Legalised Corporal Punishment = Legalised Physical Assault

How can corporal punishment be legal anywhere in the US? Even worse, how can it be administered for something as petty as sharing homework answers?

A Texas high school student opted to take a spanking rather than serve another day of in-school suspension, but she was left bruised and blistered after she was spanked by her male vice principal, who violated the school’s policy on corporal punishment, reports WFAA.

Taylor Santos, a high-achieving sophomore at Springtown High School, said she didn’t know that a classmate had copied her homework, but the school assigned both students to two days of in-school suspension. Taylor volunteered to take a paddling instead, to avoid missing any classes. Texas is one of the 19 states that still allows spanking in school, but it requires that parents give permission, which Santos’ mother, Anna Jorgensen agreed to.

But what they didn’t realize was that it would be the school’s male vice principal who would administer the spanking — violating the school’s rule that the teacher giving the paddling must be the same sex as the student.

“I knew school policy was females swatted females, and males swatted males. If Taylor wanted that, I said that would be fine,” Jorgenson told WFAA, adding that she was horrified when she saw the results of the spanking and learned of who did the swatting.

“It looked almost like it had been burned and blistered, it was so bad,” Jorgensen said of her daughter’s behind.

Jorgensen said she called the vice principal to complain, but he told her that it was perfectly normal for her daughter’s bottom to look like that after the spanking and he wasn’t aware of the school same-sex swatting policy.

Swatting? You swat a fly, not a person!

Let me ask you an obvious question – What would be the punishment for a parent that hit his child so hard she had burns and blisters on her bottom?

Educators should never be allowed to discipline a child in a way the child’s own parents would be prohibited from doing.
