    Default Corporal punishment in schools


    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    According to Wikipedia, 19 US states still allow corporal punishment in public schools but I'm intrigued to know how commonplace corporal punishment is.

    Are schoolchildren routinely 'spanked' or is it just out-dated?

    First-hand knowledge appreciated.

    Default Corporal punishment in schools

    It's outdated and ill mannered of those doing the "spanking". It needs to stop is what needs to be done.

    The only thing that matters is that we have no regrets, right?

    Out dated. What about private schools? They may have a different standard.

    I think it should be allowed.. I think to many people are into this "child abuse" debate.
    I never had it in school cause they don't allow it.. but When my mom and dad were in school they
    got it and they talk about how better off schools were and the kids behaved..
    Now kids at my school cuss the teacher and have such bad attitudes toward teachers and the principal.
    I think personally we might be better off if they would have never stopped it.
    I got spanked as a kid and still would today if my dad needed to.. and I turned out fine..

    Even if corporal punishment still exists on the books, I doubt the vast majority of public schools would actually exercise that statute. It's a lawsuit as most and invitation for the media to cast controversy and bad PR at the least.

    Definitely not allowed in UK. It would be called abuse.

    Every generation says that. Don't fall for it.

    This is a fallacy. Just because you turned out fine doesn't make something okay.

    Corporal punishment is allowed in my state but not my school system, so its never happened to me. My parents never been spanked in school either since its illegal in NY. But I think spanking is a effective form of discipline. I personally think schools should make spanking optional to the parent on whether their child can receive corporal punishment, since quit frankly some kids at my school need a good whoopin. btw i been spanked by my parents before.

    Not exactly true, private schools in New York are allowed to practice it. Not that many do!

    I have been hit once by a teacher, and I probably deserved it. The kid that fucked with my head in 9th grade had a thing for doing that taser pressure point on me (between where your ribcage ends and your hips start, also sometimes referred to as 'love handles' if someone is a little bigger) and it got to the point where he'd push me out of my chair doing it. Well we were doing a lab and the teacher was in the back with his back to us and the kid did it, so I got up off the floor and smacked him with my ruler. Not a second after I felt a hand connect with the back of my head and the teacher was looking at me like "Oh shit, I just did that" and I laughed... He laughed too and I explained what happened after class.
    Veni, Vidi, Vici.

    Saw this in the diaries in response to someone feeding Kelvin...

    I'm not sure if it is legal in Tennessee or not, but it is written in my county's "agendas" that they give us. There is a small part about corporal punishment. But it doesn't have a lot of info. However, as long as I've been in Wilson County Schools, nobody has had corporal punishment. And the teachers have never mentioned it.
