v, 37 p.

Corporal punishment in schools in low-income countries is a widespread, under-addressed form of gender-based violence that exacerbates public health and socio-economic inequalities. At the request of the United States Agency
for International Development (USAID), the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago conducted an evidence review in response to the following guiding questions: What is the extent, nature, and consequences of corporal punishment in schools in low-income countries? How is corporal punishment in schools gendered in processes and outcomes in low-income countries? Do studies from low-income countries address social norms in upholding or challenging corporal punishment in schools as a widely accepted practice?
