Panel OKs spanking ban


By John Fuquay
Staff writer

RALEIGH — A state House committee voted Wednesday to ban corporal punishment in public schools, setting up what could become an even bigger debate over local control.

wow. i guess i'm not nearly up on things. i thought for sure this kind of punishment in PUBLIC schools was outlawed. i cant believe that with our lawsuit happy culture this goes on.

"Hilton also said banning corporal punishment in schools is “one step away from going into people’s houses and telling them they can’t use this.â€

I thought corporal punishment was outlawed in schools too. Wow. I think it is great that these schools are starting to ban it. Hopefully the other states will step up and ban corporal punishment as well.
