If a parent did this they would be charged with a crime.
Let some parent go after a kid with a board and do some damage.
We have a messed up world when we let our teacher's do it and pay them.
Whats wrong here

Wait a second. The band teacher has an "inappropriate communication" with a student and he is immediately fired.

The principal spanks a child so hard that his butt is purple and he gets to teach.

Hmmmm. What is wrong with this scenario?

Does anyone know why Watson didn't take up the case?

About time someone starts getting these spoiled brats attention, the kid got spanked, if his folks were around or his g'ma would quit telling him how special he is maybe it wouldn't come to this, but like many kids someone has told him he's "special' and doesn't deserve to be held responsible for his big mouth..... The only people upset about this are the ones that think their kids deserve to be treated Better than others...... I got news people, none of your kids are Special, their born, they live they die, just like everyone else..........

Freeman is a joke, Turner is a joke, and so is the school board. The school looks quite nice but what happens when the school goes broke and bromos Turner and Freeman skip town? But whatever..You reap what you sow. Even at the church of christ!

Your post makes it seem like you think beating the snot out of children is the way to raise them. If we beat our kids and NEVER teach them any lessons, what have we REALLY taught them? Or is the plan to just keep churning out violent people to keep the prisons in business? I believe balance is essential. In my dealings with inmates very few were ever socialized or taught any life lessons.

you forgot to tell us how many of those inmates were raised as spoiled little brats that got what they wanted whether it was some candy,toy,motorcycle or even money for drugs and all they had to do for it was throw a tantrum and maybe hold their breathe for a few seconds.
kids dont need to be beat but discipline is a must.rusty didnt beat that kid he got a spankin that hit home.those are the best kind.

Buddy, you don't know much about prison. There aren't many people in prison that were "spoiked little brats."

The people that were in prison were beaten and there mamas were beaten in front of them. They are violent because their surroundings are violent.

Actually, I know of plenty of people who were spolied growing up and ended up in prison on drug charges. They didn't think much of it because they had gotten away with everything else in life. Atleast that's what I've had a few of the younger offenders tell me.

The only thing you know about what goes on in prison is what some wanna be says. So Simon Riley, talk about what you know. Dirty diaper's ........ nuff said.

I wish that they would still allow the teachers to spank the kids. If they would still spank them like they did in my time I don't think there would be as many problems as there is now. The roles have been reversed now, the parents are now afraid of the kids when the kids should fear what their parents might do to them. If the kids would get their ass whipped just a little more there would be less disrespect issues in the home and at school.

Well not only are we keeping Mr Brawley we have hired his wife. as well. I have no problem with his wife as I have always found her to be pleasant, I am just curious what the motive is. Could it be that she would not ever be expected to testify against him?

They are trying to become as progressive as Chillicothe. They want two for one.
