Re: Corporal punishment in school

I remember a little boy being paddled when I was in first or second grade, so '91-'93, in Missouri. We were supposed to be lining up for something and he was hiding under a table, so the teacher pulled him out and bent him over her lap right in the middle of the classroom with all the kids watching. I was always very good in school, but it was still terrifying. I just think that kind of environment isn't conducive to learning, if the kids are scared
