Just in case you wondered what kind of jobs those bullies and creeps got after junior high, here is your answer:  Mother's fury as Texas schoolgirl left 'bruised and blistered' after male vice principal SPANKED her for cheating (Daily Mail):

A Texas schoolgirl is nursing a bruised and 'blistered' behind after she was spanked by her male vice principal.
Springtown High School sophomore Taylor Santos was walloped by the teacher after allegedly letting another student copy her work.
But her mother, Anna Jorgensen, has complained to the school, furious that they allowed her daughter to be brutally paddled by a man.
Of course this is perfectly legal in Texas.  Supposedly a grown man isn't supposed paddle a 15 or 16 year-old girl, but the school district wants to fix that little wrinkle:
Springtown ISD Superintendent Mike Kelley did not agree to an on-camera interview with News 8. Over the phone, he explained schools never administer corporal punishment unless a parent requests it.
While Kelley would not discuss Taylor's case in particular, he did say the district might have made an error. He also stressed two adults are always present when punishment is administered.
But we've learned the superintendent wants to do away with the current policy. At a board meeting Monday, Kelley will ask the board to get rid of the same gender requirement. He said the makeup of administrators makes adhering to that policy very difficult on some campuses.
Jorgensen is upset. She said she will be at the school board meeting to urge them to vote "no."
"I think Taylor is proof that we need to keep that policy," she said. "I don't believe a man intentionally meant to do that to her, but it still happens, because men are too big and strong to be hitting 96-pound girls."
In Oregon and 30 other civilized states, this fuck of a vice-principal would be behind bars right now.  But not in Texas and in 19 other states.  (See list, and not surprisingly, almost every one of them is a red state.  The top beatingest state is Mississippi, which is last in pretty much everything except pounding on its students -- 7.5% of the public school students in Mississippi received beatings in 2008.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
