I couldn't agree more...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Those who argue that corporal punishment in the school system works are achieving the short term results they're looking for at the expense of the long term effects. Studies repeatedly show that children who are in schools with a corporal punishment policy perform below the national average in every subject. Symptoms of withdrawal and depression are more prevalent, and there are significantly higher incidences of violence among children in these schools.

In order to compete globally in the future, it makes no sense to continue with practices that put our children—our future—at risk. To accept corporal punishment in schools is to legally lower the standard of learning for our children, in this generation and for generations to come.
