Reasoning is the most preferred method of disciplining in SA schools

Reasoning and discussion is the most preferred method of disciplining in South African schools, a Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) study revealed recently. The study by Mbithi wa Kivilu and Muchiri Wandrai is titled “Spare the rod and save the child, most South Africans believe”.

The study  investigated changes in attitudes towards methods of disciplining school pupils among South Africans aged 16 years and older, and was drawn from the annual South African Social Attitudes Survey (SASAS) between 2003 and 2006. The study also included other influences, such as religion, gender, and race on these attitudes.
