  • In April 2016, a viral video showed a Georgia school principal paddling a five-year-old

  • student.

  • The video prompted a public debate on the effectiveness and legality of corporal punishment,

  • which continues in many US schools despite efforts to outlaw it.

  • So we wanted to know, where is it still legal for teachers to hit students?

  • Well, in the United States, there is no federal law that addresses the use of corporal punishment

  • in schools, meaning that it’s up to states and individual school districts to regulate

  • it as they see fit.

  • As of August 2016, 31 states had outlawed the disciplinary practice and 19 allow it

  • to a certain extent, or with permission from a parent or guardian.

  • However it should be noted that corporal punishment is not pervasive in many of these states,

  • it just hasn’t been outlawed yet.

  • According to data from the Department of Education, more than 70 percent of children who were

  • disciplined with physical force reside in one of five states - all of which are in the south.

  • Corporal punishment has been used in US schools since the birth of America as a country, as

  • the practice was brought over by British colonizers.

  • Such discipline was, and continues to be justified by the common law doctrinein loco parentis”,

  • which literally translates toin the place of a parent”.

  • The idea is that because the child’s parent or guardian isn’t present, their teacher

  • automatically assumes all disciplinary rights and responsibilities.

  • And although adults inflicting pain on children may seem like an obvious breach of their rights,

  • it’s actually constitutional.

  • In 1977, the Supreme Court found that physical discipline does not violate a student’s

  • rights, even their freedom fromcruel and unusual punishment

  • So exactly how pervasive is corporal punishment?

  • Well federal data suggests that nationwide, one child is hit every 30 seconds in school.

  • This number increases considerably for black students, who receive corporal punishment

  • at nearly three times the rate of their peers.

  • Not even special ed students are exempt from such discipline.

  • According to a 2007 study by the Office for Civil Rights, nearly 42,000 disabled students

  • received corporal punishment over the course of a single school year, even though they

  • were likely misbehaving as a result of their disability.

  • Some educators argue that physical force is the most effective way to discipline.

  • However a slew of evidence suggests otherwise.

  • Countless studies have shown that students who are subjected to corporal punishment are

  • more likely to struggle academically and face psychological problems like depression, PTSD

  • and social anxiety later in life.

  • Reports like these have led a number of organizations, including the UN and the US Department of

  • Education, to strongly discourage the use of corporal punishment in school.

  • Most countries have ceded to these recommendations.

  • The practice is only unregulated in 10 countries, most of which are in the Middle East and Africa.

  • Meanwhile 106 countries have either outlawed or committed to outlawing corporal punishment

  • in any setting.

  • As with other aspects of its educational system, it may take a while for the US to catch up

  • to the rest of the world.

  • -

  • Concern for students well being doesn’t stop at corporal punishment.

  • Many schools, particularly those in war-torn countries, are so unstable that students and

  • faculty fear for their lives.

  • To learn more about these dangerous schools, check out this video.
