Georgia school to bring back paddling

HEPHZIBAH, Ga. (WTHR) – A local school in Georgia is bringing back an old school policy to disciple their students this year.

Georgia School for Innovation and the Classics, a K through 9 charter school, recently sent home consent forms to inform parents of the new corporal policy.

According to NBC affiliate WAGT, the superintendent says they’ve received a little over a hundred forms back, a third of them giving consent to paddle their child.

The form says:

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.

If parents opt out of paddling, they have to agree to up to five days of suspension.

This type of discipline is still legal in Georgia and 19 other states but it's rare for a school to have a policy for it.

Under the school's policy, parents will be contacted if their child is paddled and the school says they will use a three strike policy so the paddling doesn't happen on the first or second offense.

Somewhat snarky question/statement...

Did anyone here ACTUALLY believe that they repugs in Washington would do anything about the treasonous bastard in the WH?
Yes, I am the glass half empty guy, but I knew they wouldn't do a fucking thing.
Prove me wrong you fucking cowards in Congress.

"A Date Which Will Live in Infamy"

Am I overstating it when I say that how America reacts to THIS DAY IN HISTORY will determine our path to the future?

I realize this will never happen, but IMO, it should...

Every REAL journalists in the world should stop covering the shit stain. Stop covering his stupid pressers, stop EVER showing him on the networks or in print. Stop letting his words be heard or shown...unless
it is to indicate the lies he tells and that he is a treasonous bastard.

He has shown NOTHING but disrespect for real journalism. He should be put on ignore.
