  2. I was paddled in school. And I got my ass beat if I misbehaved at home. I learned wrong from right from discipline. I had no idea what a “time out” was. I see nothing wrong with paddling or spanking. I was shocked that schools don’t do it anymore.

  5. Currently, in the U.S., there are only three professions in which hitting someone on the buttocks in order to cause pain is part of standard practice:
    School teaching
    In deference to professions #1 and #2, the following qualification applies: pornographers and prostitutes who engage in sado-masochistic activities, do so exclusively with informed, consenting adults. As of 2012, buttocks-beating has been banned in the public school systems of 31 states.

  6. Check out youtube video documentary the board of education by jared abrams to see shocking injuries to schoolchildren from school paddling

  7. A teacher paddling a student is unacceptable. People say its effective but spanking is a little to far for a teacher. Teachers and students should have a distance put between them.

  8. Also, that picture really doesn’t do his injuries justice. His arms were scraped up, as were his hands and legs.

  9. I can’t believe this video is on here – that kid in the picture is my brother! I was actually in the audience watching this live. Jeez it seems like such a long time ago

  10. I have compiled shocking statistics on this, from Dept of Education documents, and published a comprehensive law review article about the constitutionality of hitting kids in school. Black boys are hit the most. And, of course, it’s pretty much the same states that beat slaves that are now beating children in schools. Please see “State Actors Beating Children: A Call For Judicial Relief,” 42 UC Davis L Rev. 1165 (2009), also available online on Professor Pollard-Sacks

  11. Please add your voice at Unlimited Justice dot com National Campaign to End School Paddling of Children.

  12. Get outraged! This is not an isolated incident. Children beaten at school sustain immediate physical injuries to their bodies. The pychological damage will last a lifetime. There is simply no excuse for a country that allows this and it goes without saying that those who swing the paddle should be classified as dangerous sociopaths and we PAY them to educate children? It doesn’t get sicker than that.
