School board votes to resume paddling

Paddling is back in an elementary principal's discipline tool box after the Marion County School Board voted Tuesday to add it back into the code of conduct after a three-year absence.

The board ruled that paddling can be used only if a parent gives a standing written OK once a year. In addition, the principal must obtain verbal permission at the time the punishment is handed down.

Under the policy, corporal punishment can only be used at the elementary school level. It can only be used on a child once a semester. Principals are not bound to use the punishment. ...

Just seems that way back when, when children were disciplined: when the rod wasn't spared, the world was a different place. Way back when, when a oarent could spakn their child, if necessary, and not be arrested for child abuse. The kids seem to rule the households these days, doing and saying whatever they want, basically.
Pervs...yeah, these days, I would have a big problem leaving my child with anyone. Period. The world has changed and continues to spiral out of control. The new normal: anything goes...just be you!

While not opposed to corporal punishment in itself, I now have grave doubts that many of the modern crop of "educators" aren't closet S&M perverts just waiting for someone to "discipline." Fearing child molesters, people drive their kids to school nowadays, yet foolishly *assume* that school staff can be trusted.

Think about it the next time you entrust your children to *any* hirelings, including nursery workers, Sunday School teachers, & youth ministers. Think I'm exaggerating? Christ alludes to an often-overlooked general principle in John 10: "But he that is an hireling … careth not for the sheep."

Not a good reason to spank, it will be ineffective if only used as a desperation measure.

I don't know how people here feel about spanking and other forms of discipline. My wife's family along with most people up here I know say, " oh, don't spank children! Well, most of their kids are just awful, and if nothing else works, what's left? I know I behaved when I was a kid because I knew what would happen otherwise. I was also expected to say "please", "thank you", "yes sir/ma'am,", etc, etc. I also didn't have much and appreciated anything I received. Kids in school behaved better as well because the teacher either punished you in some way, or worse, sent you home with a note to give your parents.

The best thing to do is homeschool your children.

You're responsible for their education and discipline.

My grandfather was a teacher in rural Illinois back in the 1920s, and his superintendent strongly admonished him to "really lay the wood upon them" (the students) if and when they even started to misbehave.

Sounds brutal now but this was considered wise advice back in those days for any new teacher seeking to set an effective precedent and first impression.

I don't think anyone should be touching children but their parents, although, many parents don't really seem to believe in discipline anymore. What I find interesting is how this is okay for the state, but if a parent spanks a child, the child can report them for child abuse; getting DSS involved and possibly taken away.
I remember teachers pulling kids hair and shaking them, rulers across the knuckles, etc to keep them in line.
The article mentioned that minorities are nervous because they feel that their kids will be singled out for paddlings...because they are minorities. Give me a break. I'm so sick of the poor us cries. Everyone gets treated the same and have the same or even better opportunities
