    Do You Support Bringing Back "The Paddle" In States The Have Done Away With It?

    Most teachers agree the discipline in classrooms is a problem(privately).

    Although, they just poo poo it when wanting more money in their pocketbooks(Raises)

    When I went to school, in Calif mind you, the principal had a paddle. You din't want to go to the principals office


    Yay or nay on bringing back the paddle?




    Just because it's legal in some states doesn't mean they do it

    Good teachers can maintain discipline without assaulting children.

    So pray tell why we're such a failure in education compared to the rest of the world?


    By the way, it isn't teachers who use the paddle that i'm aware of

    Performing well in tests is unrelated to hitting children.

    Absolutely not!

    The 44th president prohibited suspension for defiance of a teacher. He felt that two certain groups were being unfairly singled out for suspension.

    Can you imagine the uproar if those two groups were subjected to corporal punishment?

    Discipline in public school is gone forever, just as discipline is gone from our society, in general.
