If your child misbehaves in school is ok for the principle to beat them with a belt, even if he is your pastor?

I totally agree. Some states do however submit themselves to corporal punishment, Georgia is a state that does.
I agree there is a situation in Georgia where the principal/pastor beat student with belt and left bruises. The mother wants him brought up on charges and the pastor maintains no wrong doing.
and beating a kid with a belt is not 'spanking.'
I would agree and to see the young boy and to think of a man hitting him with a weapon is outrageous. We have to be careful with legislation, in the wrong hands its dangerous.
You're definitely my kind of mom. This is an issue in Georgia, when a principal beat a kid with a belt and left marks. His mom wants to file charges. She was alot more poised than I would have been. Many states have the corporal punishment law.
from the situation you describe, the school itself will be useless. the mother should call police & have him arrested for assault. contact attorney or Legal Aid.
I agree she is doing so. She made an excellent point in saying, that if she had done that and left bruises and a doctor had observed. She would be behind bars.
@britt: right on, I wish her the best of luck. it won't be easy though- schools sometimes think they have limitless rights when it comes to other people's kids- & need to be shown they do not!!
That's the sad part about the system people are sometimes afraid to speak up. This man has a church following, but the law still applies to even him in my eyes. Actions=Consequences. You Rock!
