Child Abuse in Schools
Sadly, in 21 of our United States, teachers, who are licensed and trained professionals are allowed by law to abuse children. Hundreds of thousands of children each year are battered by wooden boards wielded by adults. It is called corporal punishment, but it is abuse.
When the professionals and educated ones in a community join hands with other abusers and agree that children need to be beaten to learn life's lessons, it is a sad day for all involved. Violence begins anew with the next generation.
