Corporal punishment in schools is still legal in 19 states #humanrights

I grew up in a state where corporal punishment in the schools was not legal. I assumed that it was not legal anywhere. I just found out today that it is still legal in 19 US states. Idaho is one. Is your state another? Find out here.

  1. That’s a pretty horrible thought. We homeschool but I’m curious to see what Ca law is. I suspect it isn’t legal here but i don’t know for sure.

    • It is not legal in California. In checking the stats for my school district for the last available year (2009) it seems to be used very rarely — a good thing, I guess, but it’d be better if it weren’t used at all.
