A Georgia School Bringing Back Paddling as Punishment

Published on September 10, 2018

According to Business Insider, The Georgia School for Innovation and Classics is planning on using paddling- the action of spanking students with a paddle- as a form of discipline for current students. The school in Hephzibah Georgia educates students in kindergarten through 9th grade. Although the school has sent consent forms to parents, only about a third have agreed to allow their children to be paddled by the school’s faculty. If parents don’t agree to the paddling, they have to agree to five days of suspension as an alternate punishment for their child. According to the school’s superintendent Jody Boulineau, “There was a time where corporal punishment was kind of the norm in school and you didn’t have the problems that you have.”
