Welp, a Georgia school, like many others in at least 19 states, has acquired this system to where students can be disciplined by being spanked with a 24 inch wooden paddle—with the permission of the parents. Georgia School for Innovations and the Classics reportedly already has a lot of parents who have agreed to this.

WRDW obtained a parental consent for the new policy which says that students will be taken “behind closed doors” and will then have to put their hands on their knees and proceed to “be struck on the buttocks with a paddle”

The students reportedly have a three-strike rule before the staff will resort to the paddling. In case you’re wondering, this system is perfectly legal in Georgia given the consent of the parent.
