Auther : Dr. Khaled M. Alfadhalah - Mohammed Alsagher

Objectives: The study aimed to examine attitudes of students of college of basic education in Kuwait and students of Bahrain teacher’s college toward corporal punishment at schools.

Results: Results showed that students of College of Basic Education had neutral attitudes toward using corporal punishment at school, whereas students of Bahrain teacher’s college had negative attitudes toward the same. In addition, the study found that there were statistically significant differences at the level of α ≤0.05 in attitudes toward corporal punishment among students of College of Basic Education attributed to sex, and in favour of male students. The study also found statistically significant differences at the level of α≤0.05 in attitudes toward corporal punishment among students of Bahrain teacher’s college attributed to sex, and in favour of male students, besides statistically significant differences at the level of α ≤0.05 in the means of attitudes toward corporal punishment between students of College of Basic Education and students of Bahrain teacher’s college, in favour of students of College of Basic Education.
