Rather than spend two days in in-school suspension for allegedly letting another student copy her classwork, Taylor Santos, a well-regarded student and athlete at Springtown High School, near Fort Worth, Texas, chose to get paddled.

There are several things I like about this article:

1. The former math teacher that is now a paid agitator; also note that he mentions some public skrewl officials get sadistic pleasure out of hitting kids

2. How it is okay to spank if it is a woman spanking a girl because even though the schools tell us we are all equal and girls are just as strong as men......well they admit men hit harder

3. Texas still allows spanking in school

If I got spanked at elementary school, I’d get it again when I got home, guaranteed. And that was California!

Ah, just remembering the good ol dayw with the boat paddle in the Principal’s office.

One smack is all it took.

At first you heard the noise. Then the pain starts to slowly set in.

Can almost feel it now.

I'm afraid that any spanking done today in Kalifornia schools only occur in "50 Shades of Gray" class I mean American Literature.

Mr. Campbell had a frat paddle with holes in it. Got it once! Once was enough!

Sorry, folks, I don't care what the infraction was, you don't allow any male to spank a teenage girl for ANY reason...

In Texas schools, discipline is usually the duty of the vice-principal. I was a Texas teacher, then a counselor for many years. I don't think spanking should be in schools. Alternate school was developed for this reason - to remove the child from his/her friends and make the point bad behavior has a consequence.

In this case, the girl is a good student and not a trouble maker. However, letting someone copy her work deserves that she understand this is a serious offense. If she did that in college, she risks being kicked out. She should be sent to the alternative school for those few days as the original punishment was. Never again would she make that mistake.

I recall a lab test in Biology in college. A student kept following me around, trying to copy my work. I finally went to the professor to report this so I wouldn't be suspected of helping this student cheat. I didn't want to risk being expelled from college.

Paddling done the right way is healthy and productive.

In this case, given the nature of the wounds, the male principal who did the paddling was obviously excessive. Probably a teamster type, who is mad with union power. He can legally abuse little girls, and he knows it.

Most government schools ARE child abuse.

The issue is not the spanking but that a male spanked a teen girl in violation of the school policy the assistant principal should have known.

You don’t want perverts getting their jollies seeing teen girl’s behinds.

It’s just not appropriate even for an innocent spanking, as I am sure he is not one of those perverts. But, it’s only appropriate to have the same gender doing the spanking.

Alternative school is so that good kids who did something wrong can get training in how to be bad from the professional punks.

You might want to actually read the article. There is NO policy that says discipline must be administered by by the same gender.

I can’t believe all the people here bragging about the methods that were used on them back in the day, like it was something to be proud of. I got swatted one time in junior high back in the ‘50s by a principal who was as sadistic as anyone I ever met. I hate that man to this day (yes, the old bastard is still alive).

Assault is assault. There is no gray area. If you can’t maintain discipline in your school without physically abusing your students, find a different line of work AWAY FROM CHILDREN! This man should be in jail.

I’ve never understood why so many conservatives want to let union thugs hit their kids.

What other choices does this male high school employee offer the young ladies at this high school?

This is nuts!

Actually, as I read the article, it very strongly implies that there IS a “same sex” policy, and the School Superintendent wants to change it.

"...Neither Jorgensen, nor the vice principal nor Springtown ISD Superintendent Mike Kelley, was available for comment by ABC News. But according to WFAA, Kelley is going to ask the school board to abolish the same gender policy, since adhering to it can be difficult on some campuses..."

Why would he want to abolish it if it doesn't exist?

Male adult employees spanking young ladies in high school, who are old enough for military service in less than two years?

Is there no other alternative like extra home work, after school clean up etc?

If this was my daughter, I'd be chasing this SOB down.

I don’t know about this particular situation, but i’d say a good portion of the young female population could use some regular spankings.

Spanking in elementary school ... maybe. I’d rather see the parents called in and required to administer consequences, under threat of having to keep their little darling at home the rest of his childhood.

Spanking in high school, no way no how no body. If there’s cheating going on, hit the kids in the grades, ban them from sports ... something that really matters to them. Now this girls is national celebrity Victim, and the focus is completely off her dishonesty.
