A charter school located in Hephzibah, Georgia, is reintroducing paddling as a form of discipline for students. According to CBS News, ” The  Georgia School of Innovation, and the Classics issued consent forms to parents, detailing the new policy of using a wooden board to spank a child as punishment.”

The consent form reads, “A student will be taken into an office behind closed doors. The student will place their hands on their knees or piece of furniture and will be struck on the buttocks with a paddle.” Superintendent Jody Boulineau revealed one-third of parents gave the school consent to turn their new policy into full effect.

Reports also claim students will be paddled with a board 24 inches long, six inches wide and 3/4 inches thick, only after their third offense. No more than three hits should be given. This is not right!
