FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - An East Allen County Schools parent is accusing her son's teacher of spanking him with his pants down in front of the class.
Fort Wayne Police confirm a detective is investigating an incident at Village Elementary after the child's mother called police Monday.
In a report, the mother says the child was acting up in class. The teacher made the student sit in the corner and when he continued to act up the teacher pulled the boys pants down and spanked him for misbehaving.
The mom says the child is mildly disabled.
East Allen County School officials confirm a teacher is on administrative leave and they have a "no corporal punishment" policy district-wide.
Hit ‘em again!
I don’t have tooo many objections to the spanking, but was pulling the kid’s pants down in front of the class really necessary? that part I’d question most harshly
Oh my goodness. I hope this isn’t true but if it is then heads need to roll. There is a place for corporal punishment but it isn’t in public with pants pulled down. Any loving discipline we give our children should be done in private out of respect for the child’s dignity.
I must be getting old. I spent about my elementary school life in California and Florida and I was spanked more than once by teachers, and once by our principal in California. That was the one you didn’t want: He had a paddle with holes in it and knew how to use it. Now it’s a major scandal? No wonder we’re on a downhill slide...
My fifth grade teacher had a large paddle that hung behind her desk. It had an applique on it that stated:
Never spank a child in the face
Nature provides a better place
And I tell you, that old spinster lady could HIT!!!
Need more of that both in the schools and at home.
From what I’ve been reading about teachers I’m surprised that she stopped with a spanking when she got his pants down.
The cure for A.D.H.D. is oftentimes B.E.L.T.
I was paddled in middle school and probably deserved more than I got but it was in private and my pants weren’t pulled down.
This is very different than when we were in school.
ping for the list
It’s scandalous because the teacher pulled his pants down in front of the class. That is flat wrong.
The pants down is the objection in this story mostly.
Of course, the way a lot of kids wear their “pants on the ground” just bending him over to paddle him probably caused his saggy pants to fall down.
IIRC, most of mine were pants down, as were other kids. Then I’d catch #e!! at home and get worse. I remember one teacher had been on the Bataan Death March and my dad was a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant. Think about how red my @$$ was at the end of that...
I grew up in Texas schools in the days when spanking in the principal’s office was done, and NO ONE’S pants were pulled down.
My Jr. High math teacher (also Asst. Principal) was a retired Marine officer. Guy was over six feet tall. Never saw him spank anyone, he didn’t have to. The intimidation was more than enough.
