Legal Support for Corporal Punishment Can Be Eliminated!!

Here is a link to the latest report of The Global Initiative to End Corporal Punishment of Children. The Children's Rights Information Network Reports: "There are 26 countries that still legalise corporal punishment in the home, schools and the penal system, according to the 2012 Global Report on Ending Legalised Violence against Children, jointly published by the Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children and Save the Children. The report also lists the 33 states that have achieved prohibition in all settings, the 75 which have accepted recommendations on 28 that have rejected such recommendations, and the more than 80 states with immediate opportunities to enact prohibition."
