Paddling is Still Allowed in Some Texas Schools

Flickr Account:

I had heard about this rumor in one of my law classes about paddling in Texas schools. Now it is legal to do, but most Texas schools don’t do it. In fact, I didn’t know this was still allowed. The interesting part about this story is that the parents are not mad about the paddling, but who did the paddling.

Taylor Santos is a sophomore at Springtown High School in Springtown, Texas.  Last week, she was caught letting another student cheat off her.  So the school gave her an option:  A two-day suspension or a paddling. Both Taylor and her mother chose paddling.  So the vice principal paddled her.

Now Taylor’s family is upset, but not over the paddling. It is the fact that the vice principal was male, and school policy is that females paddle females.  Taylor is covered in bruises, but the outrage here is that a man caused them.

So how did the school board react?  By saying we should get rid of that same-sex policy so men can paddle female students.

I really want my listeners opinions on this. Should we still have corporal punishment in school? Please write your answers in the comment section below.
