This book has been printed in two editions, so please check before you buy! The black & white one is intended as an affordable option for those who simply wish to read the contents. The full-colour one is geared to anyone with particular interest in the examples exhibited. The primary intent of this work is to provide a comprehensive look at how corporal punishment (CP) was formerly deployed within the Canadian school system: from a general history of school CP to the invention, adoption, implementation, policy and regulation of use, and the ultimate abolition of the Canadian regulation school strap. Over one hundred former educators were interviewed to reconstruct actual trends in practice and procedure. Also included is a thorough look at manufacturers, suppliers, models, specifications and estimated market values for those interested in acquiring a real piece of educational history. This book discusses how our school CP practice was necessarily interwoven with world, judicial and parental CP influences. Included is a detailed study of one school punishment book to answer the questions of whether its application delivered any measurable result for any kind of behaviour, to what extent that result was observed, and if that result confirmed or contradicted popular opinion. Answers are provided to questions such as; is there empirical proof of CP's effectiveness? Does CP save lives? This book includes an account of all the typical opinions on the matter, why studies contradict each other and empirical world trends, popular myths and misconceptions about CP, the differences between judicious CP and abuse or violence, and the real reasons that it was abolished and it should never return. Much of this is directly applicable to another controversial subject: the current debates, ideologies and agendas on parental CP (spanking). Some trends and facets of parental spanking are also presented, including: the Art of Discipline with respect to CP, the Canadian Supreme Court's interpretations and why I believe it to be an excellent template, where the USA and UK differ, and why the Council on Europe's agenda makes me address questions like "Do spanking bans collapse civilizations?" This should be of interest to educators, CP historians, policy and lawmakers, and anyone with general interest in the changing trends of disciplinary methods and philosophies deployed at school and at home. Chapters included are: 1 General History; 2 The Regulation School Strap; 3 Practice & Procedure; 4 The Punishment Book; 5 General CP Ban Trends; 6 The Abolition of the Strap; 7 A Penny for Your Thoughts; 8 School Strap Models; and 9 Suppliers & Prices The subject matter and images within are intended for a mature audience and may be disturbing to sensitive readers.
