Birmingham Student Says Beaten In Class|ABC 33/40 News
I'm shocked that any schools still have corporal punishment.
I'm not, it's common in the South.
Corporal Punishment is "Legal" in the following states (about half are "in the south")
HOWEVER it is important to note that NO state actually runs a school system (except Hawaii). Each school system within these states has their own policies regarding corporal punishment. For example, while corporal punishment might be legal in Texas, it is explicitly against the policy of almost every school district in the state.
Furthermore, there are VERY strict Federal Rules regarding the treatment of Special Education Students. I found this out after I restrained a mentally disabled student that went berserk in a crowded hallway after lunch. All I did was wrap an arm around her and guide her through a door into the main office. I was rewarded with a manditory "Restraint Class" that I took on Thursdays for 2 hours after school at the administration building for FOUR WEEKS....oh yes, fun.
Afterward I swore that if anyone went crazy, my only response would be to make a hasty exit from the scene.
(much like discussion board threads)
The majority of the rest of those countries are either still in the south or in the bible belt. It's honestly not a surprise either way.
