punishment should be reinstituted in our public schools to discipline bad, incorrigible students? Why? Why not?

Are you a teacher? Have you ever taught in an inner city classroom?
Yes. And I taught in an inner city classroom for 15 years. Also subbed in Compton unified 21 years ago. And my parents taught there for 30 years, too.
Actually, I read your hub on the Yellers. I looked it up after I posted the comment. Very good hub--you did an excellent job describing that kind of teacher. I've been there myself.
You attend private schools where the students were affluent.They appreciated the value of education & discipline.It isn't that way w/poor students in public schools Short of expulsion, the only remedy for the latter is corporal punishment.
My early school years was government, and my sister attended government schools. My brother and I went to private schools. Same discipline.
You have good points.
Exactly, the use of stringent discipline including corporal punishment will get the more incorrigible students in line. When there was corporal punishment in public schools, children BEHAVED!
