Vlog Summary: Group punishment is still happening in some Deaf schools, in classrooms and on sports teams, even though research shows it is ineffective. Sharon Duchesneau explains how group punishment hurts those children who were not involved in inappropriate behaviors. Instead of adults expecting children to “discipline” their peers through disapproval, it is more appropriate for effective consequences to be given to those who break the rules and positive reinforcement given to those who behave well.
