Tough Cheese

by duncanr

A man in California has been sentenced to 7 yr 8 months in prison.

His crime?

Spare the rod . . .

Some schools in Queensland, Australia still administer corporal punishment – with the parent’s permission.

This is apparently more frequent in ‘religious’ schools.

Colin Krueger, principal of Mueller College at Rothwell on Brisbane’s northern outskirts, said parents are asked to sign a consent form as part of enrolment which gives teachers the power to use “firm but fair” discipline “administered in a spirit of love according to Proverbs 13.24, 22:6 and 22:15”, which promote the “rod of discipline” to “correct the foolishness raging in every child”.

Bundaberg Christian College principal Mark Bensley said punishment – using a ‘paddle’ (a bat) to stike a child’s buttocks – was used as a last resort and with the blessing of parents.

“It is always administered in a loving way. In fact, we pray with them afterwards.”

Well that’s all right then, innit?

Though I find it hard to imagine how one beats a child in a ‘loving’ way!!!

To me, this is less like discipline – more like child abuse!!!
