This research study aimed at exploring the effectiveness of a training program in changing the teachers’ behaviour regarding inflicting corporal punishment. Main purpose of the study was to explore the changes in the behaviour of teachers about corporal punishment due to training.
The experiment consisted of a pre-test post-test design for measuring change in the behaviour of teachers towards corporal punishment by conducting a training workshop using the specially designed manual. All the mathematics teachers of Boys Government secondary/higher secondary schools in District Nowshera and District Swabi, teaching 9th grade were included in the population and were taken as sample of the study. Pre-test (regarding behaviour about inflicting corporal punishment) was administered to the students of the selected teachers having positive attitude towards corporal punishment.
After one month and twenty days of the treatment post-test was administered to the same students to find out their behaviours regarding corporal punishment. There was a statistically significant change in the behavior of teachers towards corporal punishment due to training as they avoided corporal punishment after training.
