This. I only remember 2 kids getting spanked, and both seriously deserved it.

I'd have no issue with the school spanking my child if she was acting that poorly. Obviously, they go through a lot of "redirection" before they get to that point, and if the reminders, time outs, and other disciplinary actions don't work, do it with my blessing.
