Has anyone ever asked? Although a lot of the states still allow, there are always areas that are against corporal punishment, so does anyone know about these two areas, Daniel Island and Mt. Pleasant? Thanks.

Right off the top of my head I'd guess that they don't. I haven't checked for certain, but I'm pretty confident regarding it.

Corporal punishment is not allowed in SC public schools.

Private Schools may have different rules though....

I am copying the below from someone else who posted recently on city data. As well, I had found information months ago under the center for effective discipline. On that site it is listed by state as to where it is still legal.

"Corporal punishment in schools remains legal in 21 U.S. states and is used frequently in 13: Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida, according to data received from the Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education and cited in the report."

Thanks for responding OleTomCat. I too, want to believe like you, I'm just not so sure it doesn't really happen based on what I'm reading.

No, we don't spank here in Charleston County. There was still corporal punishment going on in the 80's and even into the early 90's here though. At one school where I taught, only the principal could administer the "whacks", but in another school teachers could also and I certainly saw that punishment "power" abused on more than one ocassion.

oye -- biting my tongue.

Are you serious -- 80's and 90's before things changed. What's that about.
