Texas School Board Approves Cross-Gendered Student Paddlings

Are they aware of all the porn about this kind of stuff?

They're calling it the swat heard 'round the world—and its echo is still reverberating.

On Monday night, the school board in Springtown, Texas, voted to allow students to be paddled by employees of the opposite gender if their parents give written permission. The board's previous policy permitted only same-gender paddling.

No one really argued with the idea of corporal punishment; at issue was the question of who gets to administer it, specifically can an adult male swat young girls?
