POLL: Should schools use paddling as a form of discipline?
A charter school in Georgia is drawing national attention this week, after sending out consent forms to parents informing them that paddling will be used as a form of punishment in their school.
“In this school, we take discipline very seriously,” superintendent Jody Boulineau stated. “There was a time where corporal punishment was kind of the norm in school and you didn’t have the problems that you have.”
“A student will be taken into an office behind closed doors. The student will place their hands on their knees or piece of furniture and will be struck on the buttocks with a paddle,” the consent form reads. Students will receive a paddling after their third offense, and “no more than three licks should be given.”
Students whose parents don’t consent to their children being paddled will receive a school suspension of up to five days as an optional form of punishment for misbehavior.
