Just recently, the county I live in are now banning corporal punishment because it hasn’t been used in years. One of the board members who voted for it to be eliminated said within the article that it may not be a useful way to discipline kids.
The question now is, “What punishment, other than demerits, suspension, and detention, should the students receive if they act out of line?” How are those punishments, which are listed in the question, going to discipline the students? These school board members need to think about the consequences if they stray away from corporal punishment because if kids cannot behave themselves properly, how are they going to behave when they become adults? The “so-called” role model teachers nowadays have spiraled out of control and will never discipline anyone because they are afraid of being sued by a child’s parents. Adults have sheltered children for way too long. It’s time to stop nurturing and start disciplining them to the fullest extent.
