in these discussions about spankings i have found out that at least 20 states in the united states allow corporal punishment in school. do you agree with this or not? would you sign a permission slip to have your child spanked in school?
i obviously think it's ridiculous. In fact, school systems with the highest rates of corporal punishment are the worst-performing, children who are the most punished are the most troubled and difficult to manage, and there is not one accredited college in the United States that instructs future educators in the proper method for hitting children. Documented research shows a correlation between school corporal punishment and certain negative social outcomes. States that have the highest rates of school paddling also have the lowest graduation rates, the highest rates of teen pregnancy, the highest incarceration rates and the highest murder rateshttp://www.nospank.net/correlationstudy....
i also found this, and i gotta say, anybody who allows this to happen to their child is fucked up. WARNING VERY GRAPHIC. http://www.nospank.net/violatn.htm
why is this legal??.
