Seriously, WTF Texas?!?!?

In an era when students talk back to teachers, skip class and wear ever-more-risque clothing to school, one central Texas city has hit upon a deceptively simple solution: Bring back the paddle.

Most school districts across the country banned paddling of students long ago. Texas sat that trend out. Nearly a quarter of the estimated 225,000 students who received corporal punishment nationwide in 2006, the latest figures available, were from the Lone Star State.



But even by Texas standards, Temple is unusual. The city, a compact railroad hub of 60,000 people, banned the practice and then revived it at the demand of parents who longed for the orderly schools of yesteryear. Without paddling, "there were no consequences for kids," said Steve Wright, who runs a construction business and is Temple's school board president.



Since paddling was brought back to the city's 14 schools by a unanimous board vote in May, behavior at Temple's single high school has changed dramatically, Wright said, even though only one student in the school system has been paddled.



"The discipline problem is much better than it's been in years," Wright said, something he attributed to the new punishment and to other discipline programs schools are trying. Residents of the city's comfortable homes, most of which sport neighborly, worn chairs out front, praise the change.

"There are times when maybe a good crack might not be a bad idea," said Robert Pippin, a custom home builder who sports a goatee and cowboy boots. His son graduated from Temple schools several years ago.

Corporal punishment remains legal in 20 states, mostly in the South, but its use is diminishing. Ohio ended it last year, and a movement for a federal ban is afoot. A House subcommittee held a hearing on the practice Thursday, and its chairman, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), is gearing up for a push to end the practice once and for all. She plans to introduce legislation within weeks.

Hit my kid, and I'll hit you.

Your kid probably needs to be hit. Look at his mohawk. Soon he will be doing heroin and spreading AIDS to other children.

Or he'll end up a desperate fuck on the internet whining about everything and hitting on anything with a skirt..

if you're afraid for your child in this situation it sounds like you are probably raising a little bastard that needs some discipline

if they're paddling your kid for being a douchebag you probably need to reevaluate your ability to parent and adjust accordingly. seems pretty obvious to me

it's more about there being consequences for their actions anyway, not the actual paddling. in that entire school system they said only 1 kid has been paddled so far but the kids are all much better behaved

I'm only discussion the principle of it. Any type of corporal punishment carried out on a child should be done by his/her parents. Emmett's school report his behavior to us every day, and we decide based on what he has done what his punishment will be.

if he continues to act up you're clearly not getting the job done and he doesn't fear your reprisal. but it's easy to play armchair qb as I don't know really how difficult it is to raise a kid nor do I want to

It's not easy, and it's not the same for any two kids.. Also it's very possible that your kid could get in trouble for something he didn't do. That happened to me a few time in high school.. There's just too many variables, and it's best to just use standard techniques such as removing the problem child from the others, and reporting his behavior to his parents so they can choice how to handle it. I know some parents do suck and don't care if their child is naughty at school. In these cases, kick the child out of the school for repetitive bad behavior.
