They might as well ban it. Due to the fact that most schools will do everything but that anymore. You sign a piece of paper that its ok for this to be done the beginning of every year. But they will, give pink slips, detention, sat school, ISS, and suspension before they will paddle. So what is the point!

I don't think paddling is a good idea; it opens the door for yet more liability against the teachers. I did student teaching in Ruthorford County over a decade ago and it was clear that a teacher that just had some sort of conflict with a student would paddle that student more.
I was also extreamly uncomfortable with grown men spanking teenage girls. You have to picture a teenage age girl bending slightly with her hands face down on the teacher's desk and her butt out with her feet spread. The male teacher of course, would need a witness (another male, often me) and it was just a little creepy.
There are much more effective way to get a students attention; loss of privileges always worked for me.

Haven't seen anyone paddled since I was in elementary school. I wonder how often it occurs these days.
