Should Corporal Punishment Return To Public Schools?


Like many of you, when I attended public school one of the things that kept me following a path of the straight and narrow was the possibility I might get called into the principal's office for a whoopin. In classrooms today, corporal punishment occurs far too infrequently.

It seems like in almost every aspect of life today, political correctness has taken the place of common sense. The good news is, most Americans are now viewing political correctness as a negative rather than a positive in everyday life.

Without consequences, kids in school and even adults tend to follow a path of; if it feels good do it. Older Americans, like myself, learned long ago that a person who cannot control his or her emotions tend to drift into the darker side of human nature.

That is why I believe corporal punishment should return to public schools.
