    PART ONE: Reading ( 14pts )
    Nowadays , school discipline involves some form of detention or the removal of privileges .Not so long ago , however, a further option was corporal punishment – the use of a cane or leather strap, until it was abolished in state schools in 1986 , but not in independent school
    In practice, very few independent schools now use corporal punishment. Out of 1,000 schools in the independent sector, less than 1 per cent still uses it to discipline pupils.
    Why does this small group of schools still hang on to such an outdated form of punishment? We spoke to the headmistress of one such school to find out. Mss Smith still believes firmly in the use of corporal punishment. “What I am doing is saying you have done wrong and giving them a smack there and then. It is immediate. I believe this is much better than what I can only describe as prolonged mental torture,” she explains.
    In the opposite is Mss .Taylor, another headmistress, who believes that the use of corporal punishment brings the independent schools into disrepute. “I believe if you can’t control children other than by beating them, then you should not be in the profession.”
    At this school, pupils failing to produce homework might expect detention. Smoking is met with the use of sanctions such as being grounded, the loss of privileges and regular reporting to authority. Most independent schools operate similar disciplinary procedures and parents seem to agree with this approach.

    a. corporal punishment is used in private schools.
