Paddling was an outrage

Published 3:30 pm Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I am outraged by what I saw on the news! A child sent home bruised from three paddlings at school. I would think after the first paddling a parent would be called before a second then a third paddling.

Whomever did this should be held accountable. If a parent gives permission for their child to be paddled, they must have some trust in their school. This is an abuse of that trust! I know children need to be disciplined but not to the extent of bruises!
