research methods which include in-depth interviews, biographies, discussions, focus group, content analysis, and life histories or observation.” The application of qualitative research should be applied in the study with a core objective of providing a good understanding of the situation. This implies that the methodology should endeavor to shed some light into the issue in question as well as explanation.
On the other hand, the quantitative approach, which follows a systematic and objective approach towards obtaining information regarding the research, is not preferred. A quantitative approach involves the analysis of data and presentation of results in order to arrive at a conclusion on a research topic or question. This approach would not be appropriate in this circumstance since the complexity associated to the procedure especially on sampling, provides a limitation. This is because the requirements of the research in question require an analysis into the situation and not test, or examine the results of the cause and effect of the scenario. Furthermore, a quantitative approach is time consuming and requires expertise in order to provide valid and reliable results. Statistical tools as well as the entire procedure for a quantitative research pose a big challenge; hence require much time in the development of the research results.
The appropriate research design for the qualitative methodology is the grounded theory, which looks into the problems of the situation and how these problems are handled as well as test and develop a theory with respect to the issue at hand. According to Monique, Inge, & Ajay (2011) “grounded theory is… an approach to qualitative research… that provides a rigorous and ‘scientific’ approach yet it also remains faithful to the interpretive nature of qualitative analysis.”
Concerning the research question the grounded theory provides a comparative review of literature relevant to the research question then provide an

He sought to employ the use of logos to appeal to his readers’ minds in ways that could make his arguments authentic. By citing real historical and contemporary leaders, Machiavelli managed to convince his readers that his argumenta were based on matters, which worked in real life.
For over the years, the problem has been the focus of the stakeholders as they try to find ways of addressing the problem. Teachers, parents, students, and educators have been involved in various ways in trying to find solution to the problem. The law makers have also not been left behind; lawmakers in many states have different views regarding how to address the problem of indiscipline in US public schools (Lenta, 2012).
The study will specifically rely on data that will be collected from all stakeholders involved in corporal punishment including students, government institutions, teachers, policy makers, parents, and school administrators. This method will be used to evaluate the numbers of reported cases regarding corporal punishment in public schools.
Most of the Southern states are among the 19 states that have not yet banned it. The first U.S state to place a ban on corporal punishment was New Jersey way back in 1867 which was preceded by Massachusetts in
The most effective research methodology in examining the nature and side effects of corporal punishment is relying on mix methodology (qualitative and quantitative research methodologies). Qualitative research method collects information that is not numerical in nature.
There are those who hold the view that corporal punishment is a proved and tested way of achieving this end (Dayton, 2009). There are those who believe that corporal punishment should not be allowed in public schools as a way of instilling
The history of this topic can be traced back to the American Revolution. It has been practiced in the US public schools since the American Revolution (Alexander and Alexander, 2012). While that may be the case, it
