"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Two violations of a policy that was stupid to begin with.... OMG!!!! Call the National Guard out, boys. Oh, and I couldn't care any less who he votes for.
Completely and utterly unacceptable. School administrators have no business is dispensing corporal punishment, especially not using a method with sexual connotations from a male teacher to teenaged girls with enough force to leave bruises. Parents are given considerable leeway in how they deal with their children, but having physical abuse as school policy does not fly.
I actually support the paddling and wonder about the bruises. Maybe the girl should have a physical to see if a medical condition exists that is the underlying cause of the bruises, and if not, then the gentleman who did the paddling needs some education. You would expect red welts from a paddling, not bruises.
However, there are still problems with corporal punishment, and that is that there is no training for teachers. Last week, this resulted in a child being paddled so hard that it left huge welts on his buttocks. This goes beyond punishment, and is child abuse. So, while I agree with Texas giving parents the decision, I am very much against corporal punishment in schools until teachers are actually trained in how to administer the punishment.
