The present research investigated the relationship between teacher punishment and aggression in adolescents. Sample consisted of 100 students (50 boys and 50 girls). Non probability purposive sampling was used to assess the relationship between teacher punishment and aggression among adolescents. It was hypothesized that there is relationship between teacher punishment and aggression in students. It was also hypothesized that there are gender differences in aggression. Buss and Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BPAQ) was used to measure aggression in students. It consisted of four subscales: physical aggression, verbal aggression, hostility and anger. A self-construct questionnaire was used to assess punishment. Correlation and Independent sample t-test were used to analyze the data. Findings of this study show that there is significant positive relationship between teacher punishment and aggression in students and boys are likely to be more aggressive than girls. Many previous studies are consistent with the finding of present research. The research will be helpful in educational institutions and classroom environment to deal with students and their issues as well as it can be a forecast for future studies.
