SEXUAL ASSAULT CRIME OCCURRED HERE IN MY OPINION. VP COULD EASILY ASK ANY FEMALE TEACHER ADMIN OR EVEN TAYLOR'S MOM TO DO THE SPANKING. I SEE THIS AS 1) ASSAULT 2) SEXUAL ASSAULT (FROM MY POINT OF VIEW). THE VP SHOULD BE FIRED AND A COURT ORDER SHOULD KEEP HIM AWAY FROM KIDS AND TEENS. THIS IS SEXUAL ASSAULT. VP COULD HAVE EASILY ASKED ANY FEMALE TEACHER ADMINISTRATOR OR EVEN TAYLOR'S MOM TO DO THE SPANKING. I PERSONALLY SEE THIS AS 1) ASSAULT 2) SEXUAL ASSAULT. THE FAMILIES THAT HAVE HAD THEIR DAUGHTERS "SPANKED" SHOULD SUE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND USE THE MONEY FOR PRIVATE TUTORS. OR SCHOOL SUPPLIES. OR A NEW IPHONE 5. THIS VP SHOULD NOT BE WORKING AT ANY SCHOOL EVER AGAIN. IN CALIFORNIA WHERE I'M FROM, THE PRINCIPAL WOULD BE IN PRISON. THE VP IS A CAREER TEACHER SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR. HE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WOULD EVENTUALLY HAPPEN. BUT IS THIS GUY A PERVERT? HE WANTS TO DO THE SPANKING TOO MUCH - EVEN OVER HIS BETTER JUDGMENT? IS THE VP SADISTIC AND GETTING SEXUAL PLEASURE FROM THIS? Teenage girl spanked by male vice principal: What's wrong with this picture? September 23, 2012 05:25 PM EDT
What year is it again? 2012? Are you sure? Americans live in a country where if you spank your child and leave a mark, you risk being accused of child abuse. It's hard to believe that there are nineteen states actually condoning some forms of corporal punishment in their school systems A recent paddling incident involving a Springtown High School student has captured the attention of Americans from all over the country. Taylor Santos, a student and athlete near Fort Worth, Texas had the option of spending two days in in-school suspension for allegedly letting another student copy her classwork or choose to get paddled ABC reports that Santos went to the vice principal's office to request a paddling because her grades are very important to her. She called her mom, Anna Jorgensen daughter was okay Mom and daughter expecting the "punisher" to be a female as the school policy mandates that males paddle the males and females paddle the females Santos was subjected to a spanking session from the vice principal who is a man. The VP issued the punishment while a female witness was in the room watching. According to ABC, Jorgensen states that because of the force that Santos was struck, her bottom was fire engine red and looked as if it had been "burned and blistered." Santos' mother took photos as evidence.
Are you in a little bit of shock? This seems about as ludicrous as abolishing every type of birth control doesn't it? If you live in one of the other 31 states that deems this act illegal, you are probably outraged that this practice takes place.
ABC reports that the Supreme Court ruled in 1977 that it was legal unless it was abolished by local authorities. Efforts to ban it in Texas as well as a handful of other states have failed. It wasn't until 2011, when laws were introduced in Texas giving parents the right to exempt their students from paddling.
According to school policy, parents who don't want their children to be subject to corporal punishment must submit a written statement each year. Jorgensen was among the many parents who condone the practice in her daughter's school with the current same-gender policy in place.
WFAA reports that Springtown ISD Superintendent Mike Kelley is going to ask the school board to abolish the same gender policy, since adhering to it can be difficult on some campuses.
Jorgensen will reportedly be at the school board meeting to encourage them not to abolish the same-gender policy.
"I think Taylor is proof that we need to keep that policy," she said. "I don't believe a man intentionally meant to do that to her, but it still happens, because men are too big and strong to be hitting 96-pound girls." old-fashioned tactics in the classroom, why not have the kids write something on the chalkboard a hundred time, put them in the corner or dish up some good old-fashioned after-school detention? KID subjected to what some call "physical abuse" when teenagers that break the law aren't physically touched? Is this child abuse Jimmy Dunne, president of People Opposed to Paddling Students (POPS) believes that it is abuse math teacher in the Houston Middle Schools, Dunne founded POPS in 1981 receiving delivering the punishment. But he refused to participate after noticing teachers were "getting sadistic pleasure out of hitting these kids Dunne has met a lot of resistance schools to abolish the practice. In June anti-corporal punishment in schools rally in Washington, D.C., and will be attending a school board meeting on Monday after a 13-year-old student at Barbers Hill Middle School in Houston was covered with welts and bruises after a paddling Members of the Texas legislature say, 'I was paddled local district to decide. They think it's good discipline. But it's legalized child abuse. I school, the person would be arrested." mitt romney
