In any  System of education, either formal or non-formal, learning out comes and students achievement are of major concerns, as these are thought to be the determination of evaluative aspect of education. Though the academic achievement of, students depends on various factors such as students desire to learn, instructional strategies, study material, students study skills etc. The learning skill of students also plays an important role in the academic achievement. It we want to know the quality of education, the first job is to study the academic achievement after that we comes on learned skills of that learner. Education is considered as a primary input it means state of development. It leads to material progress on the one hand, Social and economic emancipation on the other hand. All these become easier if a child gets qualitative education. It has been investigated that children are the key part of the society and their perception about their corporal   punishment that is only to maintain discipline more than any reform to improvement that may cause much unexpected result as victim or hostages   of physical or emotional violence.

 It has been observed that low economic background teachers in school had lots of the reason to adopt corporal punishment to maintain discipline, reason being it was argued that students home problems from their family background, economically background and poorly brought up in addition to violence from elders to younger ones and slums areas, that sometimes caused violence from teacher to students and vice-versa. It was the complaints from parents about their children to misbehave out of the schools also. There was a great problem which was identified by the teachers that contain barriers are there as communication gap due to language, working students due to poor condition. They work as labour child to feed their family.
