Default News Media regarding North Carolina issues

There is a topic that has been locked on this forum, but I get lots of emails and requests about this issue, having to do with corporal punishment in NC schools.
I would like to direct those of you interested in this issue to the Saturday, September 30, 2006, front page of the New York Times.
There will also be a national morning show aired this next week or the following, you can see my face and hear a bit more about this.
Thanks,
Peggy Dean

Thanks, mm34b,
I was afraid to put a link here, didn't know if that would be permissible. I would assume it is fine if you did it, you seem well tuned in with all the rules.
Thank you for doing that.
Peggy

I will let you know of the national morning show that is covering this issue when I hear from the show. I was interviewed this past Thursday, and out of courtesy to the station, will not announce the show until it is going to air.

I don't think the subject is banned on City-Data unless posters express their personal views, for or against.

Was it ever practiced here? I have heard of the law, but would like to know if it is actually ever used in my area of Union County. I was told by my sons school pricipal that he would never use it just because it is available to him.

Thanks Miker for the plug!
I just got an email letting me know that the segment that I referred to will air in the morning.
For those of you interested, you may wish to watch the CBS Early Show.
