Default You are right, Molly

You are right. We have all of these anti bullying campaigns, zero tolerance for this and that, yet we still have adults hitting children with paddles.
It is called "assault with a deadly weapon" in any other walk of life. We don't hit wives, prisoners, mental patients, or pets, yet our educated sector is beating and bruising our children, and calling it "discipline"....the root word here means "to teach"...just what is being taught with corporal punishment? The bully has definitely moved to the head of the class.
As I said in a previous post, when a school district embraces hitting children, all sorts of misconduct is tolerated. I imagine it is much like an abusive spouse who hits, there is physical and emotional abuse. Ditto to the administrators who hit, they are also abusive in other ways.
Thanks for the support and for the interest in this topic.

This link will take you to a news story from Wilmington, NC, from the ABC affiliate. As the story will tell you, corporal punishment is alive and well in North Carolina schools.
