A mother in Texas is livid: not that her 15-year-old daughter was paddled at school for cheating on a test both mom and daughter actually approved the punishment but that she was spanked by a male vice principal.
Taylor Santos, 15, a sophomore at Springtown High School Texas, allegedly let another student copy her work and was given a two-days of in-school suspension. After one day of missing classes, Santos asked if she could get a paddling instead of missing a second day; she called her mother and got approval for the change.
But her mother, Anna Jorgensen, is now super-pissed. A male vice principal spanked Taylor Santos instead of a female administrator although there was a female in the room the whole time. I knew school policy was females swatted females, and males swatted males, Jorgensen said. If Taylor wanted that, I said I would be fine. Shes now upset that her daughters bottom has welts and bruises.
I have twin daughters about that age and that guy had better HOPE the police got to him before I did, if he tried that with mine.
Sounds like a frivolous issue to me.
Sounds like someone’s mom needs a spanking.
Don’t worry I have a naughty wife at home!
I like how the author goes on to insult the entire “South” region of the US and then says that she (the author) likes to be spanked in bed. Really nice source ya got there.
Sec. 37.0011. USE OF CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. (a) In this section, "corporal punishment" means the deliberate infliction of physical pain by hitting, paddling, spanking, slapping, or any other physical force used as a means of discipline. The term does not include:
(1) physical pain caused by reasonable physical activities associated with athletic training, competition, or physical education; or
(2) the use of restraint as authorized under Section 37.0021.
(b) If the board of trustees of an independent school district adopts a policy under Section 37.001(a)(8) under which corporal punishment is permitted as a method of student discipline, a district educator may use corporal punishment to discipline a student unless the student's parent or guardian or other person having lawful control over the student has previously provided a written, signed statement prohibiting the use of corporal punishment as a method of student discipline.
(c) To prohibit the use of corporal punishment as a method of student discipline, each school year a student's parent or guardian or other person having lawful control over the student must provide a separate written, signed statement to the board of trustees of the school district in the manner established by the board.
(d) The student's parent or guardian or other person having lawful control over the student may revoke the statement provided to the board of trustees under Subsection (c) at any time during the school year by submitting a written, signed revocation to the board in the manner established by the board.

Yeah, those violent southern white guys are just itching to beat up black children.
I cannot describe how insulting I find that to be. Maybe that just my "innate white racism" affecting my judgement.
Saw an interview - the guy left more than welts. Two grown men spanking a 15 year old behind closed doors. No way in the world is that appropriate.
Further - spanking a 15 year old anything is counter productive. A 5 year old - yeah...
The real story is that if her mom did it, she’d be arrested.

For those ancient enough to remember Martin Mull’s “Fernwood 2-Nite”, look up the `school spanking’ episode. This was in 1977 and it will show once again that
“Truth is always stranger than fiction”.
I’ve got 3 daughters. If they allowed someone to cheat off their papers, spanking at school is the least of their troubles.
