Georgia School Seeks To Bring Back Paddling

HEPHZIBAH, Ga. (WPMI) – A charter school in Georgia is bringing back an old-fashioned form of discipline that has many parents up in arms.

According to WPMI, parents at The Georgia School for Innovation and the Classics received a consent form asking them to allow their student to be paddled.

The form asked parents if they are okay with administrators hitting their child with a wooden paddle.

The form says students will be taken to an office, behind closed doors, and will place their hands on either their knees or a piece of furniture, and will be struck on the buttocks with a paddle.

The form says no more than three licks should be given.
