Any and all people who feel "real" good at spanking someone else's children are sick!
And to those parents who approve of school spanking ... get a grip and take care of your own children!
Educators who get a big ego high when they spank someone else's children are even "more" sick!
Educators are to educate, not discipline. Discipline is the job of the parents "if" there is a disciplinary problem to begin with. If a child causes a commotion in school then that child should be suspended from school. However, the schools don't want to lose the approximate $6,000 a year per child in school so rather than get the bad kids out of school to teach them a lesson, they spank and keep the child in school.
The grubby hands of an educator had best not EVER touch one of my children! I won't sue but I'll find a dark alley and a "very large" paddle!

Spare the rod and spoil the child. Clearly not enough beatings going around with all the drug use and pregnancies. Beatings should be in public with a heavy dose of shame.

My kids are made to mind. If they get in trouble at school, they are fixing to be in trouble at home too. I got my butt whooped when I was a kid and I am not damaged from it. I learned consequences!!! Something 95% of kids these days need to learn. I don't think beating a kid is right but saying oh now honey don't do that ain't gonna cut it either.
