this practice is allowed. It has been banned in our correctional institutions, military settings and psychiatric facilities. The national trend is to move away from the use of corporal punishment in schools. Currently, Missouri is one of 22 states in the United States that still allow the use of corporal punishment in their schools.
