ABSTRACT The study set out to investigate the effect of corporal punishment on academic performance of pupils in selected primary schools of Sacho Division, Baringo Central District - Kenya. Most teachers in primary schools have been using corporal punishment to "enhance" pupils' academic performance. Random sampling techniques were used to select 72 pupils from public schools and 24 pupils from private schools making a total sample size of 96 pupils. The same technique was used to select 72 teachers from public schools and 24 teachers from private schools making a total sample size of 96 teachers. Purposive sampling was used to select 12 head teachers. One instrument was employed in data collection and this was the researcher made questionnaire. Data was then presented in percentages and frequency distribution tables. The findings of the study revealed that the most commonly used forms of punishment in schools are canning, pinching, kneeling and manual labour. The investigation found out that learners' respondents (85%) disagreed that corporal punishment influences academic performance positively. Also teachers' respondents (95%) concurred with the pupils that CP does not promote academic performance. All the head teachers disagreed that CP helps academic perfonnance positively. The findings also showed that 94% of the respondents i.e. the pupils, teachers and head teachers preferred alternatives to corporal punishment to necessitate the boosting of academic performance in primary schools. The researcher recommends that the teachers explore fmiher altematives to corporal punishment which can be used to help the leamers in their academic perfonnance
