School bringing back paddling as punishment
Sending home permission slips to parents last week, The Georgia School of Innovation and the Classics in the United States for children ranging between kindergarten up to ninth grade last week announced the new discipline policy.
The WRDW reported that one-third of forms had already been filled out by parents, accepting the new policy allowing teachers to strike students with a paddle as a form of punishment.
“In this school, we take discipline very seriously,” Superintendent Jody Boulineau told WRDW. “There was a time where corporal punishment was kind of the norm in school and you didn’t have the problems that you have.”
Paddling as a form of punishment is still legal in 20 states in America. Do you think Australian schools should bring back corporal punishment?
