Let's stop corporal punishment at schools:

Kay is a fellow blogger... She's just alerted me about the
HB 5628, the bill which would end school paddling by tying bans to federal education funding.

Did you know these facts????

(1) Twenty states still allow corporal punishment in schools and over 223,000 school children are hit each year,

(2) Corporal punishment can lead to student injuries and law suits against school boards,

(3) Over fifty national organizations including the National Education Association, the American Medical Association and the American Bar Association oppose school corporal punishment.

You can find more on HB 5628 and how to help on Kay's blog:

Please share this link with as many people as you can. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!
