Texas teachers can paddle kids this school year

In Texas at the Three Rivers school district board meeting paddling has been approved as corporal punishment for when a student misbehaves. Corporal punishment is defined as the deliberate infliction of physical pain by hitting, paddling, spanking, slapping, or any other physical force used as a means of discipline. Students whose parents have provided written and verbal consent will receive one paddling for an infraction when they misbehave at school. At the beginning of the upcoming school year parents decide whether to opt in or out.
