1. Guillory, Melanie K. An Analysis of Corporal Punishment Practices in the State of Tennessee.

Degree: 2017, University of Louisiana at Lafayette

This dissertation examines the use of corporal punishment in 142 Tennessee public school districts, as well as the data from the United States Department of Education Office of Civil Rights to identify demographic patterns and trends regarding corporal punishment in the state of Tennessee. This project also studies the relationship between school district enrollment and corporal punishment. This dissertation uses quantitative methods to analyze the data. The results of this study finds that medium-sized school districts (student enrollment between 500 and 1500 students) report the greatest number of corporal punishment incidents. Also, a higher percentage of white students experience corporal punishment than nonwhite students in a majority of the years studied. The study also finds that a relationship exists between district size and corporal punishment practices. Corporal punishment rates in Tennessee's 10 largest districts are quite low. The findings of this research are similar to those found in past research in Texas, Mississippi, and North Carolina.
