Is it ok for the school to spank your child, is corporal punishment acceptable?
If your child misbehaves in school is ok for the principle to beat them with a belt, even if he is your pastor?
I don't believe it's OK for a school official to spank a child. I believe that this is the parents' issue and no one else. Schools have plenty of ways to correct a child, including calling the parents if the situation warrants it.
No, school officials should never strike a child. It is okay, however, to make an example of bad, disrespectful behavior. If a kid can't behave after being verbally reprimanded, then they should be sent to sit in the office or be sent home. The rest of the class deserves to get the benefits of learning w/o disruption.
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.
Although corporal punishment was allowed when I went to school in the 1950s, it is not allowed in U.S. schools, and it also is not allowed in the Catholic school in Thailand where I am teaching. I personally am not in favor of it.
all jokes aside, i would beat the crap out of anyone who hits my kid if they were adults.
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!

I always said I would spank my children, if necessary. I was spanked as a child, but not excessively. I can remember 2 or 3 times. Now that I have a child, I am not so sure. What do you think? Are children receiving the discipline they need, lately? Are we, as...

I don't have children, but it seems to me that there are a lot more brats out there these days. Nieces and Nephews included. But parents don't believe in corporal punishment anymore. I remember getting whipped for bad behavior and I fully deserved it more times than I care to admit, but I never...

What is your view on school corporal punishment?The reason why I asked this question is because when I was a youngster attending primary school in Jamaica, I was beaten over the back with a leather strap that was soaked in urine for a more effective application of punishment, for a question that...
