Re: “A piece of history on robbery suspect UPDATES

Our 3 children who we do not hit must overhear their teachers hit classmates with thick wooden paddles as a knee-jerk reaction to minor infractions such as not turning in homework or horsing around, without parental consent or notification, not required per Tennessee State Law. Our school board members ignored our written/verbal presentation at their school board meeting in April 2008 during "National Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month" to Demand they Prohibit Physical Punishment of Children in our schools, no letter, no phone call!

In the last week, news articles report that 2 Shelby County, TN mothers are being charged with Felony child abuse for hitting their children with belts or shoes while Shelby County Schools maintains Corporal Punishment in its Discipline Policy.

19 U.S. States legally allow mandatory reporters of child abuse, school teachers, coaches and administrators to hit students with thick wooden paddles to inflict pain to punish them for minor infractions with no safety standards, training, testing or certification to protect schoolchildren from injuries, known as Corporal Punishment, illegal in schools in 31 U.S. states and all U.S. prisons.

Search "A Violent Education" for disturbing Facts. School paddling injuries to students put school districts at risk of lawsuits paid for by taxpayers in the community.

TX and NC recently enacted laws Giving Parents the Right to Prohibit Corporal/Physical PAIN as Punishment of Their Children in Schools!

The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners ("NAPNAP") takes a direct stance in opposition to corporal punishment in the home as well as in schools.

The National Youth Rights Association plans to petition the Federal Government at their upcoming petition website We The People when it is launched to abolish corporal punishment of students in ALL U.S. schools.
