This abuse is going on all over the mid/south US in 19 states and the mainstream media rarely ever reports it. While most of America has long banned this violence in our public schools, these student beatings are commonplace happening every single school day in 19 states with Mississippi and Texas the worst offender states. It is still inconceivable to me how anyone given what we know the harm this has caused thousands would ever permit a six ft 220lb adult male school employee (who is not the parent and who is not qualified or certified or “trained” to beat human beings with wooden weapons) to beat the buttocks of a 90lb 16-18 year old sexually developing female (or male for that matter) with a two foot wooden board. Would you allow these people to assault your Mother, Father, or any other adult relative? This is being done to the bodies of minors.These acts are demeaning, degrading and sexually offensive particularly done to that to that age group. Because there is no federal laws protecting public school students this goes on and on.
