In this episode, in our series exploring punishment in schools, we talk to Dr Helen Brown Coverdale, from the UCL School of Public Policy, about how we can use care ethics to guide our approach to punishment in school.
We explore how punishment itself may not be enough to stop a person committing the wrong in the future and how, instead, education could focus on building the capacity to resist the temptation to do wrong. We discuss the role shame and stigma has in punishment and how students can be empowered by different approaches to wrong doing.
