Corporal punishment is as humiliating for him who gives it as for him who gives it as for him who receives it. I don't think paddling is okay cause it's bad for the kids and the way they will act will resolute in negative manner. There are many reasons why paddling should not be allowed in school, it's bad for the kids tests and it could lead to fight, it sends a bad message, who were paddled are less functioning, the principal is there to talk about what happened. Studies show that people who were paddled as kids are less functioning than people who haven't. paddling sends the wrong message to the kids, violence is not the answer. There are other ways to handle things like grounding and talking away their things. Paddling could be hard on the kids. they could start making bad grades on test and home work. Because every time they get a question wrong they could be scared that they will get hit cause teacher will think they should not get that wrong but. the kids might not have understood. The principal can pull them out of class and talk about what happen not just hitting them. The teacher might not even know the whole problem. So that kid might be getting hit for no reason. so they could talk about what happened and if the principal think the they should get in trouble then they can call the mom and dad and let them talk to their kid about it. Studies also show there when ever a kid is hit it makes them think I got hit every time I did something bad so should they and beat their kids. So in conclusion there are other ways to handle everything. Paddy is not the answer.
