Then I would sue the hell out of the school.

Yes, I knew it was legal, practiced in our school as a last resort and I opted out. If it comes to the point of paddling, I'm required to come get my child immediately. I trust them to follow this because they know how much trouble they'd be in if it they didn't have my consent (which they don't).
