A piece on NPR just now got me thinking. Does your school district use corporal punishment? Are you aware that you may not have legal recourse against your child's school if they paddle your child even if you've submitted a waiver from paddling? How would you react if your school called to tell you they'd just paddled your child?
Arizona does allow corporal punishment but its rarely used. I can't find specific info for my school district but it seems that they don't use it. I went to an elementary school in NM that used paddling HEAVILY and I think its part of why I don't personally use corporal punishment (the image of that paddle hanging in my principal's office is still too vivid). Since you all know I'm of the AP variety, you can probably imagine how I'd react if my child were paddled. You cannot even comprehend the sheer magnitude of fire and brimstone that would come raining down.
