Should Your Child Be Spanked at School? In 19 States, It’s Legal

Corporal punishment is still active in schools nationwide in the United States. Two-thirds of Tennessee school children attend “Paddling Schools” TODAY! Corporal Punishment is Prohibited in Nashville and Memphis schools. Florida, Alabama and Tennessee among states where Schools Can Paddle Students Against Parents’ Wishes. It is one of the most controversial methods of child discipline, but spanking in school — usually with a wooden or fiberglass paddle — is still allowed by law in 19 states. The practice is most prevalent in the Midwest and South. According to a report from the Juvenile Information Exchange, more than 28,500 students in Georgia were spanked in 2008, mostly in rural counties. The number is much smaller in Florida — around 3,600 last year — but that’s where the issue is getting new attention.
