    I haven't heard of anyone using corporal punishment in years and it doesn't seem to be doing our students any favors. Nowadays they just call the cops and let the cops deal with the little monsters. Don't think they don't fight back either. Which is better- an occasional paddle/ ruler slap/ chalkboard eraser or getting forcefully handcuffed in a classroom by two large cops who may use a club on you or taser you if they think you are a threat? OR if you do it often enough then you get sent to the reject school where they have rampant problems with older kids raping and molesting the younger ones in typical jailhouse fashion. It seems to me that a ruler slap across your hand is a lot less of disruption to the learning process. I guess over medicating your child instead of teaching it discipline is the way to go these days. It used to take a village to raise a child, I guess we don't trust people enough nowadays to let that happen. If parents aren't going to raise their kids right so there is no need for corporal punishment or kiddie jails, who is left to do it?
